CB - ReTries - & Setting Retries Per Project Rather Than Globally
I have been watching the CB screen as it chugs away.
I see it has a number of captchas wrong.
I'd like to know the following:
1) If I set retry to 5, will it show up in the window that it is retrying the captcha? I've been watching for a while and can't see it retrying a wrong captcha.
2) I am doing a blog comment run. Lets say correct captcha is "ABSabs" but it attempts "AB8bs" which is wrong. It says "Solved With xxx".
a) Surely the blog rejects this wrong captcha. Surely I should see a new captcha that it is retrying the captcha?
b) Would it be possible for it to show "Retrying Attempt 1" when it is retrying the captcha in the GUI. This way we can see what is new and what it's not solving.
3) What's the best amount of captcha retries?
4) Given that different projects have different importance, can we set the CB retries on a per project basis rather than global. I'd like it to try 5x on my PR4+ Tier 1 projects, but for my PR0 Tier 4 projects, I'd like to set it to only retry once. How do I do this?
Im running everything on zero retries.
And Im still hitting 140k submissions a day
Tried running csx as first captcha service and cb as second the other day to get a true idea of how the two compare.
50k submissions down that day :O
I was going to post the screen shots on another forum to antagonise another captcha developer
But Nasa cant keep up with dummies being spat faster than the speed of light
Im lazy. Counting is not my thing, plus it uses more energy to go round hitting buttons and turning retries from zero to one
A lot of the captchas from when I have done things manually, would change on each try, so unless your reloading a page and grabbing a new image, why bother with a retry?
I could well be wrong on that
