    Hey BHW,

    I have 9 accounts in a global project in FollowLiker, have them following, unfollowing, liking, commenting, and DMing. Been botting them for like two years, so their limits are pretty high.

    I have them doing "FLC:" people who commented, liked, or followed some the biggest YouTubers (like roman atwood, danisnotonfire, ricky dillon, markiplier, jacksepticeye, amazingphil, etc.)

    I have the accounts limit set to:

    Daily Follow Limit: 450-550
    Daily Unfollow Limit: 550-600
    Daily Like Limit: 600-700
    Daily Comment Limit: 200-260
    Daily DM Limit: 90-120

    with 24/7 automation.

    (Some people may debate these settings, but I've been running them for like 2 years and haven't had an issue. I have to phone verify every few months, but that's not much of an issue.)

    This is what my accounts actually do on average:

    Follows: 400
    Unfollows: 425
    Likes: 350
    Comments: 66
    DM's: 0-1

    The DM's are my main Issue, but if anyone knows why it's not getting through all the follow/like/comment/unfollow actions let me know! (Under general settings, my automation interval is 30-60 seconds, and my delays for all of the actions are reasonable: 13-30, 11-30, 13-20, 20-40, and 35-60 seconds. Also, I know that there are plenty of scraped users, because the accounts they're scraping from have millions and millions of followers [just clicked the 'scraped users' button, and it has over 11,000 waiting in the list]. I tried a bunch of the things in File > Clear to see if that was slowing it down, but it didn't seem to make a difference. Also, I do have over half a million names in my blacklist, so that could be part of it, but I don't think that's the main problem. Any ideas?)

    Ok, now back to the DM issue.

    I was using Holr.co to send DM's, but they started putting '- this message was sent via @holrco' or whatever at the end of every message and it got super annoying. Also, sometimes DM's would just stop sending or get an 8hr delay between messages. Anyway, yeah. I got fed up with it and started DMing through FollowLiker. I spun 200 unique messages to send, and it worked great for like a month set on "mail only new followers". I get about 40-80 new followers per day per account, and it was working perfectly, but then (without me changing any settings) it just stopped one day and now all my accounts are doing 0-1 DM's per day (except for one account that has been doing about 27 per day). I know it's not a ghost ban or anything, I've signed into all the accounts and tested them and they can send DM's just fine and everything else is exactly the same (still getting 40-80 new followers per day and stuff) Any ideas?

    I REALLY want to get this fixed, but can't figure out what it could be. :/

    Problem with FollowLiker is that FLC is extremely bugged. It's been said many times in the past but the developers always go against it and claim it's working fine. I'm currently working on a new Instagram bot (which has DM feature), if you would like to test it out, let me know.

    True, FLC isn't perfect, shouldn't effect DM'ing new followers though, should it?

    and yeah, I'd definitely be interested in testing your bot. PM me :)

    I'm also struggling big time with DMs to new followers. IG temporarily blocks all accounts sooner or later in a 1 week time period.

    * 1 very well spinned text (no links)
    DM Limit: 1 to 1
    Daily DM limit: 30 to 60
    Deilay DM: 300 to 600 seconds

    Sorry it's not working for you. Nobody helped me on this thread, so I had to go back to using holr.co I haven't been DMing with my new accounts much, but I have like 10x 1-3 year old accounts (10-30k followers each) that aren't having a problem on their system. Its pretty screwy though. Their site is super glitchy.

    YEah the FLC method on followliker is behaving weirdly!
    I set it to like 1800-2000 a day. 1-3 minute interval. 20-30 second delay... in 24 hrs it has only like 369 pics.
    I tried deleting it and setting it up the accounts again but didnt work. Hopefully the next update sorts this.
