Hello Ironwoman, thanks for bringing it up for discussion on the wiki. I was looking into this briefly yesterday and this morning. Both this site that you linked and Mabinoger hide the logic for computing their dailies in server-side code (unlike other timers we've had, which had them in JavaScript so everyone could see how to compute them). It's in theory possible for us to do something to use the Korean site's code, but it requires more than just JavaScript (a proxy server to retrieve the data, basically, because JavaScript security probably won't allow the browser to fetch it).

If you understand the pattern, I would like to hear more about it. I doubt it is a cycle of any reasonably short length. It's more likely some sort of RNG, but I don't think existing timer solutions have fit the data before. The fact that they bother to hide the actual algorithm is evidence of that.

Why exactly would you not be able to utilize their api? Common.js would allow you to retrieve external data, would it not?

You can't make cross-domain AJAX requests without CORS or script tag injection.

Edit: Oops, I didn't look closely enough. Their API does in fact support CORS. However, I'm not sure I want to send increased amounts of traffic to them like that. I would have to ask first. Has anyone ever spoken to them? Do they speak English?

If anyone want to send a message, I can translate it.

Also, I'm pretty sure they speak good enough English.

I sent them an email a little bit ago before I saw your message. If I get no reply, we can try Korean.

We have the go ahead to use their data now.
