Nice to see FatBuddha (you spelt his name wrong lol) assisted as did Eljer and Lytjohan, plus others.  Glad to see you didnt go the information overload route that Mentat has, keeping it simple.  Good search system.

Well Techno, don't go overboard or even bananas in saying how you feel about one of our most ridiculed BFG employees doing something good for the game.....
 Thanks indeed!

I appreciate that thanks but I need to reiterate that this is NOT an official Blue Frog Gaming product and it is maintained entirely by myself without support from Blue Frog Gaming. Therefore, it is subject to the same perils as any other parser that is out there (the server could crash, the script could stop working, etc.). However, I'll work to keep that from happening.

Is it possible to make it run with Facebook, too?

Probably, but that would likely require me to split the parser in to multiple versions which is something I don't really want to do. Why not play on the standalone site where you don't have to deal with all of the additional Facebook stuff slowing the game down.

May I ask the reasoning behind making the parser results available to players that aren't running the parser? I'm just curious, coz every single other parser requires participation to get the info.

Because I find the requirement arbitrary and annoying. Nothing about the other databases requires you to contribute to use them. It only requires that you activate the parser long enough to get a cookie to connect to the database site before searching.

The script will now work for users playing via Facebook (and for SDE - Syfygames.com and Kongregate)! You can grab the latest copy of the script from here.

Players currently using the script do not need to update.

Hi Matt, I dont use parsers often so dont really know my way around them. But occasionally, I get a message saying something like "information not found" on certain planets, but if i check another one, all is fine. Any thoughts?

If you're click the O!, some players with ' in their name causes the links to break in game. You can grab the newest copy of the script off the server and see if it fixes that problem for you. I just haven't forced an update on all users yet because the fixes I've put in are pretty minor so far.
