Batch trackable discovery says "Failed to log trackable. Denied by the Geocaching LIVE api." What is the problem?

Is it just because of the long queue? I refreshed the authentification for the API, but didn´t help.

Per Moun10Bike on the Groundspeak forums: "An update to the trackable service yesterday caused this. The team is in the process now of rolling back that change."
Thank you for the info!=)

It has nothing to do with Project-GC.... there appears to be an issue at Geocaching.com.

So there is a problem with the API? On geocaching.com I can log trackables just fine, no problem there. But I cannot do the bulk discovery on Project GC.

Seems to be happening again today..... I just had one lot of 200 go through, and the second lot all denied with that error message??

Really wanting to get these done, I turned back to <cough> another site to do the list.....
It got through the whole list, but I noted this in its output several times:
(I obscured the TB number...)

PCXXXX Error 140 The number of calls allowed for this Method has been exceeded Will try again in 8 s ...
PCXXXX Error 140 The number of calls allowed for this Method has been exceeded Will try again in 12 s ...
PCXXXX Error 140 The number of calls allowed for this Method has been exceeded Will try again in 18 s ...
PCXXXX OK

Is this where the Proj GC auto discoverer is failing??
