Discussion on Trade Audits and Player Status Tracking in Database Systems
The State Changers held a meeting primarily discussing about the handling of players taken and released from a team. They tackled the issues and solutions around the creation and maintenance of an audit log. Considerations were made such as a player's status in relation to their team, with solutions revolving around the use of boolean values. The audit log's complexity and necessity were also discussed, weighing their advantages and disadvantages. Notably, the concept of the audit log was clarified to be a record of mechanics done to the primary state table and not necessarily indicating significant events in the player's career. This insight helps emphasize the importance of understanding what data one is capturing and how it is portrayed through the database, in this context — the audit log. No specific tech tools were mentioned in this part of the discussion.
