I'm updating about 1000 profiles every week. I speak from lots of experience. Plus, there's a major difference between mobile and desktop. Clean your browser data DAILY – especially your cookies.

By the way, I'm using a VPN while we're speaking. So...

The vpn I installed is surprisingly not hiding my ip. I just have to spend a little time to browse and find one.

Apparently using my phone data is an effective work around to update profiles without ever being blocked. Over the past few months I’ve added to or updated many hundreds of profiles on this website without any issues beyond my home Wi-Fi no issues (except for the occasional checkbox confirming that I’m not a robot).

 

I’ve said this before, I’ll say it again: I would not be wasting my time if only updating random profiles if non-members accounts on this website properly updated themselves instead of heading into eternal limbo as told by the “Updated x years ago, next update soon.” below profile/trophy milestones. Why don’t these profiles update automatically, ahem Sly?

Because automated updates for unregistered, non-premium users have been disabled in early 2017.

I've been actively visiting and/or posting on this website for six years (three years with this account) so I'm well aware he disabled these updates some years ago but I've never quite got the reason why.

To reduce server strain.

I mean, Sly could just make improvements on his own website until this becomes a non-issue but apparently that's asking too much.

It's a case of not wanting to hit Sony's endpoints so hard.

To achieve what? PSN has tens of millions of active daily users. PSNP is merely a drop in the bucket in terms of traffic.

PSNP is tracking 5.5M profiles. How is this a "drop in the bucket"?

Does Sony have rate limits on its endpoints per IP or per account(s) being used to access the API?

This has also been happening to me for the past week or so.

 

I am able to update my own profile just fine, but it won't let me update others' profiles

And I bet not every of those 5.5M wants to be tracked or even know they are being tracked(yet we have people keep updating others account here) anyways.

Didn't PSNP when started auto queued everyone from PSN when trophies went live? I remember hearing that a long time ago. So in other words it didn't have the consent of everyone, so I think that Sly removing auto update is right, and kinda justifiable since privacy issues, not all those want to be here or even know they are here.

You described a very naive approach. No where in your post did you take into consideration limits of Sony's private API that is being used.

 

Quote
  • Once per month (active players (earned at least one trophy withing the past four weeks))
  • Once every six months (earned at least one trophy within the past six months)

 

I hope you see the logical problem in this.

1.) I did. What do you think what the maintenance mode is for? PSNP would remain in that mode until all 5,5 million profiles had been updated. If it takes a day or a week doesn't really matter. The only important goal is to update everyone so we can start cleaning house. We need requirements to be added to the site and remove everyone who doesn't fulfill them. Less players = less server strain. Less dummy accounts = proper stats that actually reflect trophy hunters/hunting.

At least I made some suggestions instead of constantly moaning and complaining about the situation. Nobody aside from Sony knows Sony's API limits. But I just expect a billion dollar coproration with a network of tens of millions active daily users to be able to handle this bit of traffic. PSNP has been around for over a decade by know and Sony know very well about this website. Plus, sites like PSNTL, Exophase or TrueTrophies have regular automated updates. 


2.) No logical problem here. Group 1: A trophy within the last seven days. Group 2: A trophy within the last 31 days but not within the last seven days. It ain't exactly rocket science. 😶

You were able to log into your PSN account and load your friends list. Those users then were automatically added to PSNP. That was basically the main reason why the number of players got so bloated early on. The feature was removed sometime in 2012.

If privacy if a concern, make your profile private. Trophy data is not your own. Nothing about your PSN account is your own.

Blocked again for weeks already at this point. Can this be fixed already...?

Randomly started getting this error yesterday, when I went to update/check a profile. I haven't updated anyone other than myself in... months, at least. Potentially years. Don't know what might have caused it, or if there's anything I need to do to fix it.
