Why is there /v2/pvp/amulets and /v2/pvp/amulets/:id but only /v2/legends and not /v2/legends/:id in https://api.guildwars2.com/v2? (same for most of the other endpoints too)
Also, why is /v2/pvp/amulets marked as localized and /v2/pvp/amulets/:id not, even though the second one is the endpoint returning localized data?

why not ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
it's been awhile since I did an after-five friday live deploy
hah fro updated wvwintel to use the new world linking data
darthmaim

Apr 23 2016 00:15
well, this is interesting: https://gw2hero.es/account/4/lawton.1697/activities
I added the deletion of characters that are not returned from the API anymore and it deleted that Solveig Gulbrandsen character, but then created it again
so it must have been returned from your api key
what the living fuck

["Solveig Gulbrandsen","Helga Wintercrest","Escrow Fallencrest","Iron Legion Engie","Ominous Escrow","Cherry Deathbloom","Serene Blastia","Erza Reverent","Iva Starsbane","Shieldclaws","A Bait","Quagga Backpaker","Spora Kindred"]
that's totally not my character though
lye @lye logs into live to check
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Apr 23 2016 00:18
funny thing is when I checked earlier it wasn't in there
yeah uhh I don't have a character named that
something is probably horribly and subtley broken
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Apr 23 2016 00:21
now you have something to think about over the weekend :P
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Apr 23 2016 00:32
my google fu says Solveig Gulbrandsen is probably a character of plethomacademia.8265
I'll have to figure out what's going on next week
i'm not gonna lie, I'm pretty terrified
also I just deployed the fix for that enumeration inconsistency

honestly considering turning off /v2/characters
@darthmaim is that activities page accurate?
the first time that showed up was 6-7 months ago?
turning off /v2/characters
no ETA and having it back up
David Reeß
@queicherius
Apr 23 2016 01:03
Oh boy. :fire:
@queicherius have you gotten any reports about characters appearing on the wrong accounts?
or really has anyone seen this before
David Reeß
@queicherius
Apr 23 2016 01:05
Nope, nothing
well, that's good at least
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Apr 23 2016 01:06
Yes, the times on the activities page are accurate
goddammit so this has been bugged for 6 months
well I've got my work next week cut out for me
this is going to be a lot of fun to track down -_-
well I'm going home to cry into a pillow
sorry about the downtime
David Reeß
@queicherius
Apr 23 2016 01:11
You got this @lye :star2:
@queicherius preemptively turns some stuff off...
Is the downtime gonna be until monday at least?
yes
probably until the next game release unfortunately
darthmaim

darthmaim
@darthmaim
Apr 23 2016 01:13
lets hope its only your account, never had that happen to any other accounts
it's probably not just my account
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 23 2016 01:14
must be a very rare occurrence then
David Reeß

How the hell do you do that color chat thing? https://gitter.im/arenanet/api-cdi?at=571abf167469496137b87078
my account probably gets a lot of traffic since I post my API keys everywhere
Archomeda @Archomeda laughs

"If you are seeing big changes in your account value, everything is working as expected! Read more here" i probably must f5 then :P

Apr 23 2016 01:15
Nah, I am still changing it. :D
Was too busy trying to figure out gitter

@lye is this going to hunt you all weekend?
pretty much
this shouldn't be possible
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 23 2016 01:17
until you find that one little small bug
David Reeß
@queicherius
Apr 23 2016 01:19
Holy crap there is the first email about it being bugged.
AT LEAST GIMME LIKE 2 MINS
that was fast
anyway I'm gonna call it
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 23 2016 01:19
and then you facepalm and think "why did i not see that earlier?" for an hour
sorry again about this ;;

@queicherius are you turning off all the character crawling?
David Reeß
@queicherius
Apr 23 2016 01:20
Yeah, killed everything off
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 23 2016 01:21
well i suppose this will be a weekend where a lot less requests will be done to the api :D
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 23 2016 02:52
hmm, i just checked the world populations... it's quite interesting how some servers are now full
does the wvw population of a "host world" now include the wvw population of the paired world too now?
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Apr 23 2016 04:39
I think that's because it's hard to see how your population balance change is doing if players are moving themselves about

i just noticed, that the GW1 launcher silently confirms a matching password even if the account name is wrong
it doesnt log in, but the error essage is a differnt one then
in fact, it should say "username or password doesn't match" in both cases
(in case a character name to that given account was supplied)
smiley
@codemasher
Apr 23 2016 11:23
(one more detail: the account name before gw2-link was used, so techically the credentials would match)

good luck with that. keep us updated, and if you have an issue, talk about it. I'm pretty sure there's enough of us here to help :)

If you need help with that just ask

Also, think about what device & browser versions you are targeting. It may strongly impact the js&css features you can or cannot use.
And take a look at flexboxes, if you haven't already. It's powerful stuff for layouts.
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Apr 23 2016 12:51
I am targeting my browser

How about a good IDE to use when I don't wanna install PHPStorm on my work PC?
Aralicia
@Aralicia
Apr 23 2016 13:29
Hmmm. before taking PHPStorm, I was using Notepad++ for years. It's effective, but I wouldn't say it's a good IDE.

eclipse+pdt... :D
David Reeß
@queicherius
Apr 23 2016 13:58
My gotos are PHPStorm & Sublime. Eclipse was (at least on my specs) crawling slow. :<

emacs it is

@codemasher

i haven't used eclipse in ages (basically since i switched to phpstorm like 5yrs ago...) so i can't tell^^

http://build.sleiarion.net/ Well, it's a start.
Aralicia
@Aralicia
Apr 23 2016 14:25
Is it me, or your main.js is pretty much empty ?
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Apr 23 2016 14:26
Well, yes. There's no "pretty much" about it, it is. XD
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Apr 23 2016 14:28
I love the amount of effort that went into that
FYI: I just tossed a 1-second cache in front of /v2/wvw/matches
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Apr 23 2016 16:31
:fire:
just in case something starts acting weird
pretty much :fire:
50% increased traffic started triggering alarms
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Apr 23 2016 16:32
Increased traffic? Because people need data for more worlds now?
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Apr 23 2016 16:33
probably because more people are playing wvw right now using apps that load /v2/wvw/matches clientside
Aralicia
@Aralicia
Apr 23 2016 16:35
Probably yes. That's one of the issues with clientside apps, I guess.
Yeah, it's the client-side apps.
Not that that's an issue, I just should have had a 1-second cache in front of our backend anyway.
David Reeß
@queicherius
Apr 23 2016 16:37
@lye What cache system do you actually use? curious
it's an in-house system that's basically memcached but over a grid
so the requests are routed to the correct machine based on the cache key
David Reeß
@queicherius
Apr 23 2016 16:38
Ah, I see. Thanks! I love learning about systems. :D
Aralicia
@Aralicia
Apr 23 2016 16:38
Ho, that smart.
How 'bout we let lye have his weekend, now ? :)
hahahahAHAHAHA
i'm gonna get some coffee, have a smoke, then fix the EU all_worlds missing
and the other various things I lit on fire the other day
relic
@nukiebaba
Apr 23 2016 16:53
don't forget the marshmallows
okay, all_worlds should be working again
it's a hardcoded hack and I triple-checked that it matched the game server configuration

Starting this beta on a friday was a great idea
to be fair, we'd have to change reset times which would be hugely bad
