Discussion Data flow from CAPI/Journals via EDDN and APIs to third party websites.

As I keep seeing people confuse EDDB with EDDN, and in general not know how game data gets from players to the various third party sites I've made an infrographic. As per the notes at the bottom this doesn't cover every possible interaction between every possible tool and every possible website. It's intended to just make it clear what the general flow is:

I've recently uploaded version 1.1 with a few tweaks:

  1. The CAPI cloud has a few notes about what it provides
  2. EDSM API line is now all curvy (to ensure the arrow to the player-run tools is distinct from other arrows at that end).
  3. Added https://edcd.github.io/ URL as that's the general EDCD info and includes Discord invite link.
  4. Version number/date of publish added bottom-right.

Additionally the files are now also on github.
