    I've ran SB 3 times in the last week. I am running it against WP blogs with proxies.

    The last 3 times that I've ran it, it runs to the final blog post and hangs there. I've let it sit for up to 24 hours, and it still just sits there, at 1 post to do. It never times out. Therefore, it never runs the "slow method". I'm then forced to cancel it.

    Any idea how I can fix this?

    I have Comcast Cable. Their fastest speed.


    It's something to do with scrapebox. It's 1 blog, every time, NEVER times out. And it's a different blog every time. I have all of the time outs set to whatever the default for scrape box is. I never changed them.

    That's weird. Do you have it set to auto start the slow poster? And with or w/o decaptcher set up?

    I don't have decaptcher set up (wish I did, just no $$ to pay for em yet).

    I dont think I have auto start slow post on; I dont see where that options is. And I don't remember ever turning that on.

    That's fine on the decaptcher part, just trying to isolate variables and help you out.

    Under the Settings menu are some options for the slow poster, including whether to skip it for WP and MT (one option) or to start it automatically (another option).

    Also, what version of sbox?

    Yeah, I appreciate the help :)

    No settings are checked under settings. Only "confirm delete" is checked under options. I don't have any addons clicked. I started the commenting with roughly 250 tested proxies. I was commenting on 989 blogs. I was posting to Wordpress.

    V1.12.7. I just noticed there's a 1.12.9 up. So I'll run that tonight and see if that fixed something.


    The only thing that I remember changing from when it was working to when it hangs on 1 indefinitely is:
    Updated to 1.12.7 from a version 1 month old.
    added new commands like %blogurl% and %website% to comments

    Program is updated and improved every couple of days, mine has never done this not even on earlier versions. Sounds like maybe you have a dodgy copy. You did pay for it didn't you?

    They have en excellent support staff, make sure you e-mail them. Unless you didn't pay for it then you deserve to have those problems.

    Also I was having a bit of trouble with sb a couple days ago. I just unzipped it again into a different folder & it works fine now.

    Well, I'm at my work, so I couldnt do real testing, but I updated to 1.12.9, turned off proxies (at work, no choice with their setup here) and ran a blast with 58 blogs.

    It worked fine.

    So either it's an issue with the proxies I'm using (not paying for them, but they are decent and anon) or it was the 1.12.7 version. I'm leaning towards my proxies since nobody else seems to have this issue.
