    so i had an account that i got up to 1300 followers and 550 followed. i started off following the first 500 or so using instaget and got little results. i later just liked a ton of pics over a week or so and got up to like 600 but the damn spammers got me up to 1300ish. they are powerful.

    anyways i leave it alone for 1-2 weeks and then i start up the liking process again, using 3s in between likes. about under 30m later, i notice the account gets disabled.

    what went wrong here? in the past i did this for like 12-24 hours straight and no problem. now its under an hour at a 3s delay and im banned?

    3s delay between likes is pretty damn fast man. That might be your problem..

    I like with dellays of 1 - 2 seconds... but then my accounts have over 20k followers and have been alive for over 3 months. So that may be why.
