Looking for answers to your color questions, have some advice to give... or simply want to get to know your fellow COLOURlovers? You're in the right place.
I have gotten this error message a few times as well. I'm kind of new to CL so I'm not really sure, but I think it is a part of an anti-spam measure. Unfortunately it kind of punishes you for sharing loves o(╥﹏╥)o ...
So lately I've been trying pace my "loves." For example, I will "love" 4 creations and then stop to post a few comments/palettes/patterns before I "love" anything else. I have been doing this for about a week now and it's working ❣
This is getting really tedious.
It's just happened again, and I was not serial-loving or anything. I had just made a few patterns and wanted to get back to the template I used.
We do need protection against spam, and badly, but if this is one of the implemented features, well, it's not working against spammer. They're thriving, and I am getting fed up with being rate limited.
I got a response from Darius about this over on Facebook I while back, he said it was designed to filter out spambots not COLOURlovers and was only supposed to kick in if the site was accessed by on that url at a rate of over 40 hits per second (which was supposed to mean machines not humans were being blocked)*. I was amazed my machine was even capable of 40 hits a second as I frequentgly struggle to get a connection lasting more than a few seconds unless I'm actually sitting on top of my router... It hasn' happened lately and I didn't realise the problem was quite so widespread. Not sure he realise...I'll see if I can get this raised again.
*Not sure of hus exact figs or wording but thats the basic gist
This happened to me for the first time yesterday. I just came back to CL and am getting blocked :(
Omg, I'm having the same issue!
I just came back from a VERY long hiatus, only to find out that I can't even follow someone without getting "rate limited"
This is ridiculous! And very frustrating! Please someone help us figure out an answer to this issue!
That's a real shame! >.< I feel like they've abandoned us...*sighs*
Thank you for letting me know. <3
