The Petnome Project

Ah what to say about the Petnome Project? It was created by the brilliant Kevin BattleBlood. It's a database designed to track abilities in pets. This project will help the community so much! By looking at this database we will be able to determine:

  • What pets we want to farm for
  • What pets we want to level
  • What pets we want to hatch an egg with
  • What pets we want to race in the derby
  • What pets we want to battle with

"Ewwww, 'database' sounds hard!" Actually it's fairly simple. There are only three data related questions that you have to type, the rest are multiple choice. Then your name and email. That's it! You don't even have to remember anything, just bring up the game in a window and copy the data into the form!

(Parents, this would be a great way to teach your kids a little practical knowledge on databases without boring them to death! Heck you don't even have to get into the Mendel-like theories of hatching!)

"But I have a ton of pets. Entering them all will take forEVER!" Okay then just enter when your pet levels up and you get new talents and derby skills. It's not a lot but if everyone who plays Wizard101 did entered those talents into the database every time a pet leveled up, we would be so far ahead!

Friendly and Kevin have teamed up and are now holding a little contest if you enter data. Gobbler pets are prizes! But if you beat me for the prize, I'll whup you at Derby. Just sayin'. :P

So what are you waiting for? Go enter data! PETNOME FOR THE WIN!!!
