Hi everyone. Please excuse the first post, i'm not just some spam bot here to make life difficult!
A nice way to track (stalk?) your favourite Epic staff members! The custom script scrapes the forums to provide an index of the last 100 forum posts made by Epic staff members. It's a really neat (well, I think it is) way to get a quick overview of the most recent developer activity.
How do I use it?
It's pretty simple. Just visit the Tracker home page to get the most recent list of developer posts. When you find a post that you'd like to read in full detail, hit the "goto" link to return to these forums.
It updates on a rolling user basis. As an average, you may see a lag of up to an hour between a post being made on the forums and it appearing on the tracker - although it'll usually be much much less.
How can I help?
There's two things I need some assistance with:
1st) I need a list of what users to track (ie. a list of the Staff accounts).
The following accounts are being tracked, let me know who i've missed (or if i've accidentally included someone who's not a staff member!):
2nd) Test it and give me feedback! I'd love any feedback, bug reports or feature suggestions you can give.Currently tracked:
Thanks to Comrade John for providing feedback from early-on.

EDIT: This intends to serve a slightly different purpose than the Staff Tracker that Flak's apparently been looking at implementing. From my experience, staff trackers usually just place icons next to threads with staff member posts. Useful at times but still means you need to sift through several forums and threads if you want to know what developers have been saying - EpicTracker gives a one-stop link to quickly get you up to date. Hence, they can both co-exist peacefully to help achieve the same goal in different ways
