We'll be permanently taking down the api.comicvine.com domain. Its been deprecated for 2 whole years. It'll go away real soon now so if you haven't migrated you'd better get on it son.

You should be using http://www.comicvine.com/api

@realitywarper: api.comicvine.com is old comicvine.com/api is new. The API itself is no different. We like new shinny things and hate the old stuff. Change is good. Embrace it.

Thanks for the heads up.

To all the people who are confused, an API is a set of functions and procedures that allow the creation of applications which access the features or data of an operating system, application, or other service.

Not really, unless you're using the API.

Any idea what is wrong with the API? Every time I click on it I get a "500: Internal Server Error".

It allows other sites to access and mirror the database here.
