    http://bitserver.ourspace.ch/static/ridi

    it was gone for a while, but now, upon lots of requests... it's back. subscribe to this thread to get notified of updates. feedback welcome. if anything stops working, let me know (contact form on the site).

    it also has a little api so can you pull the data into your own website for example.

    greetings

    Neat, someone was looking for this the other week.

    2 bugs:

    1) Searching with a shardname ("Flashwit@Deepwood") times out ("The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading."). Since character names are only unique per shard, it would be great to be able to specify shard.
    2) Sometimes the data for the first is not shown despite the header being there. For example if you search for Flashwit and expand "Nightmare I: Proesyth", there's no Flashwit in the results. But there is for Trial By Fire.

    thanks for reporting! gonna look into this as soon as i can.

    1) is my fault. i really thought they are globally unique because i had to change my player name when i changed a shard once. boo ;)
    2) never run into this one as far as i remember. but i'll stress-test a bit more now. i see what you mean when i load "Flashwit" tho.

    * i also could increase the update rate. for example every 2 days or so. every day is a bit overkill.

    enjoy!

    Yep; you had to change when transferring because someone on that shard already had your name, but if you didn't transfer you both could have kept the name on your respective shards.

    WOAH!!

    This is great stuff. Seriously, this is something Trion should have get done actually.
    As someone who joined game in Nightmare Tide when RiftHead went down (the only thing that tracked discoveries) I was wondering where the hell I can find list of my discoveries.

    /clap for this. Great stuff!

    thanks guys for the feedback again.

    thinking about to move the whole thing to a faster server as more people are starting to use this. anyway, i first re-code the backend for that i guess. also, the ui isn't that cool to use i heard.

    i'll post here if the url changes or something like that.

    small update: trying to fetch new data now every 3 days.

    until then, have fun

    A nifty site, the Adventures section of the forums would benefit greatly from knowing this.

    Cheers for the dedication and OhEmGee on that URL name...

    I only have two issues with the UI:
    1) The non-bold font ("enter a player name..." and lists of achievements) could be easier to read (I'm using FF 31.4 on RHEL 6.5 atm). The bolded lines are fine.
    2) The black text is very hard to read on that background.
    Other than that I'm fine with it.

    One more suggestion is to allow searching by guild@shard, too, so guilds can list all their firsts.

    (I wrote a parser, but not a UI, for this in Perl)

    The only suggestion I have is to change the name of url.

    bitserver.hacked isn't really attractive.

    yes i'm sorry for this. i know it sucks when something disappears. many people sent me mails, so i brought back the API. that should be enough for those who want to display the data on their own sites. same address as before but the API changed. new examples are on the site.

    http://bitserver.hacked.jp/static/ridi

    i tried to implement your requests in this last version. like shard name and so on. should be useful now for most use cases. optionally you can cache the results on your side for faster request times. i will polish it a bit more and add some more examples.

    if anything stops working, let me know (contact form on the site).
    will post updates to this thread.

    greetings

    updated...

    Code:
    2015-03-20:
    - added caching of client requests.
    - results are now minified to save some bandwidth.
    - removed parameter 'do'.
    - polished the index page.
