Hi friends..

This has probably been up b4, but lacking the "Browse Forum" skillbook at level 5, I'm taking a chance posting my inquery..

We are trying to increase our corp faction standing, and whish to give our members an incentive to run some more missions.

So the plan was to put a isk bonus on members reaching a certain standing toward a corp or a faction.

BUT: we cant see the member standing anywhere..

Are there a feature, 3'rd party program, or website where we can track corpmember faction and corp standing ?

Best regards,

You can do this through the API, and possibly bug someone to write you a program to streamline the whole thing if you don't like typing and sifting through XML.

I wrote a basic tutorial on how to get the info you're after, but the forum just ate it, and I forgot to copypasta it before hitting post Sad

So its possible with a little code to list corpmember standing on our website?

Dabble a bit with php and used a few commands to list stuff in IGB, but havent worked with apicodes directly in the script..

Anyone has something in writing i could read thru ?

Here you go:

Tack your arguments on at the end (ie. '&apiKey=#######')

You'll have to nest the commands such that you query the characters on the account, grab the characterID for the character you're interested in, and then use the characterID as an argument in your standings query. Most efficient way would be to just grab the characterID once and stash it in a database, only need to update it if it changes for some reason.

Have fun!

(sorry for the double post)

Almost forgot to mention: Store the results from querying the API in a database and only actually run a query if the data in the database is beyond a certain age. The API only gives updated info so often (depending on what you're querying, it will say how often on the site I linked in the last post) so there's no need to pound the EVE servers and your server's connection if the data isn't going to change for another hour.

You can see this in game, right now, any time you want.

I answered this in another thread last night about standings so I won't repeat it here. ( I was a bit miffed at a CEO that doesn't know how to do this so it may have a slight sarcastic bend to the reply)
