That is awesome. But would it be possible at all to select the items for list directly on the search page, by ticking a check box, and then - once all desired items are selected click on button to add all selected items to the list at once?

That would be quicker way for players selecting many items. Instead of 2×n clicks, there would be only needed n+1 clicks.


Thank you for the suggestion!
Just added it. Hopefully lists will go live within the next week. Still testing everything out on them, they are probably about 80% complete at the moment

Honestly, probably one of the best off-site websites created for YoWorld, and the fact that you're taking feedback & making improvements to it is exciting!

Would love for this to take off and also possibly become a price guide in the future

Agree! If this doesn't earn 1WTC a special award of some kind....there's no justice in the YoWorld! :D

On the subject of price guide I had a suggestion I wanted to mention:

The price starts at zero.
A user "votes" for a new price.
This user's mac address is recorded and immediately coded to mask its true value for security.
Unlike real life, this voter cannot vote again.
Repeat for all voters.
Later an arbiter or a program reviews the votes and excludes any that are outside the standard deviation of the mean.
Voila! A relatively accurate price guide.

A wizard like 1WTC could take the kernel of this and make it fly...

Thank you everyone for the kind words!
And in response to the post above, I have an idea which will work very similar to that. I'll probably get to work on it after I've finished lists.

Also, in regards to lists, here is a small video just showing off the selection process

I like this concept also and prefer it to the older price guides, mainly because there is no place for "admins" of the site to have bias opinions towards their own items. Although, I can imagine people holding "voting events" and encouraging other people to vote for a higher value than the item is really worth.

Regardless of how you go about adding a price guide feature it'll always be abused by certain individuals. So long as it is well moderated and maybe instead of a single price for an item being shown, instead a range is shown. Therefore if a player wants to buy an item and one person is trying to jack the price up they can look at a range of different prices and see that it normal sells for X amount instead of the high amount being asked by the person jacking the price up.

This shows the expected range of values input by users:

In this concept, those at the extremes are discarded...

Oh so true Rawr! I've always struggled with math and managed to get A's, but it's not easy for me. I know some friends that actually have a Math degree! OML! Who would subject themselves to such torture?!!

I think the database is updated everyday at 00:00 BST
It's an automated process I setup on one of my other servers but I don't have access to it at the minute so I can't check, however I think that that is correct

I have a feeling that sometimes the data I'm getting from BVG isn't fully up to date. As I remember the anniversary items taking a little longer than usual to appear
