    Facebook app.

    Not sure if this has been mentioned before, but why not have a Facebook app that links in with the my.lotro API? This way we can broadcast updates to our friends and perhaps draw some prospective new players. It could be made so we can select which characters and what kind of updates are broadcast, but I imagine it to be something like the character log on the my.lotro character profile.
    So when I level up a character, on Facebook it could say '[name] Has reached level 75 on his Lore-master in the Lord of the Rings Online'.
    Shouldn't be too hard and would be tonnes of free publicity.

    Depends on whether WB would want to fund it. You have to remember that every development idea gets these two questions from a suit:

    (1) How much is this gonna cost us?

    and

    (2) How much will we make out of it?

    Unless the answer to (1) is significantly lower than (2), it won't happen.

    Yeah, there used to be a LOTRO Facebook app pretty much like that. It would post "[name] is now playing LOTRO." when you logged into the game, and when you logged out it would make a post saying something along the lines of what character you played on, how many levels you gained, how many quests you completed, etc. I think it was supposed to have some other features, but they didn't work or something. They disabled it for a bit because of some problems, then it kind of just disappeared with no announcement.
