Obligatory update thread: can we get Commander 2016 and Eternal Masters added to the database?

Also, Battle for Zendikar & Kaladesh don't have foils enabled for collections. When adding C16, watch out, as the 4 generals in each deck are only available in foil, while everything else is only in non-foil.

Isn't it cute how you think that the powers that be read and act on the things posted in the forums. I don't know that they even know that anyone pays attention to the things that are missing in the database.

You should know by now that EM is not the most active site (in fact, it needs some TLC), however it eventually gets updated, you just need to be (very) patient...

I don't think we'll be adding Commander 2016 due to the general issue, if we do there will be both foil and non-foil versions. The current eM does not have the capability to differentiate cards in that manner. I will work on inputing Eternal Masters this weekend. As I posted previously we do not update the DB with Compilation sets until they are requested.

Our new site will list every piece of cardboard ever made... or at least try to. However due to the antiquated complexities of the 2000 website we only update for the most recent sets.

Thanks for y'alls patience.

What about the Kaladesh foils? Unless there is more under the hood than I think, that should be a very simple fix.

I think that the news cards could still be entered, the foil issue does not seem too important IMO. We could just select the foil version for those of us who use the site to enter our collection (as I do).

Still working on the update. Mid-way through data collection and processing several disks failed on a hard drive, currently in data recovery phase. I'll add commander.

Update to what? 12/19/2016 8:06:52 PM

Maybe I'm just not very observant; but I saw the banner announcing an update to the site, and can't find any change to the site that wasn't there last week. Can anyone point to the new thing on site for me?

Are you talking about the yellow "don't touch anything" banner? That was there as I was adding/updating new sets but had to stop when the aforementioned disk failure occurred. The drive is in data recovery right now and we expect to have the update scripts in hand in 5-7 days -- at least that's what we're told.

Hi powers that be! I've been on here for a rather long time, but have never ventured much outside of "My Decks" zone. Happy

I use EM as an online repository of my decklists. Love the place!

Came here today when I realized C16 cards weren't auto-populating when I was typing them in.


So yeh, a vote from me to put them in - foil or not. Happy

Any way to get on a mailing list for when the new site is up? Or needs testing?

As the launch for Aether Revolt is upon us; let me add the obligatory request for an eta for the addition of that set to the database. I do have cards to add from pre-release.

We just got word from the data recovery company that the drive our information was on is unrecoverable -- at least by them. Since the effort has gone on for too long I am going to start development on a new service to import cards into our database and recreate the old process.

Thanks for your patience.

PS if you have references to top quality data recovery services please send them our way. However there were only a couple piece of data on the drive that were of any "value" after they are recreated theres no need to use an external service.
