    I've just started using FL - bought it about 10 days ago & have been very conservative thus far. No issues. I should tell you that I'm not really selling anything or looking to make money. I'm a photographer & am just looking to bump up my followers.

    I want to bump up the settings, but wanted to see if you thought I was being too aggressive with my new settings.

    I've had this account for 4 years. Had never used a bot before.

    Following
    • Ratio: 1.5
    • Follow Limit: 10 - 15
    • Daily Follow Limit: 400 - 500
    • Delay Follow: 70 - 80
    • (I'm only following accounts with under 5000 followers who have posted within the past 5 days & ignoring private users)
    • I'm following 4 days a week.
    Unfollowing
    • Unfollowing after 3 days
    • Unfollow limit: 10 - 15
    • Daily Unfollow Limit: 400 - 500
    • Delay Unfollow: 70 - 80
    • I'm unfollowing 3 days a week
    Commenting
    • Comment Limit: 2 - 3
    • Daily Comment Limit: 175 -250
    • Delay Comment: 35 - 45
    • Comment only once
    • I have about 90 very generic / general comments in the list
    Liking
    • Like Limit: 15 - 20
    • Daily Like Limit: 1500 - 1800
    • Delay Like: 17 - 22
    Queries
    • Scrape Users - I'm scraping 20 user's followers & I add / remove users from this list every day.
    • Scrape Photo - I'm scraping "relevant" on about 20 hashtags. Again, I add / remove tags daily.
    General Settings
    • Account threads: 15
    • Automation Interval: 2 - 3 minutes
    • Enable continuous automation

    Suggestions appreciated.

    I'm not an expert but I can give you a little bit of info with my limited experience that may or may not be helpful.

    I've been using FL for my photography account that I created a couple months ago. I used Instagress on "fast" settings for the first month and a half 24/7 but when I switched to FL and set max daily follows to around 600 I got follow banned for 24 hours. I'm not sure why it happened on FL and not Instagress but I dialed it back a bit. You may be able to do higher numbers since your account is older. Overall, I've been able to tweak the settings to get great results but I'd be careful with ramping up your followings just to be cautious. Haven't had an issue with mass unfollows at all. All of my other settings are pretty close to yours, minus the ratio settings.

    Also, keep your eye on the unfollow process. Mine will say that it's unfollowing users but when I look at the account, it hasn't unfollowed them at all. I have to stop and then start the project again to get it to work properly.

    Your settings are looking pretty good and safe, your delays are a bit higher compared to mines, here are few suggestions:

    Following
    • Ratio: 1.5 why?
    • Follow Limit: 10 - 15
    • Daily Follow Limit: 400 - 500 cap it at 950, scale it every week
    • Delay Follow: 70 - 80 40-60 works too, but if you are completing your task with this range then its ok
    • (I'm only following accounts with under 5000 followers who have posted within the past 5 days & ignoring private users)
    • I'm following 4 days a week.
    Unfollowing NEVER FOLLOW+UNFOLLOW THE SAME DAY
    • Unfollowing after 3 days
    • Unfollow limit: 10 - 15
    • Daily Unfollow Limit: 400 - 500 cap it at 1000, scale it as following
    • Delay Unfollow: 70 - 80 same as following
    • I'm unfollowing 3 days a week
    Commenting I wouldnt use comments with FL, too risky > benefits
    • Comment Limit: 2 - 3
    • Daily Comment Limit: 175 -250
    • Delay Comment: 35 - 45
    • Comment only once
    • I have about 90 very generic / general comments in the list
    Liking all good, cap it there
    • Like Limit: 15 - 20
    • Daily Like Limit: 1500 - 1800
    • Delay Like: 17 - 22
    Queries all good
    • Scrape Users - I'm scraping 20 user's followers & I add / remove users from this list every day.
    • Scrape Photo - I'm scraping "relevant" on about 20 hashtags. Again, I add / remove tags daily.
    General Settings
    • Account threads: 15
    • Automation Interval: 2 - 3 minutes
    • Enable continuous automation

    Thanks for your feedback.

    Ratio - Just think it looks better to be following more than you're following. No other reason than that.

    Re: Daily Follow Limit - you're saying to not go over 950, but adjust the settings each week? For instance one day this week, 400 - 500; another day this week 600 - 700; another day 800 - 900; another day 200 - 300, etc., etc.?

    The setting davidmc007 gave you are to high if you want to stay safe

    If your account is aged, 6+ months, you can run 600 follow, 600 unfollow, 1600 likes (maybe more, but it won't really make a difference), 350 comments

    This are safe settings, you can go higher but you might get banned
