Notes and Star Rating not scraping properly

Recommended Posts

I noticed that if a game scrapes incorrectly the first time, it doesn't change the notes or star rating once you fix it.

I've attached an image where FFVII originally scraped as ReBoot, and kept some info once it was corrected.

I just added this game about a week ago so it was on LB 10+

I think originally things were implemented this way because the Notes field was sometimes used for manual Notes, and folks didn't want it overwritten. If you clear out that field and then scrape it again, you should get the notes from the database. Per the star rating, I *think* it will update the community rating, but perhaps not the user's rating.

Thanks, I'll give it a try!
