API Terms of Use are changing February 1,2014 on Discogs.com

You can read the following post at the discogs forum:

Hi, Everyone. On February 1, 2014 we will be making the/ following changes to the Discogs API:

1) We will no longer offer the Premium API service. Current customers have been notified.

2) Image requests will now require an application id. Image requests will also be limited to one per second and 1,000 per day, per application id (instead of per IP address).

You can create an application id here: https://www.discogs.com/settings/developers

Please see the Image request documentation for information on including an application id with Image requests:
https://www.discogs.com/developers/reso ... image.html

Again, these changes will take effect on Feb 1, 2014. We are making these changes to improve the overall performance of the Discogs website.
This means that currently no images can be imported with Discogs Tagger. I have an application id for the script, but the image requests are limited to 1,000 per day, per application id.
Another problem is the OAth authentication. I didn't get it work under vbs. If some one can help with this i would be very happy !!

If you have any ideas or suggestions please let me know. Thank you !
Metal up your ass !
I added my first 2 videos on youtube. The language is german.

Contact me over PM Maybe I can help you with that, an General Plugin DLL that would Do some of Hard Work for you.

See this example I made http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewto ... 19&t=73936

FYI looks like scripts/bots are getting popular and limiting is the only way to cut of some bandwidth.
