Requesting API Access

Post by Namachieli » Mon Feb 04, 2019 3:18 am

I'm working on a personal project to fill out some rom lists with more complete info. Your database has a large amount of the data im looking for, and you even have an API so i dont have to write a gnarly scraping script.

Specifically, im looking to complete data from lists I posted to my github account - https://github.com/namachieli/romdbs

I would be accessing data such as Publisher, Genre, and Player Count, Rating, etc for the linked systems as well a few more systems I'll be taking on. My list on github would be then updated for anyone to utilize, with credit to the data sources.

Thank you for your time and your help. Hopefully you will allow me to utilize the excellent work you have done here.
