    Hey guys! I'm recently having problems with one of my FL projects, this one is always scraping the same users over and over (I'm scraping top results only), so it keeps saying the user has previously been followed, It's been like that since july 1 or 2, Also this isn't happening on all the accounts in the project, just few. I've double checkd my followers source and there's plenty of new followers to scrape. If I untick the "only top results" it gets me new followers but obviously not the most recents.

    I've tried clearing all the scraped users/photos/cache, even reinstalling the program & restoring a backup with no luck.

    I logged manually on each account and all of them are doing fine, maybe something has changed on IG itself.

    Is anyone else having the same problem?

    In fact, my problems started when I ran my unfollow cycle.

    It's a new API algorithm to prevent botting.

    Had those issues for most of my accounts last week, but was able to bring everything back to life. Here's what I did at random, not sure which exactly resolved the issue
    - Cleared scraped users
    - Cleared sessioin cookies
    - Added more accounts to target but with 10K-50K followers
