Is there a copy of the database available as a mySQL, CSV, Access DB, or other database format?
I want to do some data mining and would prefer not to abuse the site and scrape the pages.
No, we don't have anything like that here. But don't go site-scraping or you'll end up getting banned from accessing the site at all.
You might like to try veekun.com, they publish their database (which I've used for a few sections here).
