I haven't used it in a while, and I know the Comic Vine website was switched from comicvine.com to comicvine.gamespot.com (again, I don't know when this happened). But, I am not able to scrape anything. It complains with an error about not being able to contact the Comic Vine database. I have verified that my API key is good, and installed. Anything I'm missing?

what version of the scrapper are you using? The latest on deals with all the problems that arose from switching to gamespot.

Thanks, I will look for a new one. Mine is probably old, now that I think about it.

Got the newest version I could find, and no joy. Any other suggestions?

Turns out Comicrack had a caches version somewhere. I deleted everything, and reinstalled both. It works now.

First make sure you have reinstalled the latest version of the scraper, then triple check your API is entered correctly into the script, and then if they both check out, contact ComicVine and ask them.

It sounds like you have more than one key being flagged up from your IP address. Which is a new concept as far as I am concerned. It may be worth pointing out that not everyone has a static IP address. More and more websites and applications assume this but it is just not true.

Did you do the checks / reinstall above? Is there anything else that you use (app or script), that also uses the CV API?

Personally I would uninstall the scraper, delete the files manually, download the latest version and reinstall.

i've seen this error myself as well when i checked to see i wasn't going over any limits when scraping alot of commics. it sais banned but i can use the site just fine and the commic scraper still works so i'd say you can safely ignore this for now unless the scraper itself starts complaining

Interesting. I don't bother to check this very often so I didn't think to see if I get that message. In general one doesn't need to check that page.
