    I notice some WIP threads where Xion (bot) posts notices when the story gets an update on its hosting site, e.g. FFN or AO3. I couldn't find info anywhere about how to request such updates: is there a way to do it? From a technical standpoint I'd be interested to know how Xion/Scryer manages to even notice updates on FFN, which involves dealing with a Cloudflare captcha. I know that Fichub goes to considerable lengths to work around that captcha. On AO3 there is no captcha, so tracking is easier. Thanks.
