also, why is "Cannot link from this location" a thing?

Bonus points if you're linking an item in your inventory or off the TP.

i think someone who changed the linking code went overboard really
@queicherius those have been in there for awhile -- they predate the manual whitelist step
those items technically were acquired at some point, but maybe not by players
@rwfrk_twitter I dunno off the top of my head; there are at least two RNGs -- I think one's a linear congruential generator and don't know what the second is. The first was used for drop tables for awhile until we realized it couldn't actually generate some rolls (hence Final Rest never being dropped by SB) so it was replaced in all places that didn't depend on the broken behavior.
The replacement uses multiply with carry

Seems like all the skins that exist are showing up, whether or not you can acquire them.

I guessed it from the fire bit, not the "api" in the title bit.
uhh
I did just do a live deploy but the skins bits haven't changed? :O

revert, revert, revert
:wq^Z^C^D
I don't think these are new
the quip rifle I've seen before -- it was scarlet's monster weapon
iirc the moa unarmed staff is also a monster weapon
i should hop on TS and tell enko not to scare the crap out of me

and the mist weapons, @lye
the beta rev skins
Last changed June 17, 2016
I think the mist weapons have been in there for awhile?
There's definitely some weird data in there but that isn't really a new thing

I can look that up in a sec

makes sense, they were obtainable in the HoT beta anyway
I just spent 30 minutes trying to debug why django's makemessages deleted half of the translations
turns out that I was telling it to do so

damn, the skin code for gw2treasures is so old its not even tracking the timestamp :/
dang
in any case I don't think this is a change
there have always been lots of wacky skins in there
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Dec 12 2016 22:01
the item was added to the api on 2015-09-28 20:38:29
guessing the skin came at the same time
probably -- whitelisting an item automatically whitelists the associated skin
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Dec 12 2016 22:03
uhm, its not in my local development database (the item is)
my local db is from 2016-09-22T01:34:41+0000
weird
this is the mist one right?
are enko's screenshots from gw2e? I wish he had the skin ids :(
It is whitelisted, so
and I'm pretty confident the whitelist code hasn't broken or anything :/
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Dec 12 2016 22:11
what is the point of having these weird items in there tho?
they pre-date the manual whitelist step
the whitelist used to be 100% automatic, but sometimes support or a GM would spawn in the wrong item
so a lot of stuff got in there erroneously and I haven't spent the time to remove all the weirdness
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Dec 12 2016 22:13
and the mist one could be obtained at one point
for example
if it's the same item as the beta weapon; not sure actually
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Dec 12 2016 22:13
well there should be logic for these items to appear in the wardrobe too right
would have to do some digging
if you have the skin unlocked AFAIK it'll show in the wardrobe

I am mostly wondering about items with type SmallBundle etc
I actually don't know the distinction between small/large bundles, but those are items that you can pick up in the overworld that replace your skills
like environmental items and such
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Dec 12 2016 22:15
those are really old
the first small bundle was added 2014-05-12 21:08:32
I'm not sure if we really use them much anymore
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Dec 12 2016 22:16
the latest one was added 2015-09-14 23:22:49 btw
IIRC that's around when the manual whitelist bit was added
actually maybe a bit after, I don't recall
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Dec 12 2016 22:17
looking at my graphs it looks like the manual whitelist was added 2015-03-09
lol
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Dec 12 2016 22:18
thats the first day where no items were added
(in fact the whole week no new items were whitelisted)
uhhm, I think my crawler was simply down that week :D
no data at all from that week
or maybe the API was down ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
also possible lol
