    I was just using DTA to test some social bookmarking and I tried to login to my DBC account and apparently I'm banned. They sent me an email saying I was marking too many CAPTCHA's as incorrect when they were indeed correct. How is this my fault -- it's not like I'm manually sitting around and marking them wrong. I've contacted them via email hopefully they're able to resolve this as soon as possible as I really need the account.

    This is widely known. For example BMD, at the visual aid screen, has an option at the bottom of the page which says "I DO NOT want to reclaim bad images" and you would have to tick this in order to not get your account banned. I would suggest to email DBC support and let them know that you had no knowledge that the tool you where using is doing this and you found the option to disable the incorrect answer reclaim. They should set your account back right away.

    Don't worry, they usually correct this if it was in fact, you were doing nothing wrong. I read a a forum post with similar problem as yours and it didn't take long for the administrators to correct the problem. If my memory is correct they kindly asked the user to log in again within an hour prior to his last CAPTCHA submission to verify if the problem is addressed. Anyhow, good luck.:)

    Well I've emailed them and am waiting for a response. I really had no idea Digi Traffic Accelerator would get me banned from DBC lol. Well, I found out the software was not worth using anyways as a lot of the websites in there are not indexed in Google anymore -- plus a lot of the other websites are just dead. Does SenukeX have the same option to not reclaim bad images -- as I don't want to get banned again.

    Hi directaxcess,

    Please tell me (or PM if you prefer) your DBC account username in order to look into this.

    P.S: If you're not using the latest version of the software, I'd suggest to update it, as some customers have faced similar issues while using DBC with non-updated versions of that software (Digi's guys fixed the bug by one of their updates).

    Best Regards,

    I just recently unchecked the "Dont' reclaim images" option in UD -- we'll see how it goes. I think if you get banned though and they won't re-instate your account, you can fix the problem on your side and create a new account. We're not dealing with PayPal or Adsense here.

    I thought I was getting bad ones too. Turned out I had a problem with the API and they were being resolved correctly but the response was not being returned correctly in my software.

    Is there a way to do this in SenukeX so I don't get my account banned?

    Because they have banned you so there must be any reason for that. You should had follow their rules and regulations so that you can continue work with them. You should contact with them now.

    DBC is so cheap that I don't care about the incorrect CAPTCHA.

    Hi mego818,

    We faced some issues with the bans on July 16th (you can verify this on the''Updates'' section of our website), that's most likely the reason for the e-mail you received.

    ===================================================================================

    @sirjocky:
    I haven't heard from you = ) , please feel free to contact me / support if you're still facing issues with the service.

    Best Regards,

    Same thing happened to my DBC account when I was using DTA. DTA marks like 20% of the captchas as incorrect and DBC doesn't like it.

    I just emailed them and they unbanned me.

    Hi supaH,

    Just to clarify, we don't approve when a software marks many correct images as incorrectly solved, but it's one our policies to not bill for incorrectly claimed images, and we have no trouble doing so when the images are actually wrongly decoded ; )

    Regards,

    I sincerely apologize for the inconveniences this may have caused you.

    Could you please PM me your DBC username to look into this ASAP?

    Best Regards,
