Announcing Character Profiles online!

Rollie

 
WarcraftRealms.com is proud to present our implementation of Character Profiling! Not wanting to push any particular design on our end users, we have gone with an open ended option. The default view is a no frills display of your character data and equipment.

You can see an example here:

http://www.warcraftrealms.com/profile.php?charid=523520

Soon you will be able to fully customize how your profile looks. If you know a little CSS then you're in business! I will also be providing some different views for profiles!

In order to have your character profile displayed, you will need to download the World of Warcraft CensusPlus UI Mod. It will automatically capture your character's data while playing. When you Upload your data file, you will have the option of processing your character data.

By default, the character profiles are hidden. You will need to log in and visit your character's history page in order to enable the profile to be seen. You must have claimed your character in order to unhide the profile data.

As always comments and suggestions are welcomed!

In there i'm lvl 49 and my old guild, but my profile says 50 and my new guild.So what gives?
Rollie says:
October 20,2005 at 22:51
Profile data is separate from the WR data. I may tie these together in the future, but for now they are separate entities. It was just easier to get it online this way. Be sure to manually upload and click the Process Profiles optional link after your file is uploaded.

I need to make it an automatic processing since I made them default to hidden. I'll get that done asap. This should make the UU users happy too =)

I think it only processes the character info if you upload through the website, not through Uni-Uploader. Of my two main characters only one has information and it's a few days out of date... and I remember having the option to upload that data when I used the web upload a few days back. I hadn't used the other main character for some time at that point, and have done (and had uploads via UU processed) since then, so I'm guessing there's a conenction there.

Any chance of making it possible to upload the character data with Uni-Uploader, if I'm right that that's the problem?
Balgair says:

Ah, beaten to it lol ;) (Would've just edited my post but I don't see an edit button)

I have a problem with my main chat. When I update the .lua it gives me the option to load the profile of my second char but doesn't give me the option for the main. I guess it might be because the name of the main is Seventit? and it's got a strange char at the end "?" which might not always recognised in databases or such, but that's just a wild guess.

Am I wrong ? Is there something that I'm not doing ?

Anyway great addition, great job, thanks.

Hello together,

I think I'am to stupid to do this.

First I claimed my character.
Then I visited the character history page but I do not see any button to unhide my profile. Where can I activate the profile?

I am thankful for every suggestion.
Thanks in advance.

Balgair - Edit button in top right corner of each post =)

Seventit? - That could possibly pose a problem, I'll have to look into it.

geoline - what is your char name and server?

Whenever I click YES to upload my profile data, I get the following error:

updating Zeboim
Locale => US <=
Unknown on Moonrunner not found! Unable to update this character!

I have her claimed, but I don't see any sort of profile enabling button or link on her character page or on my complete character sheet. The char in question is Zeboim on Moonrunner (US).
Rollie says:
October 21,2005 at 11:37
Balgair - You are probably correct for this forum!

geoline & Firedancer - fixed a problem where it wasn't working correctly for unguilded characters. I re-ran both of your latest submissions and your profiles should be there for you now!
geoline says:
October 21,2005 at 12:17
Thanks a lot. Now it works fine :)
Firedancer says:
October 21,2005 at 13:8
Thanks, Rollie :)
Zimeron says:
October 21,2005 at 16:30
kk. Make a post here once you make it UU compatible, but that leads to say, that it will auto do it, so what about the ppl that don't want it to be done O_o?
Rollie says:
October 21,2005 at 16:40
Well, by default the profiles are hidden. You have to un-hide them in order for them to be viewable. Do you see a problem with that?
Seventitý says:
October 21,2005 at 18:48
Looks like I was right. Resubmitted some data tonight and look at what it said:

updating Seventitý
Locale => EU <=
CHARACTER: Seventitý on EU-Crushridge not found! Unable to update this character!

Profile data is not currently listed on your character sheet. This will be added soon, I just need to complete some user option choices first.


See the way it spells Seventit? ? That's the problem.

