are scrapebox's built in proxy sources mostly useless now?

    It's been months since I ran the proxy harvester. I used to be able to get ~10-20 proxies after running the harvester, however the last two times I tried doing so it hasn't found any working proxies at all. Is that normal now?

    Uh, I don't get as many as I used to either, but I think I come up with around 80 or so. I do have a few other sources. Ill try turning those off and see what it turns out

    Edit: with just using the sb sources I only got 17 good proxies

    I have several other sources that I pull from at the same time. I've noticed a big drop in proxies that pass lately. May very well be from the built in sources. Hopefully they come up with an alternative. I imagine there are just too many people on the system to sustain everyone.

    lol well I get 100 - 200 when I harvest and test.
    I then export to main list and retest again and maybe get half the original amount one more wash will get me about 25 decent proxies

    Take a guess
    Just harvested and tested. My results:

    NOTE: Duplicates removed. (Originally 212)
    Harvested: 4744
    Working: 63
    Time to test: 11:18 minutes
    With other sources I usually get 500-1000 working proxies

    And how can I make SB to perform faster?

    I have not had any luck lately either. (don't want to use private proxies for scraping)
