i just saw the html source for abridged i think you can def parse it manually tho
like char by char lol
dunno about soupy juice or wtv
but itll be easier to copy paste than doing that xD

char by char?
how would that work?
tbh yes you probably can do it my point was it would be such a specific parsing script that you might as well just do it by hand

yeah and then it still wouldn't be worth it because if you write a very specific parser you would need to update it every time the site is updated
which is the problem.
the site doesn't have a consistent enough html format to parse it generally

lol
send them better html since itll be more convenient for us
honestly if they accepted we could easily put in 'backdoors' to change the rules ;)
well assuming they accepted AND blindly deployed it
