Still an issue, will be deleting snipes for tomorrow - 2015-12-18


The new captcha page ebay is showing is still a problem. I talked to the coder last night, but I don't know that there's anything that can be done to work get around it. We can't get through the page, the only hope is to set something up so that the sniper engine doesn't encounter it.

It looks like at least one of the other services are having the same issue, I'd guess all are. eBay added the page out of the blue, we're basically at their mercy. I don't know if they want to get rid of automated sniping, or at least sniping services, or what. A desktop program may not encounter the captcha page as the snipes would be coming from your own ip address.

I'll see if the coder has come up with anything tonight, and post an udpate if I have anymore news.

I'll be deleting all snipes set to execute tomorrow if things don't improve in the next few hours.

As I wrote in the last post, this might be it for hidbid if we can't get through this.

Sorry for the trouble.

I've deleted all snipes for the 18th - 2015-12-17


I've deleted all of the snipes for tomorrow, the 17th, as, they weren't going to execute, and another day of logins with captchas shown and not entered will just make things worse.

The coder is aware of the problem, hopefully he'll have at least an idea of what to try to get the captchas to stop appearing, and hopefully get rid of the login errors as well, tomorrow. The login errors shouldn't have occurred in the first place, as, we're submitting correct info (unless you entered the wrong info on the set up page, but members will have a login error on one snipe, and then not on the next one that executes 10 minutes later - even so, there is apparently a solution for this, but we don't have it -yet at least).

If we don't come up with some soon, I guess this is it for hidbid.

I'll post an update when I have some more news. In the meantime, you'll have to make other arrangements for your sniping.

Again, sorry for the trouble.

Snipes Not Executing!!!! - 2015-12-17


It looks like ebay is showing a new page with a captcha for all snipes now, so no snipes can execute. Maybe 1 in 10 will not get this new page and possibly execute.

It's Friday evening for the coder, so he's not due in until Sunday, EST. I imagine they're going to keep showing this page, I don't know if we triggered it somehow, if all sniping sites are getting it, or what.

Until further notice, figure on your snipes not executing because of this.

I don't know if we'll be able to keep going if they keep showing this new page.

Again, sorry for the trouble. I'll make an update when I have more news.
