Summary0000784: Error when trying to retreive place name information
DescriptionI started receiving an error today when I try to assign coordinates to a photo and GeoSetter attempts to get the place name data. An error pops up and says: "GeoNames reports the following problem: the hourly limit of 2000 credits geosetter has been exceeded. Please throttle your requests or use the commercial service." I have not attempted any where near 2000 requests (more like about 100) over a the previous few hours, yet the error continues to appear every time I assign coordinates to a photo.
TagsNo tags attached.

This is a part of the next release of the GeoSette Help file:

Why should I use my own GeoNames Account?

In the default configuration GeoSetter is using the GeoNames account "geosetter". The requests for each GeoNames account are limited per hour. For the account "geosetter" this limit is exceeded very often. It is strongly recommended that you create your own GeoNames account under If your account is active, please enter it in the Internet settings of GeoSetter.

Thanks, I was not aware of this issue before. I have set up my own GeoNames account, and everything is working properly now.
