September 21, 2010: Live AH XML Feed
Right now it's unsupported and not linked to on the main page. Let me know, and donate, if it's useful.

anyway, if I could provide you with a feed with the same format, would there be enough information for you to 'add' my realm(s) into the list?

As convenient as that would be, I don't think I can accept outside feeds for the site. Not that you would do this, but I'd be concerned about players generating a feed, then taking out all their auctions or just screwing with it somehow.
Back when I was designing the site and barely had a few tables drawn up, I thought about distributing the scanning load among other volunteers. I decided that I cannot rely on receiving unaltered, correct feeds, every hour of every day, from others. To maintain the reliability and credibility of the site, I had to gather the data myself. It would cut my costs in half but it's not a responsibility that volunteers should take lightly.

No problem. I understand your concerns. Just thinking of ways to get more realms (specifically mine) up on the list. :P
