It seems that the API no longer requires clients to provide a whitelisted user-agent. Can anyone else confirm?

.NET developers: my library for getting anime lists has a NuGet package now. Search for MalApi.

how can I get my own user Agent approved 'cause the webform isn't available anymore

Cool! I got my user-agent and IP approved. It was faster than I expected. About 12 hours. :)

Oh, you used Regex.

I already have my own wrapper class for MAL's API so I only looked at the xml sanitation code and it worked well for me. Thanks!

LordHighCaptain | Dec 8, 2013 1:39 PM
Sylpheed, I wrote a .NET library for accessing malappinfo.php that takes care of the XML parsing for you, including dealing with malformed XML that malappinfo generates if a user's tags contain certain XML characters.

Give it a try and see if it solves your problems.

Sylpheed | Dec 8, 2013 7:27 AM
I'm getting this kind of exception when dealing with XML returned with malappinfo.php API. It happens whenever there's a weird character (like in ChäoS;HEAd) in the XML.

"Reference to undeclared entity 'eacute'". I've read a few hours about DTD and tried different solutions I can grab. Unfortunately, I'm still stuck with this problem.

How do you go over this? I'm using C# .NET but I think this problem is language agnostic based on what I've researched.

Somehow it's working after I change the HTTP library I'm using. Please ignore my previous comment. Thanks.
