"Better summary: "Skip [hoster]" only skips links for which the captcha countdown hasn't started yet. Instead it should skip ALL links which haven't begun downloading (even if the captcha countdown has begun), BUT NOT STOP ongoing downloads for that hoster -- see (*)

To reproduce: You need several links from ONE hoster e.g. either uploaded, or bitshare or turbobit, AND several valid proxies in the connection manager (I get the proxies with a script).

Stop downloads, add/import proxies, then force-start all the links for that one hoster. All the count-downs will start as soon as the various proxies connect (some might be faster than others). Then, when the first captcha shows up, choose "Skip all captchas for [hostername]". You will notice that other captchas for that same hoster keep coming up.

  • in the past year, there was a much more dangerous bug: when I chose "Skip [hostername]", it would not only skip all not-started links, but also immediately stop active downloads for e.g. uploaded.to. I wrote about it and you guys fixed it (thanks!). That bug is much worse, so don't bring it back "
