Hey, I have a little script that checks my URL “https://api.patreon.com/user/$mynumberhere” to monitor for certain changes, and just tonight it threw an error; I looked into it and my wget call to that URl is now returning a “ERROR 403: Forbidden.” This doesn’t happen when I visit the URL in a Firefox window, even a Private window in FF. The page loads normally. What gives? Are you banning wget?
The API is losing support. There have been threads and topics about that here.
I like commisseration as much as the next person, but in this thread I was hoping to have a conversation, ideally with Patreon staff, about a malfunction of their site. Or with anybody else who had noticed the same thing, or had not noticed the same thing yet, and maybe hear from anyone who figured out a solution or a work-around.
Does this situation still continue?
There was a minor issue with Patreon.com yesterday, this may have had an effect on the api as well.
All better now! Thanks!
Great to hear!
You can check the status of Patreon services from status page above when your app has a hiccup. Any issue that appears for Patreon Website or Developer API on the list may affect your API-using app or website (like WordPress).
