Reputation

Being a community driven site, we sometimes have issues with data in Galaxy Harvester. The reputation system is intended to help manage that in an automatic way, so that if someone gets enough negative reputation hits in a certain galaxy the system will limit their access to the resources in that galaxy. Unfortunately the system around that wasn't very developed and people have been running into issues where the reputation system is missing some problems and even restricting people when it should not. So we're going to start enhancing that system a bit to help with this.

This update is the first wave of enhancement to the reputation system. I expect at least one more update to follow with more tweaks and possibly an achievements based addition that will not only enhance reputation but also be a help to new users in general. Here is the initial changes that you will start seeing with today's update.

  • Additional check for detecting resources added to the wrong galaxy.
  • Reputation award for contributions after resources have despawned added.
  • Home page alerts provided when reputation changes.
  • Added cooldown period for posting after reputation drop to reduce new accidental wrong entries.

Server Best

What is a server best resource? This question is more complicated than it sounds, it comes with a lot of "It depends...". What profession? What schematic? What experimental property? For example, do you care about encumbrance or effectiveness? Filling or duration? Different crafters are interested in different things, so... it depends. Based on suggestion votes though, many people sure are interested in hearing when a new server best resource spawns, so we set out to build the tools to make that happen.

In the most recent update to Galaxy Harvester you will find some new functionality in existing pages that allow you to keep track of the new top spawns you care about. In the following list, I'll go over the specific areas on the site where you can take advantage of this.

  • Default Alert Types - Your profile page now has a new setting to define your default alert types. This will define how you are alerted for all server best alerts, and the default types selected when you create a new general spawn alert.
  • Favorite Professions - On the My Alerts page is a new section where you can favorite a profession. By selecting a profession as a favorite, you subscribe to all server best alerts for that profession.
  • Favorite Schematics - On the Schematics page is a new option to view the list of your favorite schematics, and each individual schematic page has a star you can click to select that schematic as a favorite. By selecting a schematic as a favorite, you subscribe to all server best alerts related to that schematic.
  • Resource History - On each resource spawn page (the one you go to when clicking the name of a specific resource spawn anywhere on the site), there is a new list that will show up if that resource spawned as or close to a server best.

Galaxy Harvester checks all new spawns that are entered to see if they are the new server best or close to it (within 5%) in any experimental property group for any schematic. Any results are published to that spawns server best history, and if you are subscribed to any related schematic or it's profession, you will get an alert. You can easily subscribe to a whole profession, but if you find that you are getting alerts you don't care about, you might consider un-favoriting the profession and just selecting as favorites the schematics of that profession you care about.

Other minor updates:

  • Add an nicer format for all Alert E-mails.
  • Log the previous stats of a resource when it is edited.
  • Improve performance on resource adds by delaying after checks.
  • Fix bug causing blank screen if you go to recipes page when not logged in.
  • Add Recipes button in logged in toolbar and remove redundant links from other links on home page.

We hope these tools help to ensure you never miss out on a great resource. Enjoy, and please post here and let us know how the new Server Best tools are working out for you.

Favorites Enhancements

A few updates are being released today, mainly related to the favorites/my resources tool. These are the three main enhancements there you can enjoy now:

  • My Resources list sortable by clicking on a column header
  • Export button for saving your resources list as a .csv file
  • View list of your favorite resource types, with links to those types. (Being able to favorite a resource type is new as well. To favorite a resource type, just click the star next to the name on that resource type's page.)

There's also some other minor release notes:

  • Fix for occasional login issues related to small differences in the way a user name is typed.
  • Fix for some instances where a user could not access their own recipes.
  • Display recent spawns above top spawns on resource type page.
  • Added a back to recipe home page to the individual recipe detail screen.
  • Added a link from favorites/my resources to the recipe home page.
  • Associate new recipes to selected galaxy so a user can maintain separate recipes between different galaxies.

Happy harvesting!

Despawn Alerts

Now available is a new kind of resource alert. If you are currently harvesting a resource, and want to be notified if that resource becomes unavailable on Galaxy Harvester, you can set that up. There are two places you can turn on the alert. You can go to your alerts page and add it there in the new despawn alerts box, or if you already have the resource added to your inventory, you can just update the despawn alert option in that resources row in your inventory.

As with the other alerts, you have the option of getting the alert via email, or on the home page of the website. When you add a despawn alert, it will default to email notification. If you want to change it to website, or turn it off, just click the envelope icon for the appropriate row.

A few minor things also going in today:

  • Added display for Resource, Mapping, and Reputation scores to profile pages.
  • Improved some of the tracking in resource event logging when resources are marked re-available or re-verified.
  • Fix top links to inventory an alerts when clicking from some pages like resource view and schematic.
  • Require positive reputation for editing or removing resources.

Resource Admin

Everyone makes mistakes sometimes. That's why today we're adding the ability to fix an incorrectly entered resource name, and the ability to correct the galaxy a resource was entered for. These controls will appear on the page for each resource which you can get to by clicking on a resource name anywhere it shows up on the site. These controls will only show up if you are logged in and have a high enough reputation on the site.

Find and Compare

The schematics tool is pretty great. It can help you find the best resources available or that have ever been available for the different slots of the schematic. It even lets you customize which experimental properties to take into account. I think this method makes sense for some people, but to many it is not very intuitive. That is why at long last we have added a resource finder tool. This tool lets you more directly specify exactly the stat percentages you are looking for to sort the results, as well as some other useful criteria options.

Another feature coming out today that has been long desired is a way to compare resources to your inventory. This is something that people have found to be useful in some of the desktop programs used in the past. If you have some resources added to your inventory on Galaxy Harvester, you can try this out right away. It is available in a couple different locations. When viewing a schematic you can click the "Compare" checkboxes on the right at the top of the best resources groups to compare to your resources. Also, when using the new resource finder tool, you can click the "Compare" button instead of the "Search" button to have the results include comparison to your inventory.

To help with quality comparisons in general, you will also notice that resource boxes will display the calculated quality for the resource when listed in places where quality is being considered. Also some of the options on the home page top resources display have been tuned up to work a little better.

Creature Health Waypoints

A small update was just released which will allow you to post waypoints for creature resources. When you are adding a waypoint and you enter the spawn name that is a creature resource, the box where you normally would enter the concentration percent will switch to a drop down list where you can select the health of the creature you harvested at that waypoint. When these waypoints are displayed in a list or on the map, the concentration will be displayed as the harvest adjustment percent that correlates with the health (Fat and Healthy - 100%, Medium - 80%, Scrawny - 60%, Skinny - 40%). Further discussion on how the creature resource zones work can be found here.
