We’ve just updated the database to be in line with the March Release, adding in a few new ship skins and the SOE rewards(clothing, boosters, etc), for what I saw while doing the update.
Also, it seems there might be some light at the end of the tunnel– EMDR has begun receiving uploads again from someone who has coded a CREST trawler than feeds this data to EMDR(and therefore to us). We’ve reached out to this person to offer them our support, both technical and otherwise, so here’s hoping this brings us back up to operational status. Further updates to follow, in either case.
What’s the Problem?
After some investigation over the past few days, we can confidently say that the issue lies with Eve Market Data Relay(EMDR), the source of all of our data and the repository of EveMon market uploads. As far as I can tell, EMDR isn’t getting any uploads either, so it could be EveMon has stopped uploading, which is something they’ve been planning for v3 at any rate.
Our percentage of current market coverage– can you spot where we lost our feed?
What’s Being Done
As I mentioned in the previous post, we were planning on migrating to a CREST-based system eventually anyways, just not so soon. This means that for the next little while, the site will be getting no new data as we take this time to implement CREST API calls in place of EMDR feeds. We currently have no ETA on when this will be complete, but will continue to post updates on this blog as to our progress.
How Can You Help?
We will also be taking this opportunity to rework, streamline, and add features to the site in order to provide efficient, useful tools to make your life that little bit easier. In order to best do this, we’d really appreciate hearing about what and how you use the site, the tools you found indispensable, and the ones that left you scratching your head. To that end, we’ve put together a brief survey that we’d really appreciate you taking a few moments to fill out so we can get an idea of where to focus our efforts over this development period. You can find it here:
We’re sorry for any inconvenience this might cause you, our users, and we will make every attempt to bring back eve-marketdata.com as soon as is possible.
The Eve-MarketData Team
We’re now aware of the issues with the with prices updating really slow or not at all and are working to rectify that. Please bear with us and we’ll update once we have a solution.
It seems to be an issue with the Eve Market Data Relay, as other sites that make use of that data feed seem to have the same aged data. I’ve sent an email off to Greg Taylor to see if that’s the case and will update this again when I hear back.
It has been our plan to move over to CREST in the near future, but that future may now be much nearer.
