We know that some of you guys use various scripts, including 'Greasemonkey' scripts in Firefox, to do various things to improve your TC experience. We have nothing against these (unless they aid cheating, of course) and have never done anything to deliberately stop them working.

However, it has come to our attention that some of these scripts in effect automate clicks. Some of these are clicking so much they set off our protection systems which result in you being unable to access TC for a period of time. This may not be obvious because the the errors are likely to be "Timeouts", rather than a 403 or other error page.

Please, if you have any problems accessing TC, turn off these scripts, wait a few minutes, restart your browser and try again. If this solves the problem then please contact the script author and get them to "tune down" the automated clicking...

Any questions please post here.

Cheers,

Davz

There is a reload panel in the (newer ) latest versions of Greasemonkey that had to be updated after the server upgrades - pages were being displayed funny.

I can't find a way to turn it off but I never get time outs now since the servers have been improved I would just advise any user of Greasemonkey script to set reload panel to 3000 second or something and not to remain logged in while (inactive) using the script or to disable it if you leave the screen.

Edit: Actually looking at the reload panel here that Greasemonkey has it shows a reload button so my guess is it would only start reloading the page if it was clicked and reload at the set amount of time in seconds, so maybe a lot of users are now using custom (and or illegal) scripts that cause this.

technically anything that reloads a page in tc or clicks a link for you would be illegal.....
