Maybe @jslack can see if your accounts need repairing or something similar.

Hey there @tricky_dicky

Looks like your account had multiple api keys generated for it (which is a bug), causing an issue. Sorry about that! It's been resolved. Go and check your http://www.giantbomb.com/api/ and use the API key listed on that page. Let me know if there are any other issues. Again, apologies.

@phello@nukem4n Sorry guys, looks like you had the same issue tricky did. I've fixed your accounts. Please check the http://www.giantbomb.com/api/ and note the API key on there. That's the key you're going to want to use.

Sorry for the issues guys.

I've also made a patch going forward, so that it should fix any other accounts that users haven't reported. That patch should be live on Monday (Jan 12, 2015, or so).

Hi, I got a similar problem, I guess. I can't read any article, just watch videos, as long as I'm logged into the site. Every news page I open results in a 500...

@ryancking: Hey there, looks like you don't have a API key generated. When you go to http://www.giantbomb.com/api/ you'll need to generate an API key.

@krabat0903: You should be good to go. Let me know.
