ABOUT IsThereAnyDeal

When the price is right, you will play all night.

We compare current games' prices for more than 20 stores across several regions as well as various bundles and other special deals. We keep a price history for you, so you can see how often the game goes on sale and what are the historical lowest prices.

If you don't want to miss a sale, add your games to the Waitlist. You can sync it with your Steam wishlist (and some others, too) and tell us when you want to receive notifications via email.

And if you have huge number of games and often forget which games you own, we can help, too! Use our Collection to keep track of your games and we'll spare you of disappointment when you realize you bought the game in the last sale. Similar to Waitlist, you can also sync your library from a few stores and easily add content of the bundles.

When scrapers scrape scrapers
GameCamper is stealing IsThereAnyDeal's data

Each request you make at GC goes to ITAD, where it is parsed and displayed as if it was theirs. There is no mention of IsThereAnyDeal as source of data, moreover the affiliate links, that ensure ITAD may continue its service, are being replaced. Not only that, when GC was advertised on reddit and someone posted ITAD link, wiseindy (the author) said that ITAD was the inspiration for GameCamper. Yeah, if only that.

I can prove it to you. There are 3 types of requests that are coming from GameCamper to ITAD: 1. search for deals, 2. search for nondeals, 3. game details. These requests are also the reason when detail of the game on GameCamper has these "hacking" effect until he gets parsed result. It is so you don't feel like there's nothing happening.

Here's an example one for details:

And here is one for deals search:

You can see that he is using Yahoo's Query Language product to get and parse the content, which makes it harder to detect. Yahoo statest that:
Originally posted by Yahoo:

which wiseindy is clearly violating, and thus I have messaged Yahoo's abuse line.

If that's not enough, I have started to send him incorrect links. He does some URL manipulation, because he is changing referals, but I have managed to make it so that all requests are going to ITAD now instead. Users will see a note about why they ended up on ITAD. I don't expect this will last long though, once he's aware of it wiseindy will surely change the code to fix these links.

We are not against competition
Right now, GameCamper is not big (judging by my today's logs). In fact I am probably giving it more exposure with this post. I am not against it per se and I don't want GameCamper to close down. Competition is good. We like it. Thanks to competition ITAD is what it is today, and soon it will be even better. But lets compete on features and algorithms, alright? I provide API[docs.itad.apiary.io] if someone wants to use ITAD's data, but there are some rules that I want you to adhere to. If you can't do that, please do not use our data.

If wiseindy wants to contact me, he surely can: on reddit I'm /u/asd33, you can see my Steam profile here or email me at info@isthereanydeal.com

there was a message earlier about scheduled downtime to get ready for the steam christmas sale, so I imagine that's what is going on.
