Hey, don't know how realistic this is - just posting it here for posterity.

 

Basically, my idea is that at some point we introduce a box on the homepage that automatically grabs the Top 5 "Top Sellers" on Steam and links to their articles on PCGW. Obviously it would automatically update with Steam. I guess it just depends on what the Steam API is like?

 

This is a very interesting idea - would absolutely love to have this functionality on our site. Steam has an official feed which only contains the top weekly sellers: http://store.steampowered.com/feeds/wee ... ellers.xml

 

Options:

 

1) We'd need a way of parsing this feed and redirecting it to our pages. However, it's beyond my technical expertise.

 

2) Get someone to customise a crawler for us to scrape Steam's homepage and produce a top 10 list which links to our articles

 

3) Do it by hand on a set period, e.g. once a week.
