does anyone else use the gatherer mod...

on my world map for zny zone this stores all the herb locations i've ever visited so i can fly around that zone and target them for a quick fly around...

yesterday it worked fine for some herbing in SB.

today every zone i go to is blank, not a single herb showing up anywhere.

i have just done some herbing in SB and its now adding ones i have just herbed....

BUT i want all my locations of all the millions of herbs i've gathererd in all the zones to come back /cry

anyone help ?

I'll look tonight. I don't often have this addon enabled, unless I know I'm going to actively be looking for herbs.

I use a UI called ArkiveUI. Contained within it are two addons (amongst countless others) - Mapster (a map replacement) and Gathermate (has a database of known herb/mining locations and shows them on both the map and the mini map). They work well and make gathering a breeze. One other addon I use for gathering is called Routes - it allows you to create the best route for visiting all these herb or mining nodes and shows it both on the map and mini map (lines joining all the nodes). These three addons make gathering a breeze and can all be downloaded individually. This doesn't help with your current problem but is at least one possible solution.

Khel, I have the same issue. What operating system do you have?

When I asked Blizz about this, I was told it was a permissions issue because I'm using Vista, and so none of my settings are allowed to be stored. No solution was offered. /shrug If you happen to find a solution, I hope you repost.

I've given up on it for now, lol

I didn't log in last night, ill _will_ check tonight.

I enabled my gatherer mod and the gathererdb mod tonight. No issues. Everything seemed to be in order, but I all I did was fly around ice crown a little bit and log off.

Des, i'm on XP Pro.

tlb : what did you exactly do to exnable your gatherer mod and gatheremod db ?

On Saturday my gatherer was working fine and all the herb spots i've visited are showing on the worldmap for each zone and yet the next day, Sunday, without me altering anything i have a totally blank world map ?

And i'm having to start again....its adding herbs i get again now since sunday and they were still showing last night so it cant be a permission thing ?

I just want to know whats happened to all the data i had previously for Azeroth / Outland and Northrend.

I look quickly on the gatherer web site but nothing there recently to indicate any known issues.

I have the most uptodate version so its not just changed to cause me to lose data etc

/puzzled and confused and fed up

tlb : what did you exactly do to exnable your gatherer mod and gatheremod db ?I just enabled the addon. 90% of the time I don't have all of my addons enabled when I log in. I don't keep quest helper, gatherer, auctioneer, etc. all enabled when I know I'm just gonna raid. You can install addons and not enable them. And the settings are per toon. So, I have auctioneer enabled on my banking alt, but not my main.

So, last night I enabled them and flew around ice crown. Saw the nodes on the map. And logged off.

aha i see.

i dont raid and i have to say my addons are always turned on.

so not turned gather off ever, so i still have a different issue whereby it worked one day and then with no changes afaik it stopped working when i next logged in.

Might want to disable the addon, login, log off, enable addon, log in. This may cause the addon to reset itself. I've done that before with quest helper when it was all wonky (my British 'word of the day').

07-16-2009, 02:46 AM
and a very good British word it is to :)

07-16-2009, 09:30 AM
I work for a UK owned company. Those of us in the states often get a good laugh from some of the words choices. One of my favorites are "wicked" and "tame". They are used to describe project status. If a project is "wicked" we are unsure of the goals and/or the time estimates. If a project is "tame", the project is well defined and the estimates are probably very close to what it will actually take to complete the work.

In US-english, wicked is typically used to describe something that is evil. And tame is equivalent to domesticated (best word I could think of...). Neither of which would be used to described the "status" of a project.

07-16-2009, 11:47 AM
Lol tlb.

indeed - over here young people actually use wicked to describe something that is 'cool' or 'awesome'.

and i guess 'tame' would also be used for something that is a bit boring or unexciting.

can't say i've ever used or heard used wicked or tame for within project management.

Khel, did you end up getting your addons to function properly? I'd be curious to know how you did it, as I'm struggling with the same thing and just gave up after a month or so struggling with trying to get Gatherer to store the information after logging out and just disabled it.

07-17-2009, 09:45 AM
indeed - over here young people actually use wicked to describe something that is 'cool' or 'awesome'.Or the name of a really bad musical. My wife and I actually saw Wicked in London about 2 years ago. Great place, crappy show.

Des - i never recovered my previous database with all the millions of herbs locations on it. it simply started recording them again from last saturday when i had the issue.

tlb : dont know it - although someone on my FB is nuts about it and only everr talks about some woman in it and the show itself.

i love musicals but i guess all the older ones and maybe not some of the new / more way out ones.

glad u enjoyed london.

it simply started recording them again from last saturday when i had the issue.Just get the gathererdb addon and load in all the nodes. It is stupid easy to use.

07-19-2009, 11:14 AM
