So I gave up trying to mine TLM on Alien Worlds months ago, when I realized it would take me years of mining to earn what I could sell my powerful tools for now that their values had shot up after the launch of TLM on Binance. I did not, however, stop mining on Alien Worlds, I simply changed my strategy. Now I mine on specific lands and try to mine free NFTs from the likes of Ultra Rare, Exit Limbo, and Graffiti Kings. It’s more profitable and more fun, in my opinion.
I don’t mine often, just whenever I happen to have a free minute while working on something else, which is why I was surprised when I started to get the error “Nothing to be mined! Please try again later.” I tried mining different lands and different worlds, but I always got this error. It turns out, my account had somehow been flagged as a bot account.
Now how this is possible when I only make a couple dozen mining attempts in an entire week is beyond me. I would expect bot accounts to mine constantly. The only thing I can think of is that I mine from multiple IPs and that is a red flag. I mine from my home IP, my office IP, and then from whatever public IP I happen to be using while working on my laptop from a cafe or wherever I’ve gone for a change of pace.
Anyway, whatever the reason, Alien Worlds algorithm decided I was a bot and blocked my account from mining. Here’s what I had to do to fix that. While logged into Alien Worlds, click on the yellow “Support” button in the bottom right corner of the screen. This will take you to their Zendesk site. Click the yellow “Support” button in the bottom right of this page as well, and search for anything. At the bottom of the search results page, a yellow “Contact us” button will appear. Fill out this form with as much detail as you can and be prepared to wait a few days to a week.
Eventually, you’ll hear back from Support, and hopefully they’ve agreed to unblock your account. Then you’ll have to wait a few more days for the block to actually be lifted. After this, you’ll hopefully be able to mine TLM again, or in my case, NFTs.
