Hi. today i cant seem to use the scraper. it freezes for a minute or so then asks me to save a log file. all i can see in the log file is that the api key is invalid. i have tried with the default settings and with my own key and still get the same issue.

the only thing i have done since the last use was use a windows registry cleaner.

any help would be greatly appreciated.

Same here. Sometimes it goes through but it's SLOWWWWW like, not even worth trying to scrape info for one comic for 10 minutes slow.

I tried to login to comicvine, and was getting submission errors trying to pull up the page, so i'm guessing it's something on their side...

thank you so much for the reply. i was just about to completely uninstall comicrack and lose all my lists, plugin configs etc. i was almost sure i had done something while cleaning up my pc.

I just tried running the scraper, and everything seems to be working fine for me.

Are you guys using the latest version of the scraper (e.g. 1.0.77)?

code.google.com/p/comic-vine-scraper/

It's always a good idea to use the latest version, but it's especially important right now because Comic Vine changed some stuff during the last couple of months, so earlier versions of the scraper don't work properly anymore.

I think they banned his key again because people this morning were complaining. There's a thread over on the comicvine website with posts from within the last few hours about people experiencing problems.

Well, I think the site is having difficulties. If they're blaming the scraper they may take the API access offline in order to keep the website up and running. They're not going to let the API keep the website offline or let it keep taking the site offline. They may have also found a way to identify the scraper and block just that.

Do you get an error message? Does the program allow you to save out an application log file?

If so, can you post it here so that I can see what it says?

Tried again today, and it looks like it's going alot smoother. I hadn't had the chance to try different keys & whatnot. Just logged in from lunch to try and scraping is working & working faster! Are we sure comicvine wasn't upgrading their servers or somethin this weekend?

Oh and to answer your previous post, yeah, I immediately made sure I was on the latest version. You're quick to put out fixes, so I'm always trying to keep that plugin up to date! (& thanks for all your hard work!)
