Anyways, I do lissent to you, I will need some time to consider this option.

Just to attempt to clarify this...whatever type of argument this is...what, distraction or something?

The concept isn't on paper...that was about 9 years ago. This is a matter of law. Communism isn't comparable, where the heck did that come from?? The concept DOES and IS and WILL continue to work...It's the Law. You do not have intellectual copyright on the mods on your site. Therefore, BY LAW, you can't post them.

This isn't a debate. Its the Law.

And if you REALLY want to bring Microsoft into this, who has been battling the supreme court for years due to anti-trust law violations, excuse, alleged violations. Popularity way? Where did that come from. We are stating very clearly to you, remove all mods from your site that are not yours by copyright. THEN you message the author asking permission to post the mods and allow them to update the mods to keep them current.

Good luck with your site, your defensive posturing and confusing arguments have already lost you a customer. Why would I go to a site of already dubious reputation, when I can come to well established sites with great reputations of looking out for both the auther and users?

Hi all!

Thank you for your replies, and I have really taked you in concideration.

After evaluating the whole service and feedback, I have decided to discontinue the wow-db.com UI Mod service, the website will continue to exist in other directions.

Currently I am developing a specific "tailored" search engine for world of warcraft, where people can search for specific world of warcraft stuff.

The service is up for test:
http://www.wow-db.com/search.asp

If you have any feedback on the service or you would like to contribute please mail to (admin at wow-db.com)

I have also made a search toolbar to world of warcraft.

I hope we see you sometime near the future.

It looks good, but Seems the results are often unreliable

The General Wow Search should only search the sites from the dropdown imho....

The last item in the General WOW Search dropdown is "World Wide Web"


Site looks great by the way - haven't had a chance to play around with it much but worked fairly well so far.

If you use the dropdown feature(s) you will get very correct results, and when the WoW XML Sitemap standard is in, you will get exactly matched results.

Also the site will index the pages people click on, so by that way there will be a priority system from popular searches/links.

Well this is just a beginning, there is lots more work to do

/me work work

playin a little more with it it seems really good...
IS there anyway to leave out the site selection part and if you select "ui mods" it would search
Curse/ wowi/Worldofwar/wowguru ..etc

if you select "item" it would have a second dropdown for slot and search thott alakhazam etc automatically

if you select forums it would search official wow / and the forums on all of the other sites (leaving out the rest of the WWW)

etc...like if i just wanted to search curse(although your ssearch seems alot better than their search) I could just go to curse but if i just wanted a specific adon i could just use your search without knowing what site its on

But yeh it seems really good

[edit] damn your search blows Bliz's stoopid forum search out of the water

another option is to have a simple search that defaults to searching all sites, and then an advanced search that allows you to select specific sites. Put them in the advanced section as checkboxes so that people can search any combination of said websites...

The search function in these forums are a good place to start to get an idea how such a simple vs advanced search switch would be structured...

I dunno if its possible but if you had like a forum preview showing the last 10 threads in each forum

Just scrolldown or get real fancy and do little + boxes

that would be so bomb...and if you registered you could customize the forum display to show more that 10 threads or to only show specific forums and not others ...you know options

yeah then it would really kick ass

If i seem incoherant ill blame it on jerome baker
[edit] and search stats like 10 most common search words or phrases
and if you select mods the display will switch to the latest files on each of the major mod sites
(and have class sections that return matches for all the sites for that class)
omg that would be awesomeness

Well if you leave it at "General WoW Search" , (all) , (all) it will just search general wow sites. It should search for UI Mods on all sites, try use "word1 + word2" it will force to have both words after each other.

There is lots of possibilities, you can even input multiple words in the search string.

Input this following line in the search field.
site:yourwebsite.com searchWord1 searchWord2 or "searchWord1 + searchWord2"

The fact is that the "dropdown" boxes is not independent by each other, you can leave some and select some, like if you select "forum" and "general wow search" and "items" it will go for *.site forum + items.

I will also make a guide how to use the search, so you can find more optimized information.

Infact there is endless possibilities with this and I think it can get quite interesting.

Just keep playing with it.

Edit: I will increase the amount of search results and show multiple pages.

It looks really really good Brugs! Nice work!

I was disappointed to see that our site isn't listed though. *pouts*

BTW, we're giving you some free press over on the Blizz forums:

On your drop down list of various sites. I know that it'll (hopefully?) come up on a regular search, but ..

And for the record, I was actually just teasing.

Brugs, I'm impressed. You took what was a messy situation, with a lot of unhappy people, and turned it around. You've taken what would have been a redundant site and turned it into something that the entire Blizz community needed desperately. And I know the amount of work that went into the old site, and has and is continuing to go into the new version. Kudos to you.

And a bit more free press, here: http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/th...=1#post4816003
