The card queries page has been updated to allow searches based on bids and asks by specific nations. You can use this to check, for example, which cards meeting certain criteria for a collection you have already placed bids on. Many thanks to Ballotonia for implementing the API call enabling these t...

Request Would it be possible to expand the cards API and include options to retrieve a nation's asks and bids? Bids in particular would be useful for collectors, who may want to check what cards from a large set they have placed bids on, or to check for bids on cards they already own, etc. Thank yo...

Would it be possible to revisit this suggestion? It was brought up here , and several players mentioned they would benefit from the addition. But the discussion soon digressed to including LASTUPDATE in the dumps. It'd save me a few dozens of thousands of API calls per day, and I imagine it's the s...

I think r3n's suggestion that there could be a flat probability increase of pulling a card while it's at auction, open to anyone, not affected by pulls or bids, makes sense as a default option. There's probably a more creative way to do it though. Ransium's "no tcals but more cte pulls" w...

For example, it could be: https://www.nationstates.net/cgi-bin/api.cgi?q=cards+collections;nationname=testlandia Ideally it could be combined with deck an...

That is indeed the main goal of my proposal (a): return pull events to their original form, which generally seemed to be enjoyed by the c...

My view remains the same as what I had written at the start of the thread here . If anything, the way the anti-laundering system has been used since it was first reported has reinforced my views: 1) The bidding mechanic overwhelmingly favors players with big card farms, who are best positioned to fr...

Some parties are very interested in update speed statistics. Will the gathered data be shared with the player base, or was this more to diagnose and fix issues with the update speed, rendering such data only temporarily useful at best? Not sure what kind of data you are looking for. But if all you ...

I agree with all of this. Ever since the bid mechanic was discovered, the anti-laundering system has become completely exploitable. What is worse is that this is an exploit that primarily favors players with big card farms, who can trivially stock up large amounts of decks and open them during self-...

Hi, I am sorry to quadruple-post, but I wanted to bring this thread back to the first page.

[violet], I don't know whether the changes you made in this thread were also meant to help with API requests. However, the CAPTCHA test still shows up for the same API calls I had discovered in the OP.
