Loremaster  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: v2.02 20091208

After downloading the latest version, please login and out of all your characters before uploading your file. This will ensure your achievements get correctly recorded.

Description
The purpose of this addon is twofold. Firstly, to help create a database of quests that count towards the Loremaster achievements. Secondly, it displays that information in-game in the quest description.

On quest completion, it records whether or not the quest counts towards one of the Loremaster achievements. The saved variables can then be uploaded to a website in order to build up a list of quests that count towards the achievements (and those that don't).

The more people upload their data, the more accurate the addon gets. By enabling debug mode (/lm debug), you can see how many positive and negative submissions had been made at the last update. Currently, a number of quests have no data, and of the remainder, many have only one or two submissions. This is not enough to give an fully accurate picture, more are needed!

EveryQuest integration
Version 2.0 has major new functionality. If you have both EveryQuest and Loremaster installed, you can use the following functions to enhance them both:

/lh eqignore - Sets all quests that have less positive responses than negative ones - ie that either definitely don't count, or probably don't count - to 'Ignored' status in EveryQuest.

/lh equnignore - Clears the ignore list previously created with eqignore.

What this means is that, if you have run a quest scan (either on the PTR or when 3.3 hits), and you run eqignore, the EQ window will only show either quests that probably do count, or that have no data, thus giving you a checklist of quests to complete. Pretty cool, eh?

In addition, from r102 onwards, Kandarz has added Loremaster support to Everyquest. Quests that count for Loremaster will have an [L] next to them in the EveryQuest window, and the tooltip will contain the Loremaster text from the quest log window. Big thanks to him for adding this!

Submitting data
To help, please upload your saved variables file to this website:
http://www.jaffa.f2s.com/

The file to upload can be found at
{WoW folder}/WTF/Account/{Accountname}/SavedVariables/loremaster.lua

You could also download a little app I wrote called LoremasterSync which will upload your files and also download the latest data file to the addon.

Notes
This addon is maintained on Curse. Please leave any comments or tickets there.

This is my first addon, and I used EveryQuest for a number of ideas on how to do things. Kandarz has written a great addon there, you should check it out.

It's not dead, it is only updated on Curse; for some unknown reason. Anyone know of a better addon that is up to date?

Now that it is integrated with Everyquest, that addon will give you a list of quests to do in each zone that count for Loremaster.

Good to see someone beat me to it!

I was considering doing this as one of the many addon ideas I haven't had time to get to yet. I'm glad to see you did it, and furthermore, already have a website set up to upload data.
I'm also pleased to see that you're willing to share this data with other developers (addon or otherwise).
I'll be downloading your addon and uploading data semi-regularly.

As I'm fairly proficient in PHP, and decent in LUA, let me know if you need any help with the project! (PM please, I don't check comments very often )
