Status Defunct is a fansite that specializes in providing facts, historical data, and trends in the population of the World of Warcraft realms and their players' classes, races, and guilds — and how these change over time. These contributions are player submitted and gathered with the use of various Addons. This data can be viewed by server (realm), faction, class, race, guild, or even level. It is also regularly maintained and updated with new and improved features and data analysis. Rollie is the owner and developer of the CensusPlus AddOn, which is an extension of the original mod by Ian Pieragostini. was privately owned and had no ties to the gold/account/item selling enterprise sites whose ads were necessary to pay for the servers. As of June 13, 2008, the site has officially gone gold free.

Since November 2019, the site since had issues and never really picked up on fixing its interface issues.[1] Since around 26 January 2023, the site now redirects to a sister site of Warcraft Tavern and is no longer available.

Data collection and upload[]


Census+ in-game.

Data is collected by the Warcraft CensusPlus UI mod, which can be downloaded here. The mod essentially crawls the /who data of people online when you take the census. Additional Battleground related data is collected by the Killing Fields mod, a feature only available for US realms.

After you have taken a Census from within the game, the data is saved to your UI variables folder. You must upload this file to the website for processing. Once the file has been uploaded, it is placed in a queue to be processed and the data is added to the database for display!

Uses of the data[] does offer a variety of game based data. Realm data, both in the US and EU servers, are reflected in the form of realm conception dates, timezone, type (PvP/PvE/RP/etc), faction population, faction ratios, and total realm population. Additionally, it has the ability for guilds to enter their guild progression, links to their website, and [recently added] image album.

One of the common form of using the website is via the Character History which guilds use to gauge an applicant's playing styles through comparison of how quickly they leveled or seeing how loyal the player is by checking their previous guild history.

Once signed up to the website, a player can claim their character and hide their history, in which the message The owner of this character has requested that the history be hidden will be displayed. Additionally, the profile can display a biography, user submitted images, and recent battlegrounds (via the Killing Fields mod). The Character History does have a comment box in which people can leave messages in regards the player character. These comments can be deleted by the owner once the character has been claimed.

Another form of use of the character data is in the form of signature, most commonly used on message boards. These can be made first by claiming your character and then choosing from a wide selection of fonts, font sizes, colors, display options, and even backgrounds. Additional customization can be made by using, a site run by the same administrator, Rollie, that enables the user to take artistic control of their signature.

WoW Census[]

The WoW Census shows the total number of players in each faction, per each race, and per each class who self-report via the CensusPlus AddOn, which scans players around the mod's player character. The Census only includes characters that are level 10 or higher and that have been active within the past 30 days.
