    Petee - the only complaint I have about your site is that it has perhaps TOO much information - I'm thinking about quests in particular.
    By now there have been so many holiday quests, and so many resultant repeatable holiday quests, that it's difficult and time-consuming to look through them all for the one you need - since they're all titled 'repeatable quest' or 'repeatable holiday quest'.

    I understand there are space constraints where for some of them, at least, you couldn't include the name of the holiday in the quest's title - but is it possible to mark them with a distinguishing icon that shows which holiday the quest is for? Like a Christmas tree for Christmas, a turkey for Thanksgiving, an egg for Easter, etc. That way it would be a lot easier to find the Day of the Dead repeatable, for example, I was looking for a few days ago.

    That's my only "complaint" - keep up the good work!

    That isn't a problem of TW-DB but of Inno because Inno is giving these useless quest names. TW-DB is taking the names of the quest out of the database only.

    I didn't think I worded my post in any way that could be construed as placing blame on anybody. All I'm asking is if it's possible to put markers on the quests NOT in the Inno database, but on the tw-db website, in order to help us narrow down our search for the right "Repeatable Quest".

    tbh, I kinda thought tw-db was on the back burner for Petee & Co. They will update or not depending upon their workload.

    Anything is possible as long as we have the right person to update the website. Allow me to remind you that TWDB is not affiliated with InnoGames and it is a completely fan (not sure if anymore)-made site. They don't have access to our databases. They just make use of several "tools" to grab the required information and publish it.
    It is and if you've been following the past 2 pages you'll see me mentioning the fact that Petee's been MIA for a while and I had to scout him and "force" him to update the site :p.

    I know that TW-DB, and by extension cloth-calc, isn't regularly updated, but I noticed something with the current update from today.

    Seems in some cases, best gear isn't good enough for the points cloth-calc says you should get: http://prntscr.com/dff9oj

    And since cloth-calc and TW-DB are created by the same folks (I think?), it is odd that the site calculator doesn't match up to cloth-calc: http://prntscr.com/dffaus

    However, even with the discrepancies, I will give props to the fact that it is STILL usually more accurate than the in-game calculator :) http://prntscr.com/dffbp7

    Keep up the good work on it when you folks can, but look into coordinating the two calculators and making them more accurate if possible :)

    I still won't use it for ff, speed gear, regen gear or ff damage gear.

    It isn't accurate at all for those since it is still not able to pick upgraded items(website calc) and never deem a venom snake as usable for ff.

    To be fair, it's impossible to get a "best" FF gear... It depends on your fighting style, and the gear/styles of the people around you... I view cloth calc as just a general guide for FFing.
    I agree there is a bug in clothcalc for speed (and some jobs), though...

    I don't think I've had a problem with regen, though

    It is back on now. Don't know if it was a glitch or Petee's Mastercard was overdrawn and the bill didn't get paid :)

    Brings up a good point though. Many players were really freaking out about it being down, really is a tool alot of us use daily.

    Perhaps now would be a good time to make a donation to help support the site.

    Click on Support on the left side then scroll down to donate.

    PS: it's in £, currently 1 British Pound equals 1.24 US Dollar

    Thanks to everyone for reporting the issue. Yes, the domain expired, abedy said he didn't receive any notification of impeding expiration, but he promptly extended it. It should be working for everyone by now, but it may depend on some local caching.

    I also just updated the site with new items. Thanks to everyone for patience and thank you Iam for suggesting the donation - it's nice of you, but I assure you this downtime wasn't an issue of money, just a little negligence on our part.
