    Is there any available source for Bluetracker Api (Blizzard Blue Tracker Api)?

    Blizzard Blue Tracker Api - Tracks down latest posts from Blizzard Workers (Forumers).

    Assuming there's nothing readily available, based on the lack of replies, what's keeping you from writing one?

    Get the main forum page, filter out all "blue post" links, get those threads, filter out the blue posts, along with the "next blue post" links, store posts in db, repeat with "next" links.


    With a (rather large) bit of curl, sqlite, xpath, ... should be doable.

    Chances are, theres a reason there isn't one. I'd bet that if you constantly "bot" on the forums, it either gives a CAPCHA or just flat out bans you. Most big companies do that with their forums.

    Well, I have one running here (local only) that's been up for some 4 weeks now, and it works just fine.

    Did you know:
    Of the 227 "EU technical support" blues I have, 167 are by the same guy? (Krinskal)

    Or that "US tech support" has only 2 / 3 of the EU amount of posts, and yet there's 9 US posters but only 6 EU posters?


    Pointless trivia really :D


    Then again, http://eu.battle.net/sc2/en/forum/blizztracker/ might already be all you need.
