OK, the SGF conversion is complete. All games are available for download as SGF files or as JSON files. My current organization is to have two downloads available–one organized by date, and one by username. The SGF collection is about 11GB compressed.
Current hosting is at za3k - OGS Go game collection on my home server.
OK, I uploaded it to Internet Archive as well OGS 2021 collection of Go games : Zachary Vance / OGS : Free Download, Borrow, and Streaming : Internet Archive
Can we have a public database dump of all the games up until 2021 (now) from the admins? I would be happy to host it indefinitely. I run my own webserver, can make a torrent, and can put it on archive.org (Internet Archive).
SGF format is probably useful for the most people. We would probably want to separate human-human, human-bot, and bot-bot games, but that could be done after the dump if needed.
Same request as in (but this link is dead)
and later in
Othewise, I’m going to scrape game JSON + SGFs from the API, but that’s not really the best use of resources for either side. It looks like it would take two years with the rate limits in place, among other problems.
Related, documentation on throttling, i.e. “Please keep requests under X/second” would be good in the API docs.
