1. We have a QA initiative where we work with the community more closely than ever to get your bug reports into the hands of the developers. Please use this forum for LIVE Server bug reporting. Do follow the format below, because it will help us out greatly in responding. If you do not, it's possible your bug report will be misinterpreted, or worse, lost!

    Read BEFORE submitting your first bug: Reporting Bugsā€¦ QA 101 Document
    • Disable all Lua Add-Ons by using '/lua unload' in local chat or temporarily move all files/folders out of the SotA Lua folder then restart the game.
      Ensure the issue still occurs before submitting a bug; Support staff will not debug Add-On issues
    • Search for your bug before posting in order to avoid duplicate reports.
    • Only reply to an existing thread if you have additional information for the reported bug. ALL extraneous commentary will be deleted to avoid cluttering the reports.
    • Keep your bug report short and factual.
    • There is no need to submit crash logs. Crash data we require is automatically logged.

    I am parsing these files for players and it's not possible given the current information in the email, which date format is being used at any given time. I assume this is due to localization.

    So far, I've encountered three different formats:

    03/06/2018 18:46 (local time) - DD/MM/YYYY
    04-07-2018 11:41 - DD/MM/YYYY
    7/4/2018 10:50 AM (local time) - d/m/YYYY

    Any of these formats is acceptable. However, alternating the date and month positions between formats puts me in a position where I have to guess which field is the day or month. The format can't always be determined reliably in all cases.

    Can you normalize the dates across localities?
    Can you embed the given format option in the email?

    Either of these options should make it possible to avoid this problem.

    We've had an awesome number of contributors to https://shroudoftheavatar.net/sota-vendor-management-update and this is the final piece to be put in place, so that anyone can contribute and have their data read accurately.

    Thanks!
