    Decaptcher is the biggest piece of shit out there.

    The only time I can really use it is in the morning, and at night while I sleep.

    Constantly get the Decaptcher Server Overloaded error.

    Exactly, with the amount of customers they have, I think it's about time for an upgrade of some sort.

    they let it clog up so you'll pay to be a 'vip', meaning you'll be bidding against others for the first captcha filled/

    they think they are smart for this because theyre raising their rates to those of their competitors by creating a bidding system, but its actually obvious and a bad business move

    basically theyre saying pay us 2$ for 1k captchas, but we might not fill them out until a hour later cause you haven't bid up others. So its not actually 2$ a captcha anymore. They could easily solve this 'overload' problem with a better server lol everything worked fine until they implemented their bidding system

    try deathbycaptcha they charge 1.75 per 1k and i dont think they have a bidding system

    Problem is you cannot even reach their website, api, nada.. times out on a traceroute.. its more like they are getting a DDOS or something.
