My last few AH sales have just shown a pet cage sold. Oh man i hope ppl are getting their pets they are buying from the AH from me.
This has always shown this way in auctioneer and TSM for me after the item has been sold and collected, I never see that I've sold a specific pet. If I look up what I've sold in the past I have Pet Cage after Pet Cage, never Whiskers or Scooter. That part is normal if that's what's happening to you, it looking that way after sales go through and money is collected. The system being bugged and showing just that generic function at the caging/posting/using of the auction is abnormal though.
It seems they never managed to put the pet's ID (name) and state (breed and level) in the way normal items are handled, so it's never been possible to register that via addons as far as I've seen. It's some sort of metadata that registers that that the addons I've used at least haven't been able to capture. Seems to me it's like a mask if you will, underneath every "lil bad wolf, breed so and so, lvl so and so" is really a Pet Cage item with some added data that tells us and the game what it's supposed to turn into in your pet journal. The pets being stripped of the info identifying what they are on the AH is quite serious since that's the only way it seems the game can tell what they are, I hope they manage to fix it soon.
I'm not quite sure that is correct for the more recent versions of TSM and auctioneer. The addons can register these items when they read them from the auction house, but not record that data - or more importantly for those automating sales - sort by "subcategory" ie breed id/level. This means when you view your sales data on bean counter or in the accounting module you see "pet cage" Older versions of auctioneer did not play well with Pet cage and you get the experience I have this morning where everything is a surprise parcel.
As an aside, to track that data you can use a specific group to see each pet - ie name your TSM group "blue moth". That lets you see moth sales but not H/H B/B Etc, in my experience few players are at this time specifically ah shoping for *most* breeds this way, rather filling out collections. You then look at sales of each TSM category.
It seems to have happened in the last 12 hrs or so, so I presume there is or will be a hot fix coming for it, it is the kind of thing that they tend to respond quickly to. .. Now to work out if I bid on mystery surprise....
