[QUESTION] how can I get the current handle of people while calling contest.Standings method?

Revision en2, by SadSadBlueMann, 2022-01-03 22:41:40


I'm trying to write a python script to extract certain users from a contest's standings(Hello 2022 in this case), but most of the time I get an error because some people have changed their handle ever since that contest. I am combining contest.standings and user.info methods to extract the users that satisfy the given conditions. are there any other routes to achieve this goal or am I doing something wrong?

EDIT : in this case(Hello 2022), the user MiracleFaFa has changed their handle from Retired_MiFaFaOvO to MiracleFaFa.
