Share Carbonite Notes

Is it possible to share Carbonite map notes. For example, if I mapped all the locations of rare elites in Pandoria, can I share that with others so they don't have to go through the painstaking process? If so, how? And is there a place on the web where people are doing this already?

it's coming soon (tm) when I overhaul the notes system, i'm going to make it easy for people to link into the notes system, so people can make addons extremely easy for it.

For now no, there is no easy way.

Question

I'm curious and hopeful about whether or not the myriad Notes I created will be accessible to all of my characters -- even after updates and patches. Everytime I turn around, I no longer have the notes available and I have no idea how to "add them back into my game" again.

If the Notes could be a separate file (which I could back-up) and then "paste" it back into some folder (or, whatever) location, that would be fine.

Can that be done?

It takes HOURS to create the ones I want to keep and use (so that each of my char's will display them). It's a pain to re-create them, redundantly.

in the current alpha release people are testing notes are already account wide, so every character shares them.

It is also a seperate file, Carbonite.Notes.lua in your saved variables so it is easy to backup.

However I wouldn't jump on the alpha just for it, because while right now you can import notes to it, soon it's going the called carbonite2 instead of carbonite and I have no plans (at least for now, we'll see ><) of maintaining a carbonite section of carbonite2 just for backwards compatability (ie access to NxData in carbonite.lua saved variables)

Thank you!!!

Just so I can be clear on what you said...

After Carbonite2 becomes finalized and released, are you saying that none of the Notes we've created can be inserted (somehow) into the new, released version? Do we have to start over again?

Sorry, but if I ask now, I and others may not have to ask again after the release.

That is FANTASTIC news! I can't wait for this new release. I hope I can hold out on reinstalling WoW until this new release comes out, as I am in dire need of uninstalling wow and reinstalling it completely...maybe even a hard drive format. If a small donation would help speed things up, I can see what I can do. It would be well worth the investment.

so, it will require an addon? it would be nice to be able to just share favorites somehow. the carbonite users would be a "force".

To "convert" / "import" notes from Carbonite to Carbonite2, wouldnt it just be a matter of editing some of the (Carbonite) lua files in notepad? ...or is that completely off base?
I also have notes from Carbonite that I would like to be able to access in Carbonite 2, and am capable of editing a few lines of text and getting the files into the appropriate directories.

Great add-on, and Im curious to see how the modular approach improves Carbonites potential scope.
Thanks again.

if I released it the way it is, yes that would work... but the current notes don't support dungeon levels which is noticable if you try and create a note in the shrine, it will pop up in the shrine and out in the valley. So i plan on rewriting the notes system.

Rythal (and team), I really hope this is a redundant suggestion for Carbonite2 but...

If the NOTES and NODES databases (I would be surprised if the two systems aren't effectively the same thing) are upgraded to a plaintext format and given simple import/export support then Carbonite users would be able to SHARE them (and hand-modify them) very easily. This could also allow the modularisation of the notes and bookmarks databases themselves e.g. for world events or whatever.

Regards,
