Hello Twisted Nether geeks and welcome!
Tonight I’m going to delve into an information gathering site,
This site is primarily a location for finding census data for all the World of Warcraft realms, but there are a couple of other interesting things you can do here. First, lets cover the obvious. Warcraft census data is information about your server population. Are you mostly Horde or Alliance? Are there more pallys or shaman on your server? What level are they? What race? If you have these types of burning questions then this is the place for you! This census data is collected from stalwart heroes like yourself who download the addon CensusPlus, which can be found at Curse.com. You can use this addon realm census data while ingame as well as use it to collect census data and upload it back to the site for others to use.
To find your census data just click on the Realm Data in the toolbar and select WOW Census. Input the server you’re interested in and there you have it. This will also provide a list of guilds on the server. I believe it is based on number of guild members. The pic here to the left is my home server and faction.
This site also provides a couple of other interesting things.
- Feel like you are surrounded by the enemy? See if your server is primarily one faction or the other.If you are looking for the ratio of horde to alliance players based on the number of characters — go to either the US Realm or EU Realm drop down. The list is provided in alpha order.
- There is also a number of random statistics under the Quick Stats section. (hunters still seem to outnumber the rest of us! whats that about?!)
- Poke around the Graphs and you can find all types of interesting random information. Such as the past years average weekly activity by class.
- Interested in making a signature featuring your character to use in your guild forums and on the web? Go to the signature maker. Follow the instructions. You can pick all the colors and select a background and voila! A unique signature you can use all over the place.
- Now I’d like to tell you my favorite thing to do with this site. As a guild leader I’m never sure quite what I’m getting when people apply to the guild. If you are interested in getting some background info try this out. From the Realm Data drop down select Char History (character history). Put in a character name and server and you can get a full history of every guild they have been in.
I hope you find this site as interesting as I do for random but useful information
Until next time friends…go make the world a better place!
