    I've been using FL only to like photo's w certain hashtags. Now I'm using FLC just to like photo's from the followers of one user. I used essentially the settings from Imristo tutorial which has served me well. I set the like limit to 15-25, daily limit to 1000-1200 and the Delay like to 25-40.

    Now because FL is only liking one photo per automation there is a gap between the photos it likes that can be up to 2 min 30 sec. At this rate FL will never finish it's task. This is incredibly frustrating. Am I doing something wrong?

    Scrape Photo Limit: 1
    Scrape only top results.
    Query: Relevant - FLC:"username"

    Does the scrape photo limit make each automation to one like? I meant for it to limit FL to like only 1 photo/user. To mitigate the situation I changed the Automation Interval to 5-70 seconds. So I guess 3 follow ups:

    1. Is 5-70 seconds between automation cycles going to be conservative enough to keep me from getting blocked if I'm liking 1200 pics a day?
    2. Is that going to be the only/best remedy?
    3. If I want to run other projects that I want to run with more normal automation intervals do I have to run another instance of FL?

    Thanks for any help. I know I'm asking a lot of questions.

    Yes. You're telling Followliker to only grab ONE image, then do something to it.

    If you want to like up to 25 photos, scrape 25 photos. :p

    It depends. The general safe limit is 1,000 likes per day. If you're running any other actions besides liking in that 5-70 second automation cycle, that's at your own risk.

    Yes. You can't run multiple projects in a single instance. You'd have to open an instance for each project, which means you can set each project's automation interval to match your needs.

    Thanks KenTZ! That helped. One follow up. If I wanted to tell FL "like 15-20 pics/automation but only like 1 pic/follower" is there a way to do that? That's what I had intended

    I'm running into the same stupid problem. I just want to like ONE pic per user, so set scrape limit to 1 and like limit at 10-16 before it switches to automation interval. Can't get it working.

    My work around is now to have a seperate instance running, solely for liking (I don't need follow/unfollow for this specific account) and set a superlow automation interval so it's liking every 40-60 seconds. It sucks, but it works.

    Edit: It does work though when I like based on #tags, so liking 1 pic per user and 10-16 per task. But that's not the way I work. I daily scrape a userlist and import it into "scrape photo settings".

    FLC is kind of buggy, so its not possible to like (lets say) 25 diff users pics, adjust your automation interval to a lower delay.
