deviantArt sucks on so many levels

Postby Arcane_Scroll » Wed May 21, 2014 12:42 pm

Turns out most of the problems I'm having with the site when adding media is dA's fault. They are blocking the server because, get this, I'm using their public API. The one they ask people to use. So, now I have to manually add every dA media by hand the old fashioned way. Tumblr, YouTube, Derpiboo.ru, InkBunny, hell, even Facebook are all working fine.

Seriously dA, how far stuck in the 90's does your crap site need to be? :flutterrage:

Okay, between being in non-stop pain, preparing for surgery, and deviantArt being annoying, I am running at a crawl. I had an idea, a Greasemonkey/Userscript that would scrape the info I need and send it to a url. Sadly, I haven't had time to work on one (JS isn't my strong point), but it is planned. This would eliminate issues I have with dA.

If any Javascript folks out there want to help, I could sure use it :)
