Hello I have the following issue with the requests to premium account. I know my credentials and url are valid because most of the times I'm getting the correct results back, but once in a while I'm getting

Code:
 {"status":{"message":"Please provide a valid username for the GeoNames Premium Web Service or use the free api.geonames.org server. Thank you for your understanding.","value":10}}
 


The URL I'm using is:
Code:
 "http://ws.geonames.net/searchJSON?country=pl&fcode=ADM1&maxRows=500&style=full&token=[REMOVED]&username=[REMOVED]
 


Any help or explanation why this happens would be much appreciated. It's quite impossible to write a good client code having this error appearing sporadically.

Hi

Is it possible you have blanks in the url sometimes? This would lead to the error you describe:
