I'll keep this fairly short as the title mostly explains the issue. Currently, the API can track ingame market transactions, and has as such given rise to programs such as EVEHQ, EVE Commander and a million others, to allow budding tycoons to track their sales from outside the game.

Not so with contracts :(

CCP, isn't it time that contracts traders like us were given the same opportunity? Make contracts data viewable through the API!

Thanks for your support/comments. Very Happy

How about some level of PI feedback while we're at it too? Might be a bit tricky to format, but should be possible.

Why are contracts traders denied the same data management opportunities as regular market traders?

Fight this discrimination!

Free the contracts data from the tyranny of the client!

Unfortunately seems a lot of people neglect the importance of your proposal.

I'm not trader not even industrial making dozens of contracts per week but has Eve player who likes this game to become better every time I log, this idea would be awesome.

Don't loose hope, link your proposal in the industry/market topics, people will come support you.

Thank you for your support, and your vote of confidence Smile I realise that this proposal perhaps isn't at the forefront of people's minds when they think of things that could be fixed - hybrids come to mind - but, as you say, this issue is indicative of the underlying problems affecting the economic aspects of EVE.

As you pointed out, an industrialist setting dozens of contracts over the period of a week would find this lack of data sorely frustrating. As a professional contracts trader - such as myself - setting dozens of contracts a day, I am near to tears when I think of all of the contracts data that is efectively going to waste, all because CCP won't tie them into the API in the same fashion as market transactions. It would be so immensely useful plotting the course of one's business using this information, but alas, we have to make do with such crude methods as dragging and dropping finished contracts into notepad to create a record, and then tabulating by hand.

As for your idea to link it into S&I (or even MD), I would dearly love to do that, but I think it might get slapped down rather quickly by the mods for cross-posting Wink Thanks again for your encouragement!
