Pretty sure I said "out through Wednesday"
which implies that international people also know how to interpret time ranges... ;) through/thru > to
it's funny though, being in Canada, we use imperial and metric in a mixed manner.
like weights i'll use pounds, same for measurement in feet, inches.
but long distance i'll use kilometers over miles, same for speed, KM/H over MPH
[00:35] <relic> mystic forge recipes don't have ids? [00:35] <smiley-> nope [00:35] <smiley-> since they're not in the API [00:36] <smiley-> speaking of which, relic https://gist.github.com/codemasher/e2e0e5e39de5dc4439e0 [00:37] <relic> couldn't they just blacklist recipes they didn't want to show up in mystic forge >.> [00:38] <smiley-> ask this question directly over here to @tivac or @lye https://gitter.im/arenanet/api-cdi [00:38] <relic> well now I know why alex wanted to use the subobject name... [00:39] <relic> for exactly the ~5 items that don't have ids... [00:39] <smiley-> heh [00:40] <smiley-> i mean, having the subobject id fine for other kinds of uses too [00:40] <smiley-> like http://gw2wbot.darthmaim.de/smiley, just in SMW [00:41] <smiley-> *is [00:41] <relic> I'm trying to fix the query form to not specify a subobject to pick a specific recipe [00:41] <smiley-> ir should not use one at all when querying for recipes [00:41] <smiley-> *it [00:42] <relic> it's used to pick a specific item recipe for base ingredients [00:42] <relic> specifically Dynamic Tempered Spinal Blades (Infused) [00:43] <relic> and we don't have a name or id to specify which of the three recipes to use [00:43] <smiley-> so why not just ask @lye to whitelist those items for the API :P [00:43] <relic> and it is a dumb edge case that applies to maybe for items in the whole wiki [00:43] <smiley-> i'm pretty sure theese are around there somewhere [00:44] <smiley-> but the whitelist filter seems to run into false positives every now and then [00:44] <smiley-> so any item, whic is ingame and which is supposed to be in the API and which is not listed, should be reported [00:45] <smiley-> either via an issue in the api-cdi repo or on gitter [00:45] <smiley-> https://github.com/arenanet/api-cdi/issues [00:46] <relic> is there a specific reason for no mystic forge recipes? like spoilers? [00:47] <smiley-> yea, i don't remember the exact reason but it has been stated multiple times [00:47] <smiley-> i'm pretty sure you can find it somewhere in that gitter chat log or on the API forums [00:48] <smiley-> and perhaps on github too :DS [00:48] <relic> they might want to study how effective that is at preventing spoilers then [00:48] <smiley-> heh [00:48] <relic> because my guess is going to be "not very" when it gets posted on the wiki immediately [00:48] <smiley-> like... not at all (hello that_shaman) [00:49] <relic> well, since the wiki already posts the recipes... [00:50] <relic> even if they can't look up the api directly, they could just query the wiki API to pull up those edge cases on their websites... [00:50] <smiley-> i remember there was a chat about it and all these questions have been asked :D [00:50] <relic> or use that mystic forge recipe database thing you said earlier [00:51] <relic> does the secret tag mean link only? [00:51] <smiley-> i mean, the item itself does exist and is supposed to be in the API once it has been discovered (=crafted in the MF) [00:51] <smiley-> yea [00:52] <smiley-> (this is not complete, i just wanted to show these kids how to usesimple versionig...) [00:52] <smiley-> (also: effectively removing dupes :D) [00:56] <relic> wouldn't it be fine to remove the items from the blacklist after two weeks after discovery? [00:56] <relic> I bet that was discussed too [00:56] <smiley-> thing is, those items don't notify themselves :D [00:56] <smiley-> the whitelist is completely human in form of @lye [00:56] <smiley-> he doesn't bite [00:57] <smiley-> just drop him a line on gitter [00:57] <relic> well, that's not important as far as the wiki's concerned, we just need the id eventually [00:58] <relic> or whatever you mean by notify [00:58] <smiley-> the wiki should be more important than any other 3rd party tbh [00:58] <smiley-> since it's official :D
