This is gamefaqs site policy (and occurred with Advanced Launcher as well back when AL was functional). All you have to do is go to gamefaqs and fill out a captcha and you can continue importing images, but it will shut you out every 5-20 image imports which makes handling a large library really annoying. It would be super cool if the import script detected when gamefaqs locked you out, paused and let you enter the capture somehow through AEL, but I can't imagine how complex that would be so I wouldn't hold your breath.
And Wintermute, I'll get you my launchers.xml as soon as I get home, thanks for the help.
When I developed AEL originally I though about not having scrapers at all. The thing is that most (if not all) sites will have such download capping, so scraping a whole No-Intro or MAME collection will take many hours. I will encourage users to download as much artwork as possible from sites like emumovies and hyperspin forum and then use the scrapers to fine tuning the artwork of selected ROMs. I plan to add in the first post some links to places where batch collections of artwork can be downloaded.
