Maximum lookup number

Post by Bengie »

Hi guys. Yesterday I was checking the banned users IP addresses on my forum through this site as I want to make a stat table to see the geographical area where they mainly originate from.

After almost one hundred addresses entered manually by me, I was locked out for an hour as it was assumed that I was a bot.

Will this always happen, and if I continue over a few days, will I be permanently locked out? I wouldn't want that to happen.

Yes, we need to throttle access to the details pages as they are being scraped. At this point we are only permanently locking out the top few scrapers.
