    Don't forget, you can use any of the backup URLs:

    de-captcher
    de-captcher inf0
    decaptcher-reloaded

    They do list them every time you log into their website in case there's trouble with the main domain. Pay attention folks!

    DeCaptcher seems to get an unfair bad rep on forums, mainly for poor response times and inaccuracy, but I've got to say, I've used them for over a year now and I've always got good response times and the accuracy has been very good - I seem to get 95%+ hit rate. I don't pay any premium rates either. So as far as I'm concerned it's a very good service and don't deserve the bad press they seem to get.

    Not sure, I'm using submiteaze that uses the API. Put in the new URL and voila! Sprang into action.

    1. Goto: decaptcher - reloaded
    (remove spaces; add d0tc0m at end)

    2. Log-in

    3. Change your Bookmarking Demon settings to reflect the settings there.


    I agree that they could have communicated about the downtime on the main site, but BigBadBurrow is right, it's a good service. I asked their support for help and I was talking by email for over 2 days. They finally sorted it.
