Can you please advise what the "delta" information refers to on evewho?


Delta is simply the difference in the number of pilots from 7 days ago. If 7 days a corp had 13 pilots, and today that corp has 18 pilots, then that corp would have a delta of 5.

PS: Added this question to the FAQ too.

First off evewho is dope...

but one thing confuses me:

"How do you determine the ranking for Pirate and Carebear Corporations?
The security status of every pilot in the corporation is averaged and then multiplied by the log of the number of pilots of the corporation.
corp_security_level = avg(sec_status) * log(member_count)" - quoted from the FAQs


sooo you add the sec statuses up and divide by the number of pilots in corp, then multiply that by the number of pilots in corp?

those two things cancel each other out and you just end up with the total sum of all the sec statuses in corp. unless the "log" is something different.

Average = add all the sec_status together, divide by the amount.
Logarithm is an entirely different beast.

Log(500) is ~6.2 for example.

So if the average sec status is 8, and there are 500 members, the resulting corp security level is 49.6. :)

Have you considered adding an API for pilots which returns the pilot's corp history?

Actually, I know why I didn't do this. I don't need to write an API for this since CCP's API already returns it. I'm not a fan of duplicating work.

cheers

Would it be possible for you to add joinhistory / leavehistory to the api?

Edit: Oh and thanks for the webpage, great work!

Some of you may have noticed that performance on EveWho has gone down over the last couple of weeks. The hosting provider I was using is to blame, seems they have finally oversold their servers and EveWho was being negatively affected.

So, it is time to move.

I've just set up EveWho with a new host and have updated the DNS entries. Everything should be rather transparent for you.

Enjoy!

Awesome tool, I was wondering if I just forgot how to find this, if it was removed or if it was a feature that never existed.

I thought you could search all corps by size from biggest to smallest in one list. I see the top 10, both in alliance and out, but I can't seem to find a way to find corps past those top ten.


Glad your looking for new hosting, this has been an invaluable resource for recruitment and such.

EveWho has never had the feature to search all corporations by size. I've put some thought into it and it would be just too unwieldy to implement. There are 229k corporations in EveWho's database, imagine scrolling through that list?

The new host is OVH where they have some crazy awesome deals on dedicated servers. Check them out if you're ever looking!

Is the api supposed to disseminate older information than what is on the evewho site? I am getting a corp listing of four members on your site but through the api, I'm getting one.

EveWho's API and http pages should match. Could you provide links?

Unless you're comparing to CCP's API, in which a corp has 4 members but EveWho only knows about one. In that case EveWho just doesn't know who the other three members are - and until they popup somewhere (see my other posts) EveWho will continue to not know about them.

Well I think it was a mix of both sides. If you visit: http://evewho.com/corp/Sacrificium+X

You will notice five members listed, but the member count states four. This is partially what was throwing my code off (while members < totalmembers [...]).

I've temporarily remedied this on my end by adding one to the totalMembers grabbed from your api.

Would you consider top 100 or something along those lines by any chance?

I could, but then someone would want Top 200, or Top 1000. At some point you just have to say no.

I'll stick with Top 10

Question regarding the FAQ and hitting the API.

Quote:
To help prevent folks from scraping EveWho and causing high loads a policy is in place that allows 10 requests within a 30 second time period. Anything more than this and you'll be shown an error page and forced to wait. We don't mind folks seeking more information, which is why an API is available.


I'm hitting the API once every six seconds, grabbing data on a per corporation basis, but am still getting the "hammering a website isn't very nice ya know" error after about six requests. That's well over the 10 per 30 seconds that the FAQ states.

What are the exact rules on how often one can hit the API? I'd like to remain in the rules. At the moment I'm simply guessing, because the FAQ is no longer accurate.

The FAQ's numbers are merely a baseline and do not support continuous polling of the API as you're doing it. If you're being denied then you're polling too often.
