Can't ping decaptcher.com or their api...been about 40 minutes now.
It's been down for hours now
The only thing that I can think of is that they are being attacked or got shut down...
It was a slow strangle death. For about 2 hours they were fading like a dictator meeting his death
Yes indeed I just got an automated message from my Twitter software saying decatpcher is indeed down.
any news why its down?
Don't forget, you can use any of the backup URLs:
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.
Sorry, as I'm new I wasn't able to post the URLs in full; the top and bottom URLs are coms, the middle one is info
It is opening for me on chrome
How to use it in bookmarking demon now without http post api?
What to put into "server" and "port" field?
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)
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.
