It looks like you are using Ad Blocking software.
Ads are an important part of what allows this and other sites within the SWTORTools network to continue to run and grow.
I also don't like ads. I use an ad blocker on sites that show full screen ads or ads that may harm my computer. However when there is a site that I want to support, I will either allow ads or donate to them, as long as they don't hurt that trust.
I will never block you from the site or worsen your experience for using an ad blocker. But I do encourage you to either allow ads for my domains, or if you really don't want ads, please consider supporting my work in another way. For example, you can make a donation at SWTORTools Support.
Guides in Reddit Posts
There are a few circumstances that a reddit post will be made with a list of guides.
These are meant to happen with major events in the Game as a single source to find guides that will help a player, regardless of the site the guide was written on.
These posts will show the top 10 ranked guides for the criteria.
Also included will be a link to see all of the guides that match the criteria and links to a few guides to help using the site.
When an in game even starts in SWTOR a post will be made with the top guides with a certain tag.
Currently these tags are:
- bounty contract week
- relics of the gree
- rakghoul resurgence
- nar shaddaa nightlife
Major Game Updates
To account for any information that is currently under NDA, about 2 hours after a major game update goes live there will be a post to reddit with any relevant guides.
If you are not under an NDA, I would encourage you to add your guides as soon as possible.
If you are under an NDA, I would encourage you NOT to even start creating your guide on SWTORData at this time, even if you do not click publish.
I am currently working on ways to safeguard information like that before it is allowed to go live.
This will be a manual process on my part and will not be automated.
I will check to see if there are enough guides to make posting worth it. If there are it will post.
This will run off tags with the following format:
For example. Any guides related to things added in 3.2 should have the tag
Before anything goes to reddit, I will always perform a manual check to see what is about to post.
This includes making sure that no unrelated guides will be added.
If I notice that guides are being tagged that are not actually relevant, in the hopes of generating false traffic to your website, action will be taken.
- I will remove the un-related tags from the guides affected by the post generator
- A flag will be added to your account with a warning
- I will review every post you have made to see if there is a widespread issue or if it was a one time issue
- If to many warnings are applied to your account I will have the ability to give a temporary suspension, remove your ability to post at all, or require approval for every post you make
