To whom It may Concern:
For a while, Consoles had no accurate pricing guide. And a few years ago, An Xbox guild stepped up and answered the call to offer the pricing bot for the Xbox NA server. This guild, made up of volunteers, a coder, a guild master, and over 30 independent trading guilds EACH WEEK record their transaction data or sales and purchases, compiling it into thousands of screenshots A WEEK, and hand entering them into a Google doc for the Discord Xbox Pricing bot to access. An incredible feat in its own right. With a small dedicated team of volunteers (around 10) they plug away at the sales data, checking it for accuracies over the course of 4–6 days, and turn around and do it all over again the following week. The TSC Pricing bot is on over 1000 discord servers and is an INVALUABLE resource to this community, and to the PlayStation community, since the PC Bot prices are no where close to reflecting that of console sales. Tens of Thousands of players rely on this bot working each week to fill the community need.
Tamriel Savings Co. - the trading guild, and the guild master SavageTSC is the brainchild of this bot. And we, as guild members, have noticed an issue lately. Since the Xbox update on March 28th 2023, the logs of transactions and transfers now loads much slower after a couple of hundred pages are viewed in the guild transaction records. Since the guilds involved hand screenshot this data, what use to be a few minutes, is now a daunting task of 30+ minutes to sometimes hours depending on the sales data of the guild.
Unfortunately, in talking with the guild master of Tamriel Savings Co, and a few others that do contribute their data, Unless the streamline of the guild search functions are returned, the entire PlayStation, and Xbox community are at risk of loosing this valuable resource to both communities. The time it takes to grab data, and the time it takes to enter this data with the increase (however slight) is a mighty deterent to those guilds that contribute their data. Some contributing guilds have more data to offer, in the 10,000+ range of screenshots each week, due to their trading fame as a guild.
So we ask that you look into this issue, for the wellbeing of the trading guilds, discords, and vast communities both on Xbox AND PlayStation that rely on this bot alone for their pricing needs.
