API for Numista
Posted: 26-Jan-2019, 05:29PM in Numista website

Quote: "vulcaryn"​Hello, • ​ • ​I've tested your API and before asking something, I would say to you : "Thank you for what you've done". • ​ • ​Did you put something like "search coin API" in your road map ? • ​Because actually searching for a coin, without the id, is a little bit complicated throughout your API. • ​ • ​I don't really know what's the main purpose of you API but searching at least on name and date could be really helpful for any API consumer. • ​ • ​What do you thing ? • ​ • ​Thanks.​Yes, searching coins is definitely in my roadmap. However I can't give estimation when it will be available.

[solved] Wrong date - Incorrect islamic date conversion
Posted: 18-Jun-2018, 01:33PM in Numista catalog

Coin: • It looks that this coin use two different calendar types, one "Iranian - persian" 1338-1354 • And second calendar year 2536 (or it's just wrong year). • Anyway when these dates converted to Gregorian dates it becomes 1959-3157.

[solved] Swap status
Posted: 22-Oct-2017, 05:06PM in Numista website

Recently one of my swaps was denied, however I did not received any notification about that. • First, in "Swap history" log there is no mention about that swap was turned down. Second, when I entered Numista the "Exchanges" tab wasn't marked by bold as usually when there are any new changes in swaps. • I guess it's a bug. And by the way, it's not a first time that it happens to me.

Search a coin by image
Posted: 8-Mar-2017, 05:49PM in Numista website

That may be just awesome feature, however like Houseofham, I'm very skeptical if Xavier will succeed to implement that feature well enough to be able provide results better then Google images search. We all know that Xavier is a good web-master, however image processing is completely different study field. • Previously I worked on similar coin recognition application and received quite poor results. • First, you need to ask user to make quality photo of the coin on white background, otherwise simple edge detection algorithm may return you something that you can hardly continue to work with. Few examples: • Second, you need to have in your database set of good quality pictures of same coin (in different quality, illumination etc.) in order to have as much markers as possible. You never know what kind of photo user will provide you, even if you able to stabilize illumination, angle of the photo and other parameters, the coin may be shabby, oxidized, damaged. Small e[...]

[solved] Mistake in profile or 'your coins'?
Posted: 9-Aug-2016, 08:16AM in Numista website

Quote: "Jarcek"​Hi, • ​ • ​maybe you had forgot to delete some comment on your coin that you removed from your collection. This way it may created the mistake. • ​ • ​Regards, • ​Jarek​In my opinion that is a bug. It shouldn't work that way. • I saw many times in user's profile something like: "Collection 23 coins / 120 countries" - How can 23 coins be from 120 countries? That is very confusing.

Numista banknotes
Posted: 9-Jul-2016, 01:01PM in Banknotes

Agree with Andy289. • By the way, if Xavier don't want implement API for the Numista, he can just provide an user authorization interface for third-party developers, which will allow significantly increase site's functionality, that is particularly helpful because Xavier have no time to implement many of requested features. • For example, If authorization interface was available, I can easily add highly requested feature of coins value into my userscript. That feature will take me about 1-2 weeks to develop, but the original topic is already 9 months old and was accepted by 68 users (including Xavier himself which told that it will be probably integrated into the site "after one Christmas or two").

[solved] Visual Problem (Bug) on Numista
Posted: 24-Apr-2016, 01:43PM in Numista website

Quote: "Xavier"​I applied a temporary workaround which should improve mostly the experience, but still some images should be missing for those affected by the issue, especially on the forum and private messages.​Xavier, something strange happens with static content server. It looks like firewall is not configured well. It works fine on my home computer, however it rejects any connection requests from work computer. • At the same time it respond on pings. •

[solved] ID Verification
Posted: 10-Apr-2016, 09:59AM in Numista website

In my opinion the idea to verify users is good, but ID verification is too excessive. • I'll never give any third-party service my photo and ID scan. • I think that credit card verification is much simpler way to do that.

[solved] New message - email notification
Posted: 16-Mar-2016, 09:38AM in Numista website

Hello, • Currently I have a swap with a Numista member that uses French version of the site. Each time he write me a message I receive an email notification with a link to messages panel. But that link brings me to French version of the site: • I think it's a bug and it shouldn't work that way. The link should bring a recipient to version of the site that he use, but not the one that use a sender.

Why people not answer to swap requests?

Quote: Tom Wolf1. These people may not find anything that they like in your swap list/do not collect these coins. Instead of politely replying they would rather ignore your request as if nothing had happened. I've never been ignored , but this is somewhat common throughout the community.I agree that sometimes people just ignore the message instead of replying it with rejection. But ignorance of 80% rate, looks to me out of standard deviation. • Quote: Tom Wolf2. They might be away/on vacation/ left numista a long time ago.
