So in other words, adding releases is now pretty much impossible, yay. I sent Dan42 a PM about the release scraper recently, hopefully it gets hit attention, but he hasn't posted in a week now, so who knows when we'll see any of these issues get fixed.

It occurs to me that this may be down to the other site issues; something related to the change of URL etc. may have triggered anti-DOS measures on the sites in question.

Is everyone else still having problems adding releases, even after the domain has been recovered? I've been trying to add some releases using Barnes & Noble and Amazon, but neither have been working for me.

As BigOnAnime said a couple posts ago, adding releases is now pretty much impossible for regular contributors. I still get "could not fetch page" and "not a valid page" errors, which is unfortunate since missing releases are growing. Sad

Looks like I'll have to shoot Dan another PM and hope he reads it (he seems to not have read the one I sent a month ago), or attempt to post in the "Bugs & Technical Questions" section of the forum as he seems to not be looking at this section.

@horseradish Well, that sucks. I guess we just have to wait and hope someone with the power to do something will actually fix it. Sad

If the release has an encyclopedia page you can actually add a sort of place-holder entry to your own collection list to help you keep track of some of what's missing by using the drop down boxes. It won't add anything to the ANN Encyclopedia though just your list.

For DVDs/BDs you could always try FilmAF

Well... phooey. Since it doesn't look like there's been much discourse in over a year at this point, are releases officially dead-for-good (at least until 2.0,) or does functionality come-and-go, and maybe things will work better when retailers aren't getting slammed by Black Friday traffic?

Ah, yes... good reminder.

This needs to be added.

anime#12542

Also is it alright if I request the adding of many of the missing releases since the scraper broke in summer 2017, and point out the newer ones as solicitations from the various publishers come out? With RightStuf delisting many releases when they're no longer available, adding them properly will prove to be a bit more challenging when the scraper eventually gets fixed (can't believe it's already been almost two years since it broke).

[Edit]This needs to be linked to these two releases.
