Hey bombadiers, I've been getting into anime recently (still pretty new to anime in general). In the past few weeks I've binged through Hunter x Hunter, Trigun, Black Lagoon, Baccano, The Devil is a Part-Timer, KonoSuba, and now I'm working on Steins;Gate. I've added a shitload of stuff to MyAnimeList, but if you guys have any solid recommendations, hit me up!
I'm using Giant Bomb's API to help me populate a database for my databases class, but I'm running into a little bit of a problem. When I search for a game, no results are returned. I had it working perfectly last night, so I don't believe it's my code that's having an issue. Are there usage limits with the API? I've probably searched ~3000 times since last night.
I should also mention that it's not an issue 100% of the time. It seems to be intermittent. Five searches will be successful, then a few will be unsuccessful. 95% will be successful, then every search will fail for the next 10 minutes.
Clearly those games should be returning at least one result.
Here's how I'm constructing my search key:
var address = new Uri("http://www.giantbomb.com/api/search/?api_key=[api_key]&format=json&query=\"" + gameName + "\"&resources=game");
The error for one of my requests changed from "OK" to "Rate limit exceeded," so I think I found my issue!
I ended up just setting my script to sleep for 15 minutes every time I get status code 107 then playing Far Cry 4 while it ran.
