We are no longer scraping the Exalted forum. We are going to be down for a while. Sorry for the inconvenience.
I'm unable to post on the forums for some reason: The short summary is that the method used to retrieve the latest topics is being blocked. I think its being blocked specifically for the scraping engine only. I was able to determine that in other cases, ( for example another machine) it works as intended/expected.
If its being blocked then obviously its a hindrance to the forums enough that they had to implement a block of this type. Scraping already is a gray area, and I do not want to test the limits of Onyx Path patience. They have been kind enough so far. Technically I can find ways to work around this, but that's not in the spirit of being a good of being a good community member. Its better to just not scrape the forums that to play games to find hacks and work-arounds. I'll leave the data up for a little while until I wind down the account and hosting environment.
