ManiaHome Feed

Post by zocka » 04 Jan 2013, 14:42

I could imagine, the ManiaHome concept could be used quite a lot more if there would be some more possibilities to retrieve data from maniahome. Some method like ManiaHome::getPosts($manialink, $offset = 0, $length = 5) returning date, message, icon and a link to the post on maniahome (the page where you can comment on the post) would make it possible to display some kind of "latest posts" on a manialink, maybe even replacing an individual news system of the manialink. I think this would bring a reason for players to favorize a manialink (when they see, what content is usually posted by this manialink) and on the other hand ManiaHome would become more interesting. I think the most players will mainly see notifications about buddies, beeing now friend with someone they don´t know. This flood of almost only messages like this is - I think not only for me - not a convincing reason to really use ManiaHome by the means of it´s possibilities.

Could anyone else imagine something like this being useful? :D

I don't think that it will be ported to Forever web services, but I plan to add this to ManiaPlanet WS.

Do you will something do for TMUF with maniahome in the future or do you target "only" for maniaplanet?

For obvious reasons we are focusing on ManiaPlanet right now.

Nice to hear, that we will see something like this in ManiaPlanet, but none the less I think it´s a little bit waste of potential of ManiaHome. Isn´t it more or less just the output of a single query to your database? : 3

More seriously, not it's not as simple as one query ;)
