Oh wow, I never saw that when it was live. Why did they get rid of it?

I'm guessing it was because of the old site revamp (what we currently have now) and having to go back and re-do everything.

Yeah! That map was cool. I don't think it got much traffic though. Having an updated map is one of those wishlist items, but the info is already out there on fansites and such, and even a lot of that info is in-game now compared to back then, not to mention quest flow and getting around is far more intuitive, so it's not a particularly high priority.

Wow, first blue post! Yeah, I would rarely use it for actually trying to find things, but that music track that plays is pretty cool...

Would it be possible to put thinks like a repair vendor icon or innkeeper icon in the in-game map?

I believe there are some addons that do that. If it were something a lot of people found useful I'm sure we'd considering adding it. We're fine with some options and additions being made available through addons and not as a core feature of the game.

Ahh I suddenly miss the old forums.

I miss them all the time.

For the color scheme mostly. This orange-brown and off white thing just does not make my eyes happy.

Not sure if anyone has mentioned it yet, but WoWhead has a map which is very similar, and it shows the locations of all collectable pets in all zones! I spent a good hour last night playing with this.

I miss the statistics from the old community site, it was cool seeing which mobs and bosses were killing players the most as well as tons of other stuff.

They used to have a really cool stats page on the website where you could see the mot killed mob of the week, the mob that had killed the most players that week, most crafted item etc, does that still exist? I've looked for it a few times to no avail

Edit: guess it pays to read the whole thread first as someone already mentioned it lol
