At last, seems like I have been unbanned and I can once again update other people's profiles.

I would be careful because that could end up getting you banned again.

I've been getting the same thing but only when updating other people's profiles. I'm also a premium member so no idea what's up. 😕

Strange how its only when updating other for your case. How long has it been a problem?

The temporary ban is usually for a week from past experience. I tend to have the same issue when scanning my friends' profiles but not when I scan my own.

Not too sure to be honest, maybe like a week or so I think.

Alrigtht thanks. It's annoying because it's what I pay for, to update my profile as frequently as I like...

I’ve had the ban now for more than a week. I’ll admit I update frequently (I didn’t know there was a “limit”) but the day I got banned I only updated once manually. Hoping this is resolved soon...

@Sly Ripper I'm also experiencing problems updating any other profile apart from my own. Can this please be fixed.

Sly manually resets it afaik. Can take ages and has in the past.

Has anyone ever been able to get in contact with @Sly Ripper about this? I don't want to be annoying but I have been using this website a lot, and it's a shame if I can't use it now because I met some undisclosed update limit. I boost with a number of people using this website, and it's inconvenient when I can't compare trophies, or if I can't see what I have earned when looking at guides. It also seems like my account isn't auto-updating anymore, which now makes the inability to manually update my profile even worse. From the posts on here, even investing in premium membership to support the website wouldn't be worth it because you are always at risk of being IP banned randomly for an indefinite amount of time.

Your profile is on a 24 hour auto-update, with manual updates allowed every hour. This is normal for non-Premium accounts and yours looks to be functioning normally.

Investing in Premium only allows updates every minute of their own profile and is still working. The update "ban" is generally when people are trying to update other people's profiles, which has nothing to do with a Premium Membership.

 

If these Premium perks aren't something that make sense, then it probably isn't worth it for you:

  • Quote

     

    • More regular automatic updates
    • A golden forum name ^_^
    • Forum user title/username changes
    • Larger avatar filesizes
    • More trophies in your trophy cabinet.
    • No ads

The IP blocks last only a few hours and go away automatically. No need to worry.

That's not true. I have been banned out of blue twice already. The first ban lasted ~3 months.

My IP has been blocked for well over a week now, it's ridiculous, and no-one seems to be able to get a hold of the site owner, not even the moderators.

"Banned" from the act of updating others profiles. Not from the site (leaderboards, forums, Discord, etc...)

I know but still, why would anyone get banned for that? I don't remember updating others was ever considered a bad thing.

Sony clamps down on too many hits to their unpublished API for trophy data so to avoid Sony banning all of PSNP from accessing that data, there are limitations on users manually updating.

 

Thats just one reason, could be more.
