Ideas / change of status report?
« on: 21 March 2010, 16:17:08 »
If I scan (e.g.) galaxy 6... when I am done, is there a quick way I can find what has changed from the previous time I scanned galaxy 6 (who is new, who is gone, active, inactive, vacation, etc.)?

Ideas / way to enter "not" functions...
« on: 03 March 2010, 18:52:54 »
I want to narrow down a list of (example) 100 hits  from a previous scan.

Perhaps you have a way to do this (but if you do, I don't see it).


Example, I have a list of 100 in galaxy 2, and I want to discard some.  I would like to have a way (example) from that list to then *not* see people who are banned.  Then (from that list, now say 90) *not* see anyone on vacation.

Query functions, in other words... maybe even from a "command line".

Problems / who's online idiosyncracies
« on: 03 February 2010, 18:07:54 »
noticed some "counting" irregularities...

that I am listed twice as is my partner (4 online), I know for certain that there is just one of me,  and I am not positive but I do not think my partner (the administrator) is online at all.



I also note that according to where I look, there is either 0 (zero) people in my alliance, or just one, though there are five, and the planets (when I look at the alliance tab) are listed as being in the alliance but there is still (same view) only zero or one person in the alliance.

Ideas / maybe a question or an idea...
« on: 29 January 2010, 19:38:20 »
Is there a way (sorry if it is there and I haven't seen it) to share a minimum amount of information with (for example) another person or alliance without sharing everything... specifically, short of running a bot, it would be hard to populate this database and keep it current with a few members actively engage in the game... that we might tie up with someone else to share the status of individual sectors (and nothing else)-  I (or my alliance) for example would scan everything in G1 and someone else (with who I have no further allegiance or alliance) would do G2.

I know this is done elsewhere  and I am not trying to reinvent the wheel...

Ideas / more alliance functions?
« on: 28 January 2010, 20:17:04 »
So... I humbly suggest (maybe it is here and I cannot find it)- more alliance functions, e.g., I want to see who is in my alliance and where they are at, and maybe where they are at compared to one another...

Perhaps I would go to an "alliance" tab and be able to view one member at a time (whatever information I have or he he posted)?

Perhaps I would want to view where people are at  from my place in the universe?

Ideas / Overall status... (status of status)
« on: 28 January 2010, 19:15:06 »
Is there a quick peak at the "overall status"-  what I see from "default" status is one galaxy at a time, I wonder if there is another way to know quickly what percentage of the (entire) universe has been scanned (e.g., listing of all nine with a one line display for each, and since you have plenty of room on the line maybe something  that indicates how fresh the updates were... (I don't know if this for uses tables,  sorry for format)

eg:
............................Amount scanned.....this week..... 10 days...... 30 days
Galaxy 1 .................100%................... 100% .........
Galaxy 2 .................90%......................40% ............40%..........10%.....
Galaxy 3 .................70%......................30% ............20%..........10%.....
Galaxy 4 .................50%......................23% ............20%..........10%.....
Galaxy 5 .................40%......................10% ............10%..........20%.....

Maybe also "participation", maybe you want some idea o f how much members participate...

Ideas / "user defined" types
« on: 28 January 2010, 18:28:54 »
so... I see I can flag the other traders according to "type" which most of use use (to a degree) such as noobie, enemy, friend (etc...) but... I wonder if (it seems to me) it would be useful to be able to assign our own "types" (or, at least, a subtype).


For example, there are many kinds of enemies (I would say you could even rate them according to your antipathy, e.g., 1-5, 1 being you are saving your money to hire someone to kill him/her, to 5 being... you just don't like him very much).


A more practical example would be- I find someone who I think would make a good farm, I would like to share that information with my alliance partners, but I would like to "claim" him as mine, e.g., suppose there are 5 planets in a sector and I would like to claim two of them, and my other partners would like to claim the others, and maybe we could "rate" the farms 1-5.

In other words... I would like to define the icons you use as I see fit.  Follow?

Ideas / Database DL/ULs
« on: 23 January 2010, 19:19:50 »
since I have been using this tool for about three hours, I am not yet an expert... but... I am not shy about giving suggestions, regardless of merit... is there a format that would allow uploading or downloading of (for example) text files so they could be loaded (unloaded) from our existing (for example) Excel  spreadsheets?

Ideas / numbers abbreviations..
« on: 23 January 2010, 19:16:59 »
As user option...

To truncate numbers (quantity) to make it easier to insert into old brains, e.g., particularly in the reports instead of 1, 234, 566 of metal,  678,123 of crystal and 54,123 of deut, round off to 1.2 KK (or M) metal, 678K of crystal, and 54K of deut.

also... add a grand total resources (e.g., 1.8 KK of stuff)
