    Question Hot Items/Top Sellers?

    Quick question, and I apologize if this is covered somewhere but I have not been able to find it.

    What is the criteria that The Undermine Journal uses to populate the Top Sellers and Hot Items lists?

    Is it total combined buyout value of all goods on the AH for that item/seller? Or something different?

    I ask partially because I find Top Sellers to be something of a crapshoot. There are times when I'll be selling a ton of goods and expect to be near the top of the list... and find that I don't even make the cut. Then there are other times when I won't even be selling a lot and I'll be at or near the top. It is all relative I guess based on what other people are doing, but it still always makes me curious.

    Thanks for your work on this!

    The purpose of Hot Items and Top Sellers is to give examples of interesting items/sellers and not to act as any sort of leaderboard.

    Hot Items is a mixed list of items that currently have:
    - the most auctions up, or
    - the highest average price, or
    - the highest quantity up for auction

    Top Sellers is a mixed list of sellers that currently have:
    - the most auctions up, or
    - the highest total buyout up, or
    - the highest quantity of items up for auction

    Again, not meant to be statistically relevant criteria, just some item/seller pages that *should* have interesting stuff to look at.

    Thanks for the reply, that does clear some things up.

    Have you given thought into making each of those criteria which you just mentioned independently sortable on a per realm basis? I know that in the past you have responded to forum questions with internal data that isn't easily available on TUJ. Could the ability to run queries like this be made into a feature?
