Vendor database update
Some new shops (7), new discount codes and a new interface.
I'm not sure about which are the new discount codes, I forgot to take notes, but there are 32 shops with coupon codes now. I guess Zeal PC and StayWires/Koi Cables must be the new ones added last week.
Some developments: shop cake day indication. Probably not the most useful function but another incentive for vendors to provide more data. Shops providing date of founding are highlighted on their anniversaries.
Also, I made some changes in the way shop team info is displayed (if detailed/multiline).
What's more interesting though: there is an upcoming vendor map I'm going to publish in the near future. It needs some final touches but it's almost finished. Members can find the link to the map below and can check it before making it public.
Vendor map preparations
So this will be another interface for the same dataset but with an extra function: answering some question the database is not capable of atm. Like "Any shops in my neighborhood?" or "Is there a keyboard shop in the Middle East?".
If you can't afford supporting this project, don't worry, I might publish parts of these write-ups later.
