For anyone editing at the CV wiki, nothing will stick until they have finished migration. Possibly as late as Tuesday, but probably sooner.

We will also find out what happens to the scraper.

Ahh, it's the perfect time for me to get back from vacation, then. On one hand I don't really want to spend all of next week trying to fix the scraper to work with a new API...but on the other hand, a new API might address some of the bugs and problems in the old API...so that would be good.

It worked fine for me last night, although it showed a quick message to confirm for half a second before it started scraping on a few comics. I never hit the button it told me to though because it was so fast but it worked just fine.

Live or not, latest scraping attempts have been unsuccessful. Guess I may actually have to get some work done around here.

Yes, scraping fails. The error message says that the CV database cannot be reached. So I still have hope that they only closed access to the web service during migration and hopefully on Tuesday all will work as before.

Just found this at the developers forum on the CV site:

"I ported GB's new API over to Comic Vine and it's currently in Beta right now at beta.comicvine.com/api. The changelog can be found at this forum topic. I tried to make it as backwards compatible as possible, but there have been a few field removals due to the way the new wiki is structured. On an up-note, the search call accepts unicode searches and sorting/filtering is available on the list calls."

more specific info about the changes here

No scrapper is a life-or-death situation :)

Especially in two days time, since wednesday's are the best days of the week. Fingers crossed for Cory!

Yikes. With my ComicTagger app, the old API is giving 404, and the new beta API has changed in ways that they've not described, crippling functionality.

Cory, please chime in on the API board with any problems you're having too!
