    Hi,

    is it just me or is AutoStumble V3 not working for anyone else as well? I have a empty queue since 2 days, no stumbles since then and my Stumbleupon account was banned as well (got a new one quickly but the program still doesn´t work). I guess StumbleUpon has made an update and we need a new AutoStumble version because of that.

    Any words on that, Mark?

    I ran this program for about 2 months. I took precautions like skipping days, running for only 2 hours, shifting the times between stumbles and more. About a week ago I got a note saying my stumble account was banned. Before the ban I had around 700 stumbles given and got back about 450.

    I didn't see much of a difference in traffic/pr overall.

    Months ago this software worked for me. I'd stu*m*ble my url and then go and check in stu*m6leupon and all the sites I stu*mbled would show up there. Then a week later the links would show in G0091e.

    I again tried the software 2 weeks ago and it did not get me any results. It reported stum*bles given and stu*mbles received. But when I login to stu*m6leupon I see nothing. I tried with different accounts; switching url's etc. and still nothing.

    It works fine again.

    I guess Mark has adjusted the server (through wich the software works) to the new StumbleUpon system. However, StumbleUpon of course noticed everyone who was sending requests in the old format after the change and hence knew who was using AutoStumble and banned us.

    Well, just make new account on StumbleUpon and it works fine again.

    OK, another outage now. When starting AutoStumble I now get a Microsoft .NET Framework Error that tells me when it was doing an URL request it got a error 400 (Bad Request). If I click continue it goes into Autostumble but "Stumbles Given", "Stumbles Received", "Stumbling" (the URL it should Stumble for me), are all empty.

    Seems like the Server that AutoStumble uses to send it´s request to StumbleUpon is down.

    Anyone experiencing the same problems?

    If the content your stumbling is crap, then I don't see how this will really benefit you. The purpose is to set off a chain reaction gaining you more stumbles and traffic. But its pointless if nobody likes your content and it looks spammy.

    I see this as more a whitehat site tool than blackhat. It can be used to boost your quality whitehat sites.

    Yes, apologies - no idea what happened, server tripped out for a few hours when I was in bed.

    Quick update...

    I've uploaded a new version of Autostumble to the usual download URL. This version features the latest voting engine, but I've left out the new features until we stress test.

    The new engine ensures 100% of AutoStumble votes are counted as SU had a new auth method which seemed to be filtering a lot out.

    BOOM.

    It does what it says it does, gets you stumbles, will it get you a lot of real traffic? depends on the content, but its pretty cool when you run a site through the program and then stumbleupon starts sending it out as stumbles, i've gotten several 150-200 real hits in a day from stumbleupon when it happens

    but the program is very affordable and mark does great support so i recomend it.

    This software SO FAR is a ripoff. Do not buy it. First, it doesn't work, second it is useless -- it does not report stumbles on stumbleupon, I'm a member and I know this to be true since two of my sites aere reviewed and stumbled and they have no where the number of stumbles the software claims I have.

    Plus, if only stumblers see this data -- what's the point any way?

    Money wasted.

    I am a long time user of this product.

    Anyway... I tried downloading and running Version 4... but when I run the newly downloaded program it is still showing at Version 3.

    Any ideas?

    markdigerati was usually pretty active here... wonder what happened. His script really used to work. So did StumbleBot... but StumbleUpon really got tough with spamming... its much harder to do now.... and the returns are really not all that impressive.
