Starting Small Project
Hi, everyone! I’m thinking about starting a small collection management project, and I was wondering if it’s allowed to copy some of the database because I’d like to store it locally in a different structure and experiment. I might come back and end up just using the API instead or maybe share details of my experience and what things did and didn’t work, or I might never actually get anywhere with the project, but I wanted to make sure I’m following all the rules with what I’m doing no matter what. Thanks!

FYI, as far as I know, youre allowed to use the data however you see fit as long as you credit thegamesdb.net.
The only thing they ask is that you mirror or cache the resources yourself, lest all of your clients bog the site down. So it sounds like youre on the right track.
