I've been hacking away on the new Prediction Tracker for the last couple days, and I'm excited to share some of the neat new features that I've implemented so far. The back-end is coming along nicely, and the front end is...well, it's pretty ugly right now. But it works!
Automatic Call Pricing
When one of our contributors submits a Call, the Tracker will automatically pull the most current price from the data source of our choice. Right now, we're going with TCG Player's 'Mid' price since it's the most balanced estimate of the market.
Each time you look at the tracker, the card's most current price from that same data source will be displayed, alongside the current difference between the called price and the current price. This means that we're 100% accountable to our calls. We can't go back and change them, fudge numbers, or use unrealistic buy-in prices.
You'll be able to filter the Tracker by card name, contributor name, and other data points. This is especially helpful for seeing what your favorite author is saying or for checking out what the QS team as a whole thinks of one specific card! We'll constantly be adding more filters as we develop them!
Want to know when a new call goes up? As soon as one of our contributors hits "submit", you'll get an email if you opt in! We think this will be one of the most popular features and a phenomenal reason to sign up for Insider unto itself!
A Screen Shot
Using fake calls. Actually, I put that Olivia call in on Thursday morning, right before I sent out an email blast, so it's not all fake!
All of this is subject to change, but the majority of these features are already in place. We're really looking forward to developing this further and adding more of the vital features as time goes on. We're excited that this is finally getting close to a release version and I hope you'll forgive the deprecation of our current Tracker while this is under development!
