Are you sure its not someone on a different server with the same retainer name?

Maybe someone is going thru and listing stuff to improve the popularity of their site? It's public domain knowledge and heck it's helping u out!

Plus if they really managed to get a majority of the retainers into their database we'd have a better picture of average prices, max/min etc... Which would help a lot

Why are you posting this in a non related site (besides trying to start a flame war between the two) instead of just sending a PM to one of their admins and inquire about it in a polite way?

not trying to start a flame war. I was just wondering. I did not have a account there till right now . I visit this site a lot so I asked here.

I am actually pretty interested if they are doing this though... We sure can't be bothered to update a site everytime we change our retainers, but to have some sort of idea of price changes is good. I know ffxivpro has price info too, but do they manually update it too? Last time I checked I had to.

it's probably just someone running a mod that captures and uploads the data whenever they check a retainer

yours got checked.

That would be a full time job to browse all the retainers on one server

statistically randomly browsing a certain sample size would give us a pretty good idea, unfortunately the distribution of items is hardly random...
