Hi, I just noticed that a bunch of new resources were posted on Bloodfin with no stats listed....was that a mistake or did the poster not know how to report the resources properly? Are we allowed to enter the stats ourselves if we see this happen?
I like it best when I can check for new resources before I log in and when I post new ones I add the stats..it really helps everyone and I'd like to thank those who also do that :) HUGS..thanks in advance...Arrie

Hi there.
It is me updating the resources using droids and swgaide. I did that when i noticed the resources were not updated for 2 days. I was thinking that i can add my contribution to this project at least by updating the spawn and despawn moments. I was updating the stats too until i lost my crate. I got my crate back and I am using it to update resources that I am interested in. So no it is no mistake and I know how to update the stats.
Sure you are allowed to add the stats. Feel free to add the resource too. If my entries make updating the stats difficult please let me know. Looks like Avolo and Vielar, our top contributors, are missing for a couple days. Let me know if you plan to update the site on a daily basis.
I received also a PM from somebody complaining about the same thing, adding resources without stats. I am saying this again, feel free to add your contribution.

Regards,
Rohie

Welcome rohie, thanks for helping out.
Adding resources without stats is still a help for tracking spawns and de-spawns and at least some info gets into the SWGCraft database. Anyone can add stats later, the (Edit Stats) above each resource is there for doing just that. Get's a little addicting doesn't it?

May the Farce be with you :mrgreen:

Adding resources without stats is perfectly fine and should not be looked down on, see No stats vs. with stats for the full discussion.

For further information:

SWGAide has several ways of updating resources and also to update missing stats. The ISDroid panel has 4 different lists, one is for resources in spawn but that lack stats.

However, this post clicked a button for me and I will verify that it is possible to use the Resource >> Submit Resources tab to also list/submit stat-less resources. In fact I believe I missed that case when I added that feature.

Whatever, anybody can add stats at a later time, in several fashions, more or less in the same way as you add new resources, if they exist in the database they are updated with planet and/or stat information: How to Update SWGCraft.
