Can we get the number of kills for each faction added to the top 10 page? For example how many of the following kills in Aideron Robotics were faction warfare kills?

The kill-board is crap due to this main reason, the board has been designed around one focus greed! WTF is this ****?

So not only do you want advertisement and CCP to give you money for a new server but you also want to collect a mass of emails from eve players for some strange reason..

I might design a nice simple, responsive site togive you guys some competition. It will share kill-mail information with a HIVE, the hive will link to a cluster of donated mysql databases all linked with at-least 2 copies of 1 killmail randomly distributed, a truly open system for the community.

Wow, aren't you jumping the gun a bit? We're restricting that in beta because some of the queries haven't been tuned just yet, and we only want to hit the database if we have to. Relax, this isn't going to be permanent.

Competition?

That'd be the first in a few years, i for one welcome it! Pirate

edit://
Anyway, let's dispell a few of your claims.

1. No, we don't care about your emails, we simply need it to help password retrieval if it is needed
2. We never asked CCP to give us money, we asked the community to help us along faster than we would have been able to otherwise.
3. Servers don't pay themselves, and they aren't free, so yes. Ads are necessary, esp. seeing that asking for donations running upwards of 500 EUR a month, every month, would probably fall short, meaning we had to pay stuff ourselves - and we don't want to do that if we can get around it.

As for your idea of a hive thing, it could most likely work - it could also fall on it's face real hard. I'm mostly seeing it doing the latter Blink

Oh i can make it happen don't worry about that, just take a look at my portfolio www.froggycreative.com.

However, i would rather engage with projects that are already out there for the community, if this killboard doesn't turn into a ransoming monopoly on other 3d party developers or users then i am happy to contribute to this project if it is needed.

We don't want to ransom people, nor do we want to run a monopoly. We have always been open about the board, and have always had APIs open to people. We have also supported our competition by allowing them to use our APIs.

As far as 3rd party developers go, we have always supported them, and will do even more with zKillboard.
By both integrating their services into the site, and by linking to them. We obv. don't expect them to link back, but if they would, great! Big smile

Anyway, as far as your concerns for us becoming these (and i'm paraphrazing here) abusive assholes - fear not. Smile

Been using this one for about two weeks and it's a pleasure to view, unlike regular killboards.

i would like to propose 3 modifiers for the api:
- modifier to not respond items
- modifier to not respond attackers
- modifier to respond involved ally/corp stats

thanks for a great service !

Done! The modifiers are no-items and no-attackers

Won't happen today, but it will happen :)

nice!! one more thing i found today:
http://zkillboard.com/api/systemID/30001160/pastSeconds/172800/
that link seems ok to me but doesnt work. it throws this error:
Message: Must pass at least one required modifier. Please read API Information.
adding eg /kills/ doesn't help.

thanks again

Yea, I keep meaning to link those but every time I get around to it I realize I want to rewrite the code that powers that page and I get a sudden case of laziness.. What?

Fixed. We were missing systemID in the required list...

Good request. Done!

(will only display for corps/allis/pilots who are recently seen involved in facton warfare)

i think the api modifiers
- orderDirection/asc/
- orderDirection/desc/

have no effect. i would like to get latest kill first...

I endorse this product due to the fact it has a solo tab.

If for some reason over the next days, you see strange text pop up at random places, it's because i'm messing with the translation stuff.

Yes, the page will most likely be translated to different languages, crazy huh? Pirate

Oh and, ads, they are now enabled - not sure on their placement tho. I'd prefer them in the side, but Squizz is quite adament about them being in the top. Could make it a user preference i guess, selectable from the account panel.

Are you planning to stop the feed terrorism you established in eve-kill.net and make normal XMLs or output original CCP XMLs or will continue 'draw KMs as i like' practice ?
