Hi,

i am using Friendsblaster for quite a while now and myspace asked me to solve a CAPTCHA every 10th message or so.
but since yesterday it gives me a CAPTCHA on every single friend request i send out! i tried different accounts on different internet-connections (thus on different IPs), but nothing helps.

is anybody else experiencing something similiar? any tips on this?
 
Who were you sending friend requests to? I've found that around 90% of popular folks/bands require captcha entry for friend requests.

it think that's not the reason, because i enabled the friendblaster option "skip profiles that require CAPTCHA". so normally friendblaster would just ignore these profiles and jump to the next one.
 
Are you clearing your cookies as well? I know when I tried using FBP to mass add users I would get Captchas every 20 or see sends, then after about 100 accounts it would come more frequently...didn't really try switching up accounts as the next day the Captcha limit would reset and I would be good again...but if you have a different IP and account, they must be tracking you somewhere else.

wickid, thanks for the tip - but doesn't help either. maybe they just changed their captcha settings on a global level and things are getting harder now...
 
Try this, because I had the same problem until I figured out what was going on!!!

If you have to enter the captcha every single time now, then you must not have that many "gathered ids" anymore...

lets say you gather 200 ids and send out friend requests with the option to "skip" any profiles that require you to enter "catcha", YOU MUST REMEMBER that every id you skip is placed at the bottom of the "gathered ids" list, and will start to reappear once all of the non-captcha-required friend requests are completed. These SKIPPED id's are NOT DELETED from your "gathered ids" list like the successfully added friend requests are.

So when you successfully add about 100-150 friends and your "gathered ids" list gets down to about 50, those ids are the ids that were skipped because they REQUIRE CAPTCHA!! Now fbp will keep trying to add these "useless" friends and keep asking you to enter the captcha

When this starts to happen, simply clear your gathered list and go search for more FRESH id's!!!

I hope this helps you because this was driving me crazy until I figured out what was wrong.
