    The EQ2U website (Census) is no longer working. Here’s the message from

    As of 8:20pm PST, Daybreak Games have redirected to This change prevents Census from working for EverQuest II, DC Universe Online, and Planetside 2.”

    I apologize if this isn’t the right forum, but I wanted to bring this issue to the Dev’s attention. I use this website a lot and really like having all that data available.

    I have a suggestion to The Great Overlords of Darkpaw Bring back the Puplic Cenus to your website Like the Great company S.O.E. did that way we are paying you guys for the info anyways, and no need for outside Private Sector Doing it. If you guys feel generous enough to do so.

    I came here to report the same thing & so liked your post.

    This is a serious problem, I use EQ2ui ALL the time! Please fix this community fansite ASAP. Thank you.

    The community at large uses the information on there.

    I am aware that EQ2U is a "fan site" not run by DBG/Darkpaw. It does offer game information in exceedingly useful formats. Please restore census as fast as possible so that fansite can continue to support Everquest II players.

    I suspect it was an unintended change and I hopefully it will get corrected.

    To a minor degree this even effects your own launcher. It will no longer populate the last character you were on nor the list of characters you have.

    To explain my thoughts. All the time i try to catch the Leader from "Schicksalsnova". It seems he doesn't play eq2 now. But i try to catch him with the "Last Login time stamp" in eq2wire.


    Because my son in the age of 9 (14 years ago) gave this guild the name. So i try to catch the Guildleader to save the guild and this name from the void. ;) Thats only one of many examples how i use eq2wire and finally census.

    This census thing is very emotional.

    Oh My Gosh! Please remedy this error ASAP! Census is not only used by EQ2U by many, many, many players, it is also used by other fan sites and personal sites.

    Please consider the number of players in this game alone who have more than 50 characters. Census, especially on EQ2U, is HOW they keep track of the characters items.

    Also please consider the number of alternate to default UI settings, developed by players, available for players use.

    Not sure what barfed in the code but it should be easily and rapidly fixed.

    Many thanks in advance

    Census was shut down due to a back end issue that our Platform team is working on, we'll have it back up asap.

    I use the quest tracker on census to see what I have/have not done, and also to update the wikia as I go along. Without the tracker, this is a guessing game. Please fix!

    ETA Caith posted just before I hit post, so yay.

    (1) Everybody, please be sure to upvote the original post. That affects how they gauge the interest in an issue.

    (2) EQ2 Wire isn't the only fan site that relies on Census. The wiki does, too.