Just FYI, again thanks.
Rollie says:
October 21,2005 at 20:12
I made an addition to check for UTF-8 characters and reran your submission. Give it a look now.
Seventitý says:
October 22,2005 at 3:47
This is really an amazing service.

Thank you very much rollie. I appreciate.

Okay, fixed that one now too =)
Skyfire says:

I can't find the "Unhide button", or the "Updating Skyfire" button / link.

Am I blind, or is it just not there?
Skyfire says:
October 23,2005 at 14:2
= / Never Mind, prolly because I have the wrong version... isn't it?
Rollie says:
October 23,2005 at 19:38
Wrong version of? It will only be present if you have submitted your profile data. Remember, at this time, processing of the profile data is an optional step in the submissions process. You need to click the link after you have uploaded data.

The latest version of C+ should do the trick though.
Skyfire says:
October 23,2005 at 23:24
I have the right version, but I don't know where the next step is after uploading my data. If it's supposed to appear on the page right after I uploaded, it isn't there.
Rollie says:
October 23,2005 at 23:46
Yes, you should see something along the lines that profile data was detected and to click a link to process it. You might email me your /SavedVariables/CensusPlus.lua file and let me see what's up.

Now I also know why my censusplus numbers weren't updating. :roll:
Skyfire says:

While I'm at it, and since I can't edit my posts (you are welcome to delete the others), I had a few questions:

1) When will we be able to view the rest of our Character Screen, i.e. our Skills and our Talents tabs?

2) Do you ever plan to implement something such as the amount of crit a caster receives from Gear, Int, and Base Crit (also talents maybe?)? Or the amount of plus to magical spells and effects? These aren't currently in the game, and whilst it isn't exactly difficult to figure out these numbers, it would be a nice to see all the numbers right in front of me.

All I can say is someday, hehe. My main concern was gear for the moment, but I do want to add in those other areas of character data.

I'll have to see if there is a reliable way I can manage this. It would entail parsing of item descriptions as the text of an item is all that is stored, not all the individual properties of an item. It might be doable though and would be a nice addition!

But have you submitted a census?

To use the Char. Profiler you must have submitted a census with the character you claimed.

It will only be there once you are logged in and have claimed that character.

It would be funny if I claimed all of my lvl 1 characters that I made just to run C+ :mrgreen:
NiennaMiriel says:
November 2,2005 at 17:54
I'm quite excited about the ability to customize my profile with CSS. I know it's not available yet, but I'm so looking foward to it, that I want to play with it ahead of time.

Just how customizable are they going to be? Can we create a *.css file that we can upload/link to for our profiles? Will we have a text box that we can enter CSS into that will overwrite the style info that you have hard coded into the page? I assume that there's not going to be a form where you just enter information, since that wouldn't require any CSS knowledge, and you mentioned that in the post.

Basically, I'm just wondering how it's going to be implemented when it does get implemented so that I can be all ready to jump on it when I get the go ahead. ;)
Rollie says:
November 2,2005 at 19:22
So I need to spend some time with this. Basically, what I am thinking is that I will allow you to upload a css file that defines all the named ID's. You can currently see what is available by viewing the source of the profile page. All the named ID's at the top of the page can be defined.
Hybuir says:
November 2,2005 at 19:48
So if you claim a char then it gets the associated css. sweetness. Even better than [url=http://myspace.com/juniord]myspace[/url]
NiennaMiriel says:
November 2,2005 at 20:25
So that means I'll be able to do something like this. YAY!

Seems like the profile-system is totally b0rked atm. I uploaded my profiles and they all just point to the profile frontpage, and when I press Rollie's profile I get a profile where all the stats are 0...

Any ETA on a fix?
Hybuir says:
November 8,2005 at 11:14
I get that too.
But here's an easy work around:
My Characters > Click on Character name > click Character Profile on left hand side.
erypmav says:
November 8,2005 at 11:15
When did you upload your profiles? When I started it took a few days for them to show up on the website.
erypmav says:
November 8,2005 at 11:16
Ok, I just went to my character profile [url]http://www.warcraftrealms.com/profile.php?charid=13238268[/url] and all my stats are at zero :(
Bishamon says:
November 8,2005 at 11:30
My profiles are ok now. Stupid me, forgot to un-hide them.

