how will you be addressing the issue of different prices being offered by different merchants?

The search that is on the site shows the average price of all transactions in the database and the number of price points that it is based on ( volume). Different merchants will sell their goods for differnt prices so that is why its an average. The more data we get from different merchants the more accurate the prices will become. Also the prices are for sales, not just listed prices. Log files are scanned for unusual prices and they will be edited out of the database. I will be implementing an advanced search that will allow searches by date, server, price range, and any others I think of, are suggested. I hope that answers your question. The database has over 1600 price points at present but we will need alot more. How accurate the prices are will ultimalty depend on the community and how many upload their log files to fill the database. I hope that answered your question. SMILEY

Best way you can help is build the database by  uploading  your store log file. Follow the link to do so very quick simple process. And thanks again for visitng and showing your interest. :smileyvery-happy:

Hi all, if you visited the site in the last 2 hours or so you may have been unable to create a user account. I had made some changes to the script that checks the incoming data for being of the correct format and I made an error and it wasn't letting anything through. This has been corrected. This error was pointed out by Tovin, one of the good people over at EQ2 Stratics. Thanks again for the heads up.I will be making further news posts and informational releases such as this over on our boards at the EQ2 Markets Forums.Please visit us there for further updates.There have been some issues with uploading log files in IE. These have been solved. I recommend switching to a better browser like  Firefox .

I increased the upload file size to 500k to better handle the large log files that some have been trying to upload.

1800 new prices in the last 4 days since launch!

Keep the store logs coming! over 200 items with 1800 prices added to the database since we launched. At the present rate, if we get 10 people from each server to send in their log, we will have over 200000 prices and over 19000 items so keep them coming. note: All prices are player submitted. We are not using any third party programs to gather data. posted on may 22 "Hey everyone, thanks again for all the support. We now have over 10000 prices on more than 750 items. I have been undecided but I have made the decision to make the basic searching functions..."  more at the EQ2 Markets forum. Yanau level 12 scout practicing to be a bard.

July 3 2005 : Korky wins June contest and $50! Korky uploaded over 3500 prices in June and drew the lucky number and won the $50 prize for the June contest. We now have over 23000 prices in the database and over 1100 items! Thanks to everyone who helped build this database. As nice as those numbers sound, that leaves a large protion of all the items in unaccounted for. Also, more than half the servers do not have any prices in the database, the communities on runnyeye and guk have been especially active. The server for the database and forums are down at the moment but its being worked on and should be up shortly.
