Ladies and geveryone else, welcome to the MSPA-to-Eagle-Time Post Scraping Machine Device! I've been slaving over this hot pile of regular expressions for ages, and now it's ready to go.

Want to get your MSPAFA ported over? Now's the time! Been waiting to post in a Grand Battle until they came over? Get ready to write! The tool's been written, adjusted, tweaked, tested, fixed, lost, found, subjected to public inquiry, lost again, and finally buried in soft peat for three months and recycled as firelighters, so there's just one thing left to do: set it loose!

Here's how you can get a thread scraped over:
  1. Find the thread ID. (It's the number after "showthread.php?" in the MSPA URL. For example, "showthread.php?12345-Pretty-Great-Thread" has thread ID 12345.)
  2. Post in this thread with the name of the thread, the thread ID, and the Eagle Time subforum where it needs to go. (Don't give it to me on IRC, I'll just lose it.)
  3. Wait for me to run the scraper. (If you're in a rush, find me on IRC and poke me about it. If I'm around and not busy, I should be able to take care of it fairly quickly.)
  4. Enjoy your thread!

(Now, just to note: It's not a perfect process. Because of the way it works and because of some formal mathematical stuff, nested tags can cause it to bug out and not work properly. There are some situations which just need to be handled manually, and that is, unfortunately, essentially unavoidable.)

If you've got any questions, I'll answer them here. As for the first wave of post-scrapings, they can happen in the next hour (or maybe two) until I head to sleep, and then I'll tackle more in the morning. Let's get to it!

(Note: I'll be grabbing all the Grand Battles I can think of automatically, but if it's not a canon or intermission battle, it's probably worth posting here just to be safe.)

Hooray!

I already PMed some requests a while back, but here they are for convenience.

These go in Forum Adventures:

The Pointless Adventures of Nopor Puss - 24972
The Further Pointless Adventures of Nopor Puss - 25013
Bee Puns Text Adventure - 27409
Duct Tape - 42329
ZooStuck - 52739

All my other adventures have either been moved here manually or are abandoned.

This goes in Games:
WHO ARE THE REAL MONSTERS Mafia (Malkyfia) - 52560
The game is finished now, but we might as well have the whole game here for archival purposes.

Boom! First batch of threads moved, just like that!

A couple of bugs of note:
  • It looks like sometimes accents... break stuff unexpectedly. I don't really know where in the pipeline that happens, so I'll take a look tomorrow and see if I can't fix that. (I'll look into fixing any posts that have had that happen to them when I do.)
  • Font tags look to be broken sometimes. I'll look at those tomorrow as well.

Also, I didn't bring over the GBs yet because I'm going to do those all in one big batch tomorrow. It takes time to scrape, and I'm dead on my feet tonight.

Anyway, keep requests coming! Tomorrow's going to be a big, scrapey day, so be ready!

I'm hoping nobody minds that I dual update at the MSPAForums as well as here until the MSPAFA awards happen. Is that okay?

I'm going to be updating it soon and would rather do it here than MSPAFA.

On the subject of GB-related things, there's an adventure I think we'd all be glad to see here.
