EDDN feed fix applied

Hi Commanders, I'm sorry that this fix took so long I've been buried in work and unable to spend time on the site this week. You will have no doubt noticed that the stock levels weren't feeding correctly through EDDN. I've finally had some time to look into the code and work out where the issue was. Thank you to those of you who took the time to contact me about it.

Stock levels will now be correctly stored in the database again.

There is another bug I'm trying to track down with regards to getting rank up's from doing updates via EDDN. Hopefully I'll track that down over the weekend and be able to apply the fix during off peak times in the week.

Fly safe,
Cmdr Thrudd

EDDN reconnected

Hi Commanders, I've updated the site to connect to the new version of the EDDN network so things should be feeding again correctly. I'll be monitoring it over the next few days to watch for any weirdness that might have crept in with the update.

Fly safe,
Cmdr Thrudd

Beta & Upcoming EDMC Changes

Hi folks, I hope those of you with beta access are enjoying the latest patch. There will no doubt be some changes I'll need to do to the site but I wont know until later this week when I'm able to get on and have a look myself.

There are some changes coming very soon to how the EDMC communicates data with the trade sites that I'll have to implement. Hopefully I'll get that done in the next couple of days but I wanted to warn you all that there may be a little disruption.

Fly safe,
Cmdr Thrudd


How is the data gathered?

All data is gathered by members of the community and entered manually through an admin interface on the site, by uploading a csv of data gathered by using OCR tools or by using the EDDN network via ED Market Connector.

To upload CSV data you need to have reached Competent rank on my site but using the site or updating prices. See the list below.

How can I contribute?

Access to the site is gained through registering and using the site. New users can query existing data after a few searches they can unlock the ability to edit prices and later adding editing stations and systems. Sending me a nicely worded email also works. ;)
