Better use of data

I was just looking at the Attacks tables. I fixed the rest of the tables to be sortable, but I really feel like there needs to be a better way to search them. For example, I would like to be able to search for Cantrips that used the Mage Staff and had the Volatile keyword.

I'm really a data guy at heart, so my first instinct is to get the spreadsheets broken down and put into a normalized database. After that, I'm really not sure what tools are available to access that data, though.

I'm sure I could get up to speed on wikis, but it would probably take me about 6 weeks on my own, and that's if I had the time to spend a few hours every day on it. I'm not sure if this is possible, but I think I could really kickstart the whole thing if I could get in voice chat with one of the admins. I'm not even sure this message is going to be obvious to y'all, but if it is, please let me know if this is something you'd be willing to do, and when a good time would be.

TeamSpeak would work best for me, and our server address is atl01.mainvoice.net:7183. Any time today works, or maybe Wednesday evening if that's better for you.

As far as I know there's no way to integrate SQL databases or other tools of sorting data into the mediawiki framework. If that's something you want to see implemented here, you'll likely need to research it and figure out what needs to happen on your own. We tend to use Skype for chats, which either Aeakett or I can try to make work. Not quite sure what nights this week work for me.

I'm in the Central time zone. It may be that I need to build a web application on our site to do what I want.
Building an extension that we can port into the wiki would be ideal, so you might want to look at existing mediawiki extensions and a) see if one already exists for what you want to do and b) familiarize yourself with how extensions work so you can build one within the constraints of the system. Aeakett is likely the best one to talk to about getting extensions added to this wiki, as he's much more adept with the wiki backend than I am.—Paizo Publishing, LLC.png Yoda8myhead (talk) 04:21, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
