    I found out about WildStar last week and I wanted as much information as I could get as quickly as I could get it. So I made WildScrape. Its a great one stop overview of whats going on with WildStar. It's fun to watch the information spread around. I hope that it will be a good tool for the community.

    It is in a beta mode and probably wont be able to handle a ton of traffic. If people start using it I will push up the power on the backend.

    I haven't seen a page designed like this before. It's really cool to have everything right there, like a command station... and it's the first webpage I can effectively spread horizontally across two monitors. :p

    Great concept.

    Obviously could use some polishing. Looking forward to seeing what you do with it through the beta phase.

    Thanks everyone! In regards to WildScrapes usefulness - I'm glad people agree it's a neat way to find out about wildstar. In regards to its style - I have kind of been looking at its 'no fluff' interface as a good thing.

    no?

    Looks like reddit agrees with you.

    That is a very wide web site. I need a horizontal mouse scroll wheel.

    My OCD kicked in and I had to close the page.

    That is a metric ton of information all in one place.

    I'm sure once the polish goes on it'll not make me cry tears of wanting to organize everything into boxes :p

    Great work! Good luck with the site!

    @Blankspace: It might still make your OCD go crazy. I am planning on putting in a way to favorite streams and organize them the way you want. But they will still look like that I think. Unless I get a ton of feed back saying to change it.

    I added the 'Planet Nexus Podcast' to the wildscrape.

    We had a crash last night when these forums went down. My site was looking for these forums and got all butt hurt when it couldn't find them. I showed it how to handle loss tho and that wont be a problem any more.

    Sorry for causing any issues :) First downtime we've had in 2+ years so it'll hopefully not be a common error for you!

    WildScrape is now requesting stream suggestions! If you know of any WildStar sites that aren't being featured on WildScrape please let me know and I will try to start sending traffic their way. Just click 'Suggest a stream!' at the top left and let me know whats missing!

    P.S. I am now wildly scraping The Elder Scrolls Online as well with more games to come.

    That design is really bad. Sorry.

    The colors are a terrible combination and scrolling in two directions is a huge UX no-no.

    The site content and idea itself seems very interesting. Clean up how the data is presented and you could have a serious winner on your hands.

    I like it a lot. Since it's an aggregator, the design works well -- I'd much rather have content than pretty graphics. Love the dark background.

    My only suggestions would be a couple more pixels between the columns, and some sort of navigation arrow for those without a side-scrolling mouse.

    Looks fine to me but I think it could use some more tweaking. A visible column divider perhaps? Maybe freeze pane so when you scroll down the headers stays visible?
