Unless I'm missing something these forums currently have the Vanilla Forums API disabled. http://blog.vanillaforums.com/api/
Enabling the Public API it will allow people to make things like writing forum apps and mobile clients a lot easier.
On PWI forums I run a popular forum app called "Sweetiebot" that provides the community with some valuable services like
- Displaying PWI server status
- Analyses user posting habits
- Tracking promo codes
- Providing links to patches
- Provides entertainment
She is the most popular member of the forums and you can currently see some of her threads here:http://pwi-forum.perfectworld.com/showthread.php?t=1566451
- Usage / FAQhttp://pwi-forum.perfectworld.com/showthread.php?t=1585581
- Pack Opening Simulatorhttp://pwi-forum.perfectworld.com/showthread.php?t=1568051
- Top Poster Trackerhttp://pwi-forum.perfectworld.com/showthread.php?t=1736741
- Promo Code Tracker
The thing is the PWI forums are scheduled for demolition so Sweetiebot will either have to be ported or die. Enabling the API would make porting her over to vanilla forums a lot more feasible. She might even be able to provide service to other PWE games if that is done.
