I have a web system running off the old XML, in the admin panel you can add another admin by typing a characters name and it will check if they are real, if so, pull in their corp/alliance info and portait for immersion.
If I’m right, this is now impossible with ESI? The problem being you cannot get a characterID from a characters name?
Why is there so much protection over a characterID? Seems a bit pointless and obstructive, making it very difficult to migrate to ESI while maintaining the same functionality.
