(Resolved) Signin issues
«  »Last edited
Logging in seems to be malfunctioning lately. I can't log in on a spare computer (though everything I've logged in previously on is fine.) I've referred 2 friends over here to Lestrades in the last few days as well, and unfortunately they're seeing the same issue, even after double checking their steam settings.
Predominantly interested in rpg, metroidvanias, online coop games. Current higher priority games: Tabletop Simulator, Magicka 1 or 2 (multiple keys), Wasteland 2: Director's Cut, Shadowrun: Dragonfall Director's Cut, and Project Highrise.

Okay this is fixed...
This is due to an internal change at Valve that, when requesting profile information, returned a https URL instead of their traditionally http-powered profile URL. My code wasn't accounting for that, being too restrictive.

Basically, just adding a single question mark fixed it... Oops.

Thanks for the quick fix! I've gotta deal with 3rd party apis in my day job, I know that pain :(

Yeah.. Well Lestrade's is chock-full of API communication & scrapers:
- a scraper for some Steam data (wishlist, library...)
- multiple Steam APIs for login, profile info...
- a scraper for the Barter game database
- a mini-scraper for $0 games
- API calls from Steamspy (which AFAIK is MIA these days. I'd have to check. It doesn't return any errors so I'd have to check manually.)
- a scraper for ITAD bundles

And possibly more...
All of these are subject to stop working overnight if some HTML or API details are modified without warning. The goal is simply to be specific enough to target the data I want to retrieve, and vague enough to accomodate for changes.
It's not as fun as it sounds. :P
