HOL Lock Out

I was doing some data gathering and sorting out my ADFs last weekend and I was using HOL
to gain the information I required, all was going well until I got a Lock Out and a code to
enter, then some sort of threat regarding being locked out indefinitely or something.

Because of this I am a bit concerned about using the HOL for any length of time, as I do
from time to time.

I know the HOL could be used by people other than members here, but could not members here
have some sort of access with no lock out ?

Just an idea.

I think there may be some sort of restriction on the number of searches you can make per day.

I have no experience of this myself, but I seem to remember reading something like that in an old "Guess the Screenshot" EAB Competition thread.

You get that warning after 100 detail views. RCK has to tell if there is a real limit, but IIRC he said that you will never get 'locked out' as long as you enter the correct code.

Hi guys,

There was in fact a definitive ban after 10 lock. But I just removed it
The only system active is now the lockscreen (with human picture code) after 100 daily games view.

Cheers.

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_VARIABLE in /var/www/hol/inc.showgamefunc.php on line 422
I can not see any game because of this.

I have problem entering codes right now. Anytime I'm asked for code system doesn't lift lock. I tried already with 3 codes and with Chrome and IE11.

Topic is old but I don't won't to open new just for this.

BTW. Is this really needed these days? All sites like lemon amiga, mobygames, vg museum working fine without such irritating limitations.

I'll PM RCK about this.

I'm re-starting to add some missing scans, screens etc and while lock after 100 views is irritating but I can bear it then lock without possibility to bypass it's not :/

There was a bug with image verification and uppercase char, it have been fixed !
The limit before human verification test occurs have been raised from 100 to 500 game view

I've decided to test functionality. It appears it doesn't block me after 100 hits but visual meter still works like it was designed for 100 hits.
