Hi,

I remember, there were difficulties with ComicVine. API limits, blocks and stuff like that. They offered their database file, should somebody want to create an alternative to ComicVine. Some folks here at the forum started looking into it. I think they even had a preliminary server. Did this lead to some result? I do not remember the thread this was being discussed in and, after a year (or so) without using ComicRack I lost track.

It became a low priority after the API change to only allow once every second. Basically, the Scraper can't really trigger the auto-ban anymore now that it matches their rules (at least until they change them again).

I believe there was an issue regards them not producing change reports so maintaining an accurate a copy of their database would be pretty difficult if not impossible without them doing a lot of the work. So their suggestion that Comicrack should utilise its own database was a red herring.
