wallet reason has added "DESC: "

So when you pull transaction and journal data from the API, if the reason field has something in it CCP seems to pre-pend "DESC: " to the start of it, why ?

Example of the XML:

[reason] => DESC: SomethingHere

Seems like they are trying to merge the description and reason together ?

I know its easy to resolve,something like: $reasonField = str_ireplace('DESC: ', '', $reasonField);

Yes, they are modelled on real life ;)

They have some kind of bug on their end as I remember that causes them to have to add it. You'll have to work around it like you said until they fix it.
