    Hi,

    Just got my comment rater working again using private proxies (it's not sandboxed), but how many accounts should I use on every IP to avoid flagging? Also, please let me know if there are other things I need to know about comment rating.

    Thanks. :)

    Yea there are some things to keep in mind, make sure you measure the velocity of interval between comments.
    Know the source of your accounts, and where they are made including the email it was made.
    Test for the next week to find out the right mix of ratings, and comments an account can have.(meaning how many it can do)

    Test to find out the current phrases, youtube has banned for commenting.
    Check that your ips aren't blacklisted on any blacklist like spamhaus.
    Use a variety of user-agents when doing commenting and rating.

    Test both the api, the mobile, and the normal commenting system to see which one works for you.
    They all have their plusses, mobile has less restrictions but has a shortage message limit.

    TEst, test, test . Anyone who is into commenting rating, who isn't playing around has his head so much into youtube
    he probably doesn't think of anything else than that, and i can assure you they don't come to bhw to give you pointers.

    Your bot is just 10% of the iceberg, the 90% is actually doing the tests doing just what i told you about. Remember is not the bot, is the actual side server algorithm but i guess people will still believe a bot will solve all of their problems with youtube comment rating.
    Do some more tests to find out if the longab

    Thanks, very helpful. You mentioned some factors that I never even considered. My bot is working perfectly at the moment, I just want to be on the safe side.
