Thomas, why on Earth did you replace the old social data with this new economic data? Why didn't you make a new page for that and leave the old data intact? I strongly suggest that you move the economic data to a new page and restore the old data. Rancke (talk) 05:58, 24 August 2014 (EDT)

You mean this data? One of the changes made in the new version of the Trade Map generator is that it pulls this data directly from the Traveller Map site. Because the Traveller Maps is now the one true source of steller data. So I felt that having a copy of the data, which may be out of date, in the wiki was not useful. I have an update to the data files to include a direct link to the Traveller Map data, but am waiting for an T5SS review of some new sectors to be completed.

That's fine, but why not put the new data in a new file and keep the old data in the old file? I've been making subsector data files for a number of subsectors, and they are all in <subsector>/data not <subsector>/SecondSurvey. On top of that, Second Survey is misleading as it implies UWPs for 1065 when what we're aiming for on the wiki is UWPs for 1115. So why not keep the old data in /data and put the new data in /economic or something like that? Rancke (talk) 02:31, 25 August 2014 (EDT)

Thomas? Any reply? I've just had to cut and paste the address to get the sector data for Ilelish. That's just not satisfactory. I repeat my suggestion that you put the sector data back in <sector>/data and put the new economic data in <sector>/economic. Rancke (talk) 04:42, 1 October 2014 (EDT)

I like your suggestion. I'm currently waiting for the T5SS crew to approve as completed the set of sectors in Aslan space. Once that approval goes through and the Traveller Map site has been updated, I'll run the economic data again and update the wiki.I know Joshua is interested in getting his part done as well.
