Legacy Site & Updates - Second Update

Post by Zer0xFF » Sun Jun 10, 2018 2:43 am

Hi Everyone,

2 weeks ago we started redirecting http://thegamesdb.net/ traffic to http://legacy.thegamesdb.net/,
and now in 2 weeks time whats currently known as https://beta.thegamesdb.net/ would be moved to https://thegamesdb.net/


what does that mean to me?
  • if you're a user of the site and would like to add new games or correct some game details or add pictures, you'd need to create an account in our forum as the site login is now shared between the 2 site (main site and the forum).
Note to devs: the current beta api has a set request per api key, but that will be changed to a key based api limit in 2 weeks.

what will the changes be?
  • A maintenance window to change and move the data to the new domain
  • The legacy site will become read only (in 2 weeks) pending complete shutdown (Date:TBA)
  • Whats currently known as the beta site will take centre stage and become the new database which will be updated by users going forward
