    What is Scryer built on/with? Do you have a Git repo for it?

    Yeah, I must have typed this in my sleep. Swear I included more than that. There used to be a search tool pre-scryer that was based off of author favorites. Cant' remember the name, or if its still active.

    If you're interested in contributing, hit me up on IRC or via PM. I'd be happy to point you to some easy starter projects. :)

    Got an issue suddenly, (worked a few days ago normally) excluding 'OC' as a character, does not work anymore.

    edit: NVM fixed it, I only typed OC and did not look into the dropdown menu. Apparently there was some kind of bug that the characters from HP were still selected. Deleting and reapplying the fandom fixed it.

    edit2: When going back from a search to the selection menu, this issue reapplys itself. (Fandom reverting back to HP in character selection)

    I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong... For any search I make, the newest story was last updated six days ago. Anyone else having this issue or am I missing something?

    It's not just you. Harry Potter stories at least don't show up newer then six days ago.

    I think that may be to do with how frequently Scryer updates its content: if it updates once a week then anything newer than that isn't visible yet.

    Shitter's unblocked. The stories will begin to flow again.

    It runs incremental updates hourly, but sometimes it fails in such a way I need to manually touch it. In this case, the crawl server (separate from DLP) was restarted by Digital Ocean during a run. Each time the crawler started up it thought it was already running and shut down.

    On mobile, I can't actually deselect/remove Harry Potter from the fandom list. I also can't select another fandom by tapping it, only by typing the name and hitting enter. Pixel C tablet running Android 8.1.0 and Chrome.

    Do you get the mobile experience of a native Android popup, or the web experience?

    It seems that it's stuck again, nothing new for the last 4 days.

    Any way to group all the different OC as... OC? Instead of the multitude of separate selections.

    That's not even a fifth, but I got tired of selecting them.

    I could probably add a "meta-OC" that auto-expands, but they are actually all different characters in the backend unfortunately. I'll see what I can do.

    How viable would a tag for OC be? Like with the slash/harem/multi ones.

    Wouldn't be overly difficult. That's something I'll add.
