Who Loves Updates?

Tis the season of love! And what better way to celebrate than with a major update? 

I’ll be honest, this one is a little heart breaking.

I’ll keep this short and simple so it’s hopefully less agonizing:

Jewelry items no longer include color

Before we get too upset, please know I did not make this decision lightly. I’ve been pondering the idea for about two months, watching trends, analyzing data, etc. At the end of the day it all boils down to this: data availability and consistency.

The information we get from data mining guilds’ sales history is limited to text only. Since the new system started, we’ve been manually entering jewelry, which is very time consuming and sporadic. This also limits the amount of sales we can record each month, meaning we’re not providing a an accurate snapshot of jewelry sales. We all know gold items cost more than green, and item color isn’t provided for any other item in the database, so why should jewelry be the exception? I’d rather see hundreds of jewelry sales that paint a bigger picture rather than a handful looking like a poorly drawn stick figure.

Oh, we’re also not tracking glyphs anymore. Because… well… for the same reasons.

With that being said, let me try to mend your broken hearts by saying January was our biggest sale month EVER! Over 150,000 sales recorded just last month! February will be even bigger, thanks to some changes we’ve made. We’ve also made some major improvements on the back end that could allow us the opportunity to grow even more! 

Now lets move on to shout outs, eh?