But the DPS-calk is bugged on two of my characters.

[code:1:30337d7a1e]Damage: -1.#IND - -1.#IND|cffff2020 x0%|r
Damage per Second: -1.$[/code:1:30337d7a1e]

The only difference between my three characters is that the one that is correct has a staff AND wand, the others only have a Staff/2h Axe.. Seems it breaks when the ranged-slot is empty.

The addon "Titan ItemBonuses" within "Titan panel" (continued version with 2 panels and so on) calculates this well, and has most things I think. Unsure about the crit. Possibly + from items but not the total. However it should be easy to calculate.. base crit + talents + per # int / agi + items (no ones that are "on use")


Very exited about styling my profile with CSS, and it looks like you've marked up everything one can need with ID's. Get crackin' on upload with UU. And when (yes, when, not if. ho ho ho) you make the tradeskill info and such make sure you read the info from as close to the root of it so that addons do not mess the reading up, which is the case of other character profiling services out there. :-/

First there was Census+, then there was the signature images, and now ... Character Profiles! Warcraft Realms is going from strength to strength. Thank you! :D

One thing I noticed is that my chars [url=http://www.warcraftrealms.com/profile.php?charid=9421658]Akonite[/url] (on EU-Drangonblight, two poinard and a bow), [url=http://www.warcraftrealms.com/profile.php?charid=15981385]Eledriall[/url] (on EU-Earthen Ring, two handed staff and wand) and [url=http://www.warcraftrealms.com/profile.php?charid=13606383]Zotboom[/url] (on EU-Thunderhorn, two handed staff and wand) have odd damage info for melee and ranged:

Melee Damage
Main Hand
Attack Speed (seconds): 0.00
Damage: nan - nan|cffff2020 x0%|r
Damage per Second: nan

Ranged Damage
Ranged
Attack Speed (seconds): 0.00
Damage: nan - nan|cffff2020 x0%|r
Damage per Second: nan

Where as [url=http://www.warcraftrealms.com/profile.php?charid=8540013]Oak[/url] (on EU-Draenor, two handed staff) has sensible damage for melee:

Melee Damage
Main Hand
Attack Speed (seconds): 2.43
Damage: 55 - 76
Damage per Second: 26.9

This seems to be the opposite to the behaviour that Bishamon reported earlier. Any indication what the problem might be?

Hello Emily!

I am also a Mac user.

Download the zip file and use something like Stuffit Expander or just try double clicking the zip to see if it'll be decompressed by the system level tools. It ought to decompress to a folder called CensusPlus.

Now find where your copy of WoW is installed and look for a folder called "Interface" - there should be a folder inside that called Addons - drag and drop the CensusPlus folder into that Addons folder.

Run WoW.

Tinker with the mod settings.

I still got no way to un-hilde the Profile for http://www.warcraftrealms.com/char/14704726 .. The option doesn't appear (and I've uploaded the Census data several times, including the special profile data). :?

Works fine for my other chars, like http://www.warcraftrealms.com/char/11976289.

Only makes sense that my primary, most updated, char is the bugged one :wink:
Rollie says:
December 26,2005 at 17:18
Katheen -

Please start a new thread in the bugs forum for that. Also, when you upload, in order for it to process the profile data, you have to click the optional link after you upload. What is the output you see after you hit that link? Please put your response in a new thread in the bugs forum.

Rollie,

I've been updating my profile, but it doesn't seem to be taking. I run a census usually 2-3 times a night. But my profile for [url]http://www.warcraftrealms.com/profile/18706325[/url] doesn't seem to be updating. I haven't worn the chapue in several levels, i've been wearing the Bad Mojo mask. The last week or so it doesn't seem to want to update. Yes, i make sure that i'm logged in before submitting.

Thanks for any help. Great work with the site and mod, I love it.
