Thanks. I was a bit mislead and thought it was the date the book entry was created in Calibre.

I'm unlikely to add that.

First, "Get Story URLs from Web Page" runs in the foreground, blocking Calibre from doing anything else. I'm not interested in re-architecting it to do otherwise.

Second, we're always walking a fine line between making it easy for users and not generating too much load for servers.

I feel like 'get all the story URLs from this page' is acceptable, but 'get all the story URLs from this arbitrarily long list of pages'--with the stated intention of downloading all of them--is going too far.

I still feel bad about the guy who used the CLI version to try and download all of ffnet. I wonder if that contributed to where we are now. And how many others did that that I never heard about.

Now I am curious as to whether the bot attacks FictionPress mentioned on their twitter was actually people scraping the entire site.

Quick question: For AO3, is it possible for there to be a delay between the story updating on site and FFF being able to fetch the changes?

I recently updated the summary of one of my own AO3 fics. Immediately after updating and seeing the changes live on site I queued up an overwrite-always (also had some typo fixes). It downloaded but had the old summary. A few minutes later I tried again and it downloaded with the new summary.

Just trying to figure out what happened. Doubt it's a normal situation to update a fic some 60 seconds after the changes go live, so should I wait a few minutes in the future?

I've never seen that behavior, but it's certainly possible in theory--especially if you've seen it happen.

I can think of several scenarios, but I'm just guessing.
  • The AO3 site may have a cluster of web servers that don't all get updates at exactly the same time (a less common problem these days, I believe).
  • AO3 may serve logged in users more recent data, or just from different servers on a different schedule as above.
  • AO3 may update data as seen from author page vs story /navigate page at slightly different times.

If you can prove that the metadata from a different page than the story /navigate page is reliably newer, I might change the adapter to use that instead.

But there's no point (IMO) if the metadata is updated (on a different page) before the chapter list.
