Are you scraping fimfiction?

Postby Wirepony » Wed Apr 18, 2012 11:53 am

I've seen some interesting things pop up when I submitted my fic to fimfiction, specifically, it almost immediately showed up here. Same with my next chapter upload. Are you automatically scraping fimfiction for FO:E content, or are you just adding things manually?

Kinda both at the moment. As soon as I get an email that a story is updated, I import it automatically. But, new stories are added as I see them. I usually search once a day. It will be fully automated for updates soon, but new stories will still be semi-manual to prevent trolling.

Oh, and I don't scrape the site anymore now that I found out they have an API. Much better now :)
