Wonder if shopify people are aware of how these drops work.
Anyone knows how to go around this locking you out due to too many request from the device bullshit?

The only trick I know is using an iPad or iPhone and switching from wifi to LTE.

Will try that. Thanks, mate!

I was actually refreshing like I was setting myself on missing out, that slow. Got locked out three times anyway.

Submitted a wishlist, but do not have high hopes.


I've found Emek's site to be the most sensitive to the refresh issue. I don't know if that's possible but I've been locked out after maybe a half dozen attempts over a couple minutes. Makes it kind of tough.

I have only been locked out on Obey drop once or twice before even though I was refreshing like a crazy person. When Radiohead dropped, I was refreshing faster than a bot would and was not locked out even once. Go figure.

Obey is set time. Easy not to get locked out. I didn't have any issues with radiohead either.

Today, yes. Radiohead, no.
P.S. Was expected though. I do not think I have seen a better Metallica poster, ever. To my liking anyway. Plus there are only 60 of them and who wants metal, anyway?

Duh. Haven't thought about the timing :lol: Though I definitely remember being locked out after refreshing the page maybe 5 or 6 times.
