Welcome to EQ2 Traders Corner! For those of you who are just experiencing tradeskills for the first time, this is the proud "offspring" of EQTraders Corner (EQTC), one of the largest and oldest EQ tradesills sites in the world. Please remember to read the Visitors Corner message board threads before posting in the forums, as there are some rules of the road that guests are asked to follow, not only to keep things focused on tradeskills, but also to cut down on the massive workload involved in maintaining and updating this site.
Niami DenMother ("Mum") - founder/creator of EQTC, this wee redheaded halfling lady is prone to spurts of activity followed by long naps in various people's packs. (Don't forget to leave some chocolate in there for her!)
Ngreth Thergn("The House Ogre") - Mum's RL husband and reason why EQ2TC was born. He has done much of the physical web design for the sites, and while his current job doesn't allow him to do much commentary on the forums, he continues to be the person that keeps Mum balanced ...or at least as balanced as a redhead ever is!
Why Did We Do It?
Originally, given the high cost in time and money of running EQTC, Mum said a flat-out "NO!" when asked about an EQ2 site. However, the House Ogre can be quite convincing when he wishes, so we decided we'd give it a try and hope for the best. Due to multiple changes in tradeskills since launch, though, we're still hopelessly behind on getting all the data in place, but we're persevering.
On the plus side, unlike EQTC, we're starting with a database, instead of trying to transcribe inconsistently-formatted flat files into a database. A goodly portion of the basic structure was borrowed from the EQTC site, though tweaking needed to be done. Additionally, the recipes are available in-game to folks of the proper level/tradeskill class, cutting out a lot of hunting around for recipe hints and so forth.
However, all of those recipes, and the harvest information and so on, still need to be entered, by hand, and while we have volunteers for data entry, it's not only a lot of data to get entered in, but a lot of what we already entered needed to be changed at least once, if not more. (And the ENTIRE recipes database will have to be trashed and re-done once the tradeskill revamp hits in late February 2006, so we've called a halt to adding new stuff for now.
Bear with us, pardon our dust, and we'll get more content in as we're able. In the meantime, browse the How To section of the site, wander the forums, and join us for an exploration of the addiction that is crafting in EQII!
