Re: apikey stopped working

Every response you've made has been veiled threats and needlessly antagonistic, when ZerO explained it neatly to you. The key is limited by IP. You, in testing, will not ever be able to scrape thousands of entries repeatedly, other than described previously - by queuing downloads or running a mirror...

Re: apikey stopped working

So what you're telling us is you're not interested in users queuing their downloads like everyone else, or that you're not able to do so because... reasons? Every unique IP associated with your key has a monthly limit of 1000 calls; if you're farming those through your app to mask IPs yet somehow a ...

Re: apikey stopped working

You're not limited to 1000 entries per month, each call can pull 20 results.
That's 20,000 basic results, or 10,000 results with full images, per IP per month.

Re: apikey stopped working

Pinged Zero for an official response.
Unofficially, I know some debugging has been ongoing, but how (or even if) this is related is not yet clear.

Re: Remaining monthly allowance

Yep, we reset it for you because the malformed calls on our end still counted against it.
We're not unreasonable. :D

Re: What is the stance towards scrapers?

Hi muldjord! Allow me to clear up a few misconceptions. First and foremost, project keys are not issued yet, all the keys going out at the moment are personal keys, and are not intended to service more than a few thousand updates per month. Having people sync the entirety of the site on every new in...

Re: Remaining monthly allowance

If an end user makes a single API request, then the 1000 calls per month per unique IP isn't an issue. If that IS an issue, your end users are making way more than single calls, and you should be providing them a proper mirror. Just scraping "on demand" with no consideration for other users isn't so...

Re: Question about RetroPie

That's up to the individual scraper maintainers, I believe that's Aloshi for EmulationStation.
If there are issues implementing v2, we're happy to help devs to the best of our abilities.

Re: Remaining monthly allowance

That's how top-down distribution works. You mirror us, we limit you, your users mirror you, you limit your users. You don't let your users hammer the site because you can't or won't maintain a proper mirror. This whole idea that a centralised database is a permanent thing with infinite resources is ...

Re: Remaining monthly allowance

Ideally speaking, the app should draw from its own mirror, with API calls limited to syncing actually new data. That way, single-use "full syncs" could be used to bring the apps current, then API calls could keep them current, without forcing end-users to sync the entire site on every new installati...
