it only happened once so far

that would take ages I rekon
hmm okay this is weird.
2017-09-22T16:09:00Z is the last-modify date on one of the two accounts with errors
wait where the heck did I copy that from, that's not what the data says at all
...
I think they literally just logged in, I am a officially a stalker
anyway, 2017-09-22T16:00:47.000Z is the switch time @darthmaim gonna blame you for this
Since clearly it was ten minutes after maybe

2017-09-22T16:00:47.000Z is when the PoF build went live, I guess they were still logged in on an old backend server that saved the old inventory format
:D
(also, it's the worst change since the invention of twitter)

who cares
having more characters seems a good move

140 was an arbitrary choice based on the 160 character SMS limit

I literally don't see how they got to this limit still though

140 chars message + 19 chars @-name + 1 space

Archomeda
@Archomeda
Sep 27 2017 12:29
didn't they change the @<name> at some point to consume less space?
or was it something else?
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Sep 27 2017 12:29
responding to someone doesn't take up space for the name anymore
smiley
@codemasher
Sep 27 2017 12:29
well, the name without the @ ofc
but that's only a recent change
with raising the limit to 280, twitter destroys a whole microcosm of formats that wouldn't exist otherwise
not to mention there's more space for harrassment etc.

Sep 27 2017 12:35
see, you might want to use it more to see what's going on ;)
the icing on the cake is that this change comes at a time where basically everyone on twitter calls for banning the literal nazis over there (some of which even are verified)
(just read the replies to Jack's tweet)
and twitter be like... oh hey, we're gonna change the TOS so that nazis can say whatever they want

someone needs to write a Twitter app that blocks anyone who @s u with more than 140 characters
BoyC
@BoyC
Sep 27 2017 15:44
Tbh i never understood the appeal of the 140 char limitation. Yeah it's similar to the 160 char length of an sms but that's more of a technical limitation, why imitate it?
smiley
@codemasher
Sep 27 2017 15:45
twitter used to be an SMS service so the 160/140 char limit is legit
(or more like: was)
and if you're on twitter for a while, you'll also understand the appeal of the limit
BoyC
@BoyC
Sep 27 2017 15:48
it was an sms service? then it actually makes sense.
still baffled by why it took off so much

should be in there
(its a fact, not a property)
Dominic
@DomGrieco

ah
I see recharge but not cast time
technically activation time I think is what it's referred to
3.75 is the activation time

@lye - I don't suppose you recall if the hero challenge ids are hardcoded?
seems like there may be at least one missing an id
skill_challenges all missing ids
I'm sure you have something neat for viewing the API data but i've got a shitty filter table here: https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Widget:Map_table - anything with "undefined" in the id column

is there a reason why cast time isnt in the skill endpoint?

@DomGrieco cast time and invuln/evade times are encoded in the animation data which I'm currently not unpacking.

It's actually kind of difficult to read it :(

I don't suppose you recall if the hero challenge ids are hardcoded?

@ChieftainAlex I ... I didn't think they are. Might have been a data format change at some point.

Ah it's probably that the Desert context doesn't have an enumeration so they're getting stripped.
I'll have to dig into that a bit.
Just whitelisted all the CD maps on dev, will have to wait 5 minutes
Hopefully the change that adds "Desert" will fix it
yeah hmm it didn't get fixed magically

Not sure if I should be coming in here with this, but seems like the best place. Hi, I'm taking a programming class and we were told to do a project, so I thought that I'd do something using the GW2 API for pets. I was thinking of making a web page that could sort the pets by family, strongest attributes, soulbeast archetypes, etc. Then I looked at the API and realized that there wasn't really all that much in there for pets. There's the name, description, the special skill, and an icon, and that's it. So I thought to myself, "Why not make THAT your project?"
Without doing much more thinking than that, I tried to write a JSON file for pet families. It has each family's attribute ratios (either taken from the pets page or calculated by me), soulbeast skills, and condition damage. I tried to add all the pet family skills in the API, but I couldn't find them and the links on the skill's wiki page in the API didn't lead to anything.
ANYWAY, I (mostly) finished it and now I'm sitting here realizing that I don't actually know what to do now, or even if it was necessary.
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Sep 27 2017 19:40
picked too easy a project then?
rsirving
@rsirving
Sep 27 2017 19:43
Probably.
I'm just wondering if there's anything I should do with this, or if it's even necessary for the API.
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Sep 27 2017 19:51
as an aside... if the api link was missing from a ranger pet skill it meant the id had not been added.. i'll resolve that now

Sep 27 2017 20:08
@lye, I don't have their ids, but could you whitelist the ranger pet skill ids from the expansion? Their names are: Fang Grapple, Jacaranda's Embrace, Head Toss, Blinding Roar + Savannah Strike

41156, 44980, 43636, 42180, 42963 for the pet skills
@ChieftainAlex hmm, IIRC the ranger pet skills are gated behind the visibility of the pets
are the new pets showing up or nah?
hmm they should be hidden since there's a whitelist in place
I can update the whitelist with the new pets which should automatically whitelist their skills
but it won't take effect until the next hotfix (or whenever the content backend server is restarted)
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Sep 27 2017 20:57
I guess the actual pets need to be whitelisted too yeah
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Sep 27 2017 21:03
now I'm wondering how some of the family dependent pet skills have ids on the wiki
the originals, not soulbeast
I removed the pet whitelist; should go live with the next hotfix
Hmm I should probably kick over those servers before the next hotfix
just in case something explodes
