Windows Http_requests fail after the first three sites

So i'm only able to load three sites at a time before all responses fail, even if i re request them, or putting them on a clock incase it was a site prevention from ddos'. but no matter what i try i cant seem to get more then 3 items to load, maybe 4 very rarely if i'm remembering correctly. The fallowing is the Http event and somewhere around line 21 is where i'm getting issues. i was able to prevent crashing but wasn't able to gather more info.

Code:
//http_get("https://steambanners.booru.org/index.php?page=post&s=view&id=10623")
if ds_map_find_value(async_load, "status") >= 0 //if page returns a success
{
    for (var _i = 0; _i < array_length_2d(getListArray, 0); _i++[SIZE=3];)[/SIZE]   //find the get request in the array
    {
        if (ds_map_find_value(async_load, "id") = getListArray[_i,0])   //match the getID
        {
            var GameID  = getListArray[_i,1]
            var status  = getListArray[_i,2]
            var website = getListArray[_i,3]
            show_debug_message(getListArray[_i,3])
            var siteMap = ds_map_find_value(async_load, "id")
           
            if (string_letters(status) = "steambanners")    //if the iteration is on steambanners website
            {
               
                show_debug_message("about to request body")
                //var body = http_request(steambannersWebsite, "GET", siteMap, "body");   //grab the body of the webpage
                //show_debug_message("request recieved")
                //show_debug_message(GameID)
                bodystring = async_load[? "result"]   ///string thing after testing
               
                if (bodystring = undefined)
                {
                    var get = http_get(website);
                    getListArray[_i,3] = get
                    exit;
                }
               
                          ///If this is the first search of the sight
                if (string_digits(status) = "1")
                {
                    show_debug_message("status 1 checked")
                    var linkSuffix = string_get(bodystring,"index.php?page=post&amp;s=view&amp;id=",chr(34))     //chr(34) just stands for " search for first
                    linkID = string_digits(linkSuffix)  ///chr(34) is just "    //grab only the digits from this
                    show_debug_message(linkID)
                    clickedLink = steambannersWebsite + "index.php?page=post&amp;s=view&amp&id=" + linkID  // this formats the link
                   
                    //var get = http_get(website + linkSuffix);
                    //getListArray[_i,0] = get;
                    show_debug_message("Linksuffix is being searched for:" + GameID)
                    show_debug_message(clickedLink)
                    getListArray[_i,2] = 2
                    exit;
                }
                          ///if this is the second or more search of the site
                if (string_digits(status) = "2")
                {
                    ///do the second or more search here
                    show_debug_message("SECOND LINK GOT!!!")
                    exit;
                }
               
            }
            else
            {break;}   /////////////////////////////REMOVE THIS WHEN ADDING MORE SITES!!!
           
           
        }
    }
}
else
{
exit;
}

First, check async_load[? "status"] == 0 for success, NOT async_load[? "status"] >= 0. A status of 1 means in-progress, and there is no async_load[? "result"] to read yet when that happens.

Second, follow the posting guidelines and post your code between [code] and [/code] tags. I'm not going to waste my time reading through unindented code that the BBCode parser made a mess on.
 
i'll fix both of those now.

It turned out to be a premature for loop length. was only looping 4 times.
