The TVRage situation
As you may know: We've been using the TVRage API to get all our data (the airdates, episodes,.. ). Their website has been offline for a week by now, so we're preparing for the worst. At this moment Jelle is developing an alternative. We just wanted to let you know that there is no loss of data (and there won't be). All the existing data are safe in our database.
Please let us know if you have any questions about this.
PS. We'll be replying on the mails we received about becoming a moderator / developer this week. Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you haven't done so already!
-- Update Saturday 10 October --
I (Jelle) am swamped with work at the moment. Will be for another week probably. I secretly hoped tvrage would have come back online but it seems like it's dead for good.
This means that I have to completely rewrite the importer and figure out how to map existing data to new external data.
This takes a long time because that part of the application was designed for speed and is very complex. It would take me several days to change, optimize and test with live data.
Currently I just have no time at all to do this. I'm working 15h + daily at my regular job to finish a big project before its deadline.
I might be able to start work on this update tomorrow for a couple of hours. But it being finished, tested and deployed will take at least a week or two.
