      In theory, Grab 'Em is a really useful tool for posting hands. In practice it is crap since it hardly ever (perhaps never) retrieves stats correctly and encourages inappropriate advice. This is somewhat ironic since much emphasis is placed at PS on posting hands in order to improve ones play.

      Is someone ever going to put this right?

      What chance has (White) Elephant dB of being remotely useful if Grab 'Em is so utterly unreliable?

      Please fix Grab 'Em.

      Grab'em should be fully integrated into Elephant.

      Why not furnish Grab 'em with the few lines of SQL required to correctly access existing dB's. It can't be too difficult since it could be a long-time before Elephant is up to speed as it is a massively complex project in comparison to Grab 'em. You also gain the immediate effect of having 1000's of improved posts across PSForums.

      It would be nice if you told us which file to adapt and which SQL code to write in it ;) The AF problem has been bugging me too, and not everyone knows how to write SQL language.

      It's not just the AF, W$sd and other less important ones are bugged sometimes aswell, once something had a WTS of 200 :P

      Very true. AF is certainly the most persistent error but there are definitely others.

      Great. Then wouldn't it be nice if someone could paste the required SQL in this thread together with some clue as to which file needs appending in Grab 'Em.
