Suggestion on auction search (in General)


QBRanger June 17 2009 3:11 PM EDT

I went to search past prices on the RoS.

When I put in Solitude and clicked old auctions both lesser and full tattoos came up.

Would it be hard to put a toggle to show only full tattoos in such a search?

Burton June 17 2009 3:13 PM EDT

Good suggestion.

GnuUzir June 17 2009 3:14 PM EDT

Yes please!

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] June 17 2009 5:14 PM EDT

something that we could do in the interim would be to copy the wiki link that shows past auction prices for tats as well and just add a lesser and normal link?

kevlar June 17 2009 5:16 PM EDT

it's really not that difficult to sift through regular and lesser tats... is it?

Lefty June 17 2009 5:22 PM EDT

"it's really not that difficult to sift through regular and lesser tats... is it? "

The amount of lesser tats compared to normal ones make it difficult sometimes.

QBRanger June 17 2009 5:23 PM EDT

Kevlar,

it is not a pressing issue, but when I want to see the past prices for a tattoo, it is a bit annoying to sift through all the lesser tattoos to find the few full tattoos that are there.

kevlar June 17 2009 5:23 PM EDT

I find that hard to believe. But maybe me being nearsighted biases the issue...

FailBoat[SG] June 17 2009 5:23 PM EDT

Depending on the tattoo type, it can be almost impossible to find the full tattoos compared to lessers.

kevlar June 17 2009 5:25 PM EDT

Ranger, I got what you proposed, I am just saying from the other side of the field, that it ISN'T that hard to sift through for some people. If you can find a post from 2005, I'm kind of shocked you are having a hard time sifting through lesser/normal tats

QBRanger June 17 2009 5:26 PM EDT

Here are the results of looking for RoS:

Yes, one can use sale price to search, but it can be an eye sore. It was a simple suggestion. If it is easy to do, it may be nice. If a difficult thing to do, then the time needed would likely be better spent somewhere else, like fixing the exbow :)

kevlar June 17 2009 5:26 PM EDT

that is hard? lol... man I must be goofy or something.

QBRanger June 17 2009 5:27 PM EDT

Kevlar, finding that post was easy.

I just did a search on You had your chance and it popped up.

I understand what your typing. I can of course find the normal tattoos, however, when looking at prices, it can be an eye sore looking at all the discordant numbers from lesser to full tattoos back to back.

Perhaps my mind works in mysterious ways.

gols090 [forge of me] June 17 2009 5:28 PM EDT

Not hard necessarily, but just a little thing that makes life easier.

If favorites list didn't automatically go to the next person after each battle, we could still manage, but it's nice to not have to press down each time.

kevlar June 17 2009 5:29 PM EDT

Perhaps....

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] June 17 2009 5:29 PM EDT

the armor and weapons in wiki already have the links for past auctions, we just need to extend it to the tats and have two links. i am not sure that i understand the links but may try it when i have time, unless the person that did most of the other ones would be so kind?

QBRanger June 17 2009 5:31 PM EDT

Dude,

There is no way to seperate the full from lesser tattoos.

When you do a search for any full tattoo, all the lessers come up as well.

When trying to figure out average prices paid over the last few weeks, it is an eye sore trying to hunt down the full over the lesser ones and figure things out.

This is not a huge game changing request. But something that may make life a bit easier if it is possible to do in a short time.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] June 17 2009 5:41 PM EDT

doh, i had assumed that since the weapon links used a + between search phrases that other boolean search operators worked as well.

perhaps we could add some boolean to our auction search and then the wiki linkage would work as well as more precise auction searching?

type in... A rune of solitude

j'bob June 17 2009 6:20 PM EDT

sorry, forgot to add that it does work for the other stuff.
when you type in EXACTLY the name of the rune/tattoo ie An ice familiar, it gives you the results WITHOUT the word lesser.

:D

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] June 17 2009 6:21 PM EDT

/me was ninja'd by j'bob

QBRanger June 17 2009 6:22 PM EDT

I stand corrected.

So it is the exact name you type?

j'bob June 17 2009 6:26 PM EDT

yep. if you're looking for robfs you just type in
A rune of balrog flame

Capitalization not important.

j'bob June 17 2009 6:27 PM EDT

and sorry nov, i'd never ninja you... Dagobah is WAY too cool a place to visit!!!

QBRanger June 17 2009 6:46 PM EDT

Well thanks!!!

Learn something new every day!

j'bob June 17 2009 6:48 PM EDT

and now....
Cake for everyone! Wooo hoo!!!

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] June 17 2009 6:57 PM EDT

and now, we can build the wiki linkages!

[RX3]Cotillion June 17 2009 8:35 PM EDT

Done?

QBRanger June 17 2009 8:37 PM EDT

No,

Well Done!!!

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] June 17 2009 8:43 PM EDT

Ahh it's sometimes as simple as an a. lol.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] June 17 2009 8:51 PM EDT

" Done? "

i was thinking it would be nice to have two links, one to the lessers as well, but that is awesome man!

thanks.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] June 17 2009 8:53 PM EDT

toe & roe missing links?

j'bob June 17 2009 8:56 PM EDT

the Toe is there. I don't see the roe tho.

[RX3]Cotillion June 17 2009 9:13 PM EDT

Done...... Or is it?

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] June 17 2009 9:17 PM EDT
