This counter already exists?
Question by Email:
HAPPY NEW YEAR 2013
I have lost the code for my counter, in a Serve-cleanup, now I can’t come back in on your site to download a new one, it says
The following error took place:
This counter already exists? Please choose another name! LOCAL
– why is that?
I have tried with another name….
The reason you got this message is because another user already has registered the counter name that you have chosen, there are millions of users on the servers so any short or obvious names are becoming very scarce, for instance getting a counter with the name mycounter.
Even niche names are getting short, i.e. if you run an image site and call your counter photocount etc. etc.
You can choose to have a randomly generated name by not filling in the name of your counter when you sign up OR add some additional characters to your proposed name i.e. mycounter567.
Hope this helps
