Although there are probably also people sad to see the old (some useful, some useless) comments in items and quests gone. There was more to thottbot as just huntar weapon comments. an entire forum and community is missing..deleted.. ... I'm sure we don't need specific posts from anyone to start a war about which site has/had the better comments on certain item pages.. But speaking about posts ... how would any of you like it if your forum posts were all deleted.. and you had to use alakazam's forum on the wowhead page without warning?
or .. I'm pretty sure nobody of the thott community really cares about the quests and items.. sure some comments were awesome but we all know it was harder to filter which patch a comment was from on thottbot.. but some things were according to some people still better on thott despite what anyone here will tell them. If you ask me some info is better on wowwiki.. some things are better about wowjuju and alakazam and etc .. and surely some things are good about wowhead.. everyone uses multiple things to get an answer to what they need to do things in wowthere isn't a one stop site for wow.. and that's not the big deal .. If i can speak for the community I'm pretty sure the crux isn't some specific comment made by the thottbot community somewhere on a quest or item page but in the fact that the flipping forum is gone, the community pulled a rug from under and the "transition" was done horribly. without announcement, no archive and probably a shattered community as result.
NOOOO! YOU ARE RUINING THE NOSTALGIA!
About a Year or More ago a GM informed a friend and I that Thottbot was Run by a Gold Sellers site (Thott bot used to have huge scripts running in the background while you had their page open). I guess this is not the case any more however iv e been a wowhead fan since i discovered it.
For those of us who still continue to use Thottbott.. Will u ever bring back the "Evil twin" Theme that some of us had set as a homepage that won't load now? :( Just wondering.
I Like Thottbot better...much easier to readI like how the quest texts are laid out & the links provided in them.The search engine is much better...allowing for partial text & allowances for misspelled words :)The size of the text is much easier to read. The black on white is much easier to read & causes less eyestrain.I like the margin links as well. I prefer the way the add comments & submit downloads work. Being able to scan over all screens shots in one place. All in all thottbot is waaaaay better Imo. I used it all the time. I really only ever used Wowhead to compare item prices with those on Thottbot to gauge market values for AH. I want my Thottbot back ;(
i cannot believe the #$%^&* bags at thottbot did this to us... Wowhead sucks always have and always will... I will look elsewhere for any info i need.... These 2 sites will be be last on my list.... Fail to both sites....
I'm a bit sad and happy to see this happen. While I use Wowhead to lookup pretty much all info for quests, items, NPCs, etc. I also used Thottbot to lookup old comments to get a feel for what players thought of X back in Vanilla. Mind you, I was not too keen on their layout, and loading a plethora of comments individually was a bit annoying, however seeing all of the opinions from back then was pretty cool. I really wish they would have at least kept an archive of the comments.
I agree with you whole heartedly Sheff! Wowhead is hard to use after you've been using thottbot for so long!
i think thottbot was the best for wow data but now that wowhead has taking over its going to be sh_t and to lock people out of your froums when wowhead fans are saying just as bad or more things about thottbat fan its just plan wrong , wowhead is not clean looking , not fun to use and alot of the info is wrong thottbat is clean looking , user friendly , and info is some times wrong too but the over al feel to thottbat is good so know you wowhead own it you have adds all over the place and things are not working right . so it looks as thottbat will die soon witch sucks
I'm going to start off with my usual, to each is own.Don't come here just to attack Wowhead and why it's so much inferior in your eyes because Thottbot got shut down. It was ZAM's decision. ZAM is the parent site to both Wowhead and Thottbot.Wowhead's data is gathered by an addon that collects information as you play the game and is uploaded to the site. How can this information be incorrect? Bad data issues are few and far between.Again, Wowhead does not own Thottbot; unfortunately for you Thottbot is dead; and to each his own.If you end up less grumpy and want to stay, welcome. If you don't, your first impression didn't leave any reason to miss you.
What enchanting info did you find (or find more easily) before that you can't find now? I want to make the experience better for both sites.
It took me all of 20 minutes to read the Thottbot forums.
Never liked thottbot. Pop-ups, half the comments were retarded, good/useful comments would be downrated and hidden, there website layout looks like some low rent crap and then there forums are the same low rent layout.I can't see why anyone would want to use thottbot over wowhead anyway.
