I'm left scratching my head wondering when my POS runs out of fuel and when my skills are coming to completion while I'm at werk without this... when are we going to get it stabilized??

All our sales systems dies when the API is down.
So does all forums, TS verification and everything else.

The way I see it, API is only useful for paranoid CEOs spying on their corp members.

Don't use it, so I don't care either way.

Also, could we please have an option to disable our API key entirely? Changing it twice daily is becoming a bit of a chore.

I'm curious why would you need to change it twice a day? Just dont give it out.

100% signed!..

Everytime the API dies, so does our killmail fetching (well, one half of it anyway) - leading to some mails not even being posted. Crying or Very sad

The API needs to be given more attention.

I run an in game business that relies heavily on the API in several aspects. with the API down, doing things manually in game takes about 50 times as long as they would take using third party programs running off info obtained through the API.

Also, I hate having to check skills manually to make sure my queue is long enough that I don't lose time if I don't log in for a day or two.

Fix it!

I absolutely support the fact that the API needs serious work.

Many players (not just paranoid CEOs) rely on the API for skill training info, market tracking, and more. Long outages seriously hurt that, and even short outages cause problems.

The API is just as important as the game server itself. If the eve cluster was having a problem this weekend CCP would have the staff there to get it fixed. The API should be no different.

I see many have posted "Signed" but have not really done it.
If you simply post "Signed" but do not check the support checkbox, you are NOT supporting the OP (look at the thumb up icon missing below your portrait).

While I havent been playing enough to worry about pos fuels or corp assets, the API is useful for newer players like myself to plan our training and ship fittings as we improve. Without the API, any changes we manually make to our characters in EFT to determine what we need for stability, dps, etc, have to manually be reset rather than simply reloading. Also, because of API being down, any changes to EveMon plans fail to sync up with the game and give accurate indications of any skills ending during downtime.

Most problems with the API missing may seem minor, but because of the amount of different ways that its used by so many players, it is as integral to Eve as docking and undocking and any issues should have been identified and corrected PRIOR to release, not stumbled over without explanation for a week afterward.

The API really adds to the richness, and helps to alleviate some of the sheer tedium due to limitations of the User-interface. It is realistic too, as you should have various data tools and software at your disposal, and options for 3rd party data management apps.

This really needs considered a 24.7 mission critical resource, Like the market. If the solution is hiring a few more very expensive expert Admins/data architects so get that coverage, then that's money well spent.

I guess with the - hopefully soon - coming of Cosmos/New Eden that has to be done anyway so I guess already looking at it won't hurt especially as the role of the API get's bigger and bigger.

Yeah, EVE's revolutionary support for third-party services and its API is only commendable if you give proper support and affection to said API, its development, and its stability. Normally this is okay but could be improved, and lately this has been abysmal.

I thought this was in the works..

A lot of good topics at the FF roundtables.. I guess someone lost the notes from that..

Signed. 100% support for devoting whatever resources are necessary to keep the API at TQ-level uptime and stability.

There's no reason it shouldn't be able to exceed TQ uptime and stability.
