An absurd number of changes have happened at mtgprice.com over the last 6 weeks and almost none of them were clear to the users.
Firstly, I’d like to say yes, we are still here. We’re building something for the long-haul and this site isn’t going away any time soon.
We will post a full update on all the changes on Thursday. In the meantime, I’ll give a quick overview of what changed:
1. We completely rewrote the way we gather card information. The old way simply wasn’t working any more and we wanted to focus on quality above all else. This meant that the card listings were out of date for almost a month. This has now been fixed.
2. Foils have been added! You can see the first day’s worth of foil data up now. We haven’t added the foil prices to the autocomplete yet but that will come in a day or two.
3. Many features have been removed. We’d like to focus further on quality over quantity of features and the ones we rolled out initially were simply too buggy to keep around. We’ll bring them back gradually as they get tested thoroughly.
Now that the essential “back-end” overhaul is finished, we can finally get back to building a great site for you, the users. The next three weeks will see over 100 improvements to the site, including a completely new design. Check back on thursday for more details!
