    i got the error400 and he is not liking pictures. Now i tried changing the ip with a new proxy. I use proxy:port, but nothing happens. Its still the error400... how do people use proxies in the script? i use it with "ip:port"

    Looks like you need fresh proxies. Either way this account is probably flagged now.

    i used the bot for 1 month, but used it too much. So prob flagged. But when i use another bot its working, so i thought it just can be the ip of pythonanywhere. But how i know if the proxies are good for it or not. The proxies i have should work, should..

    am i use it right.? proxy='00000:0000',

    The way to test proxies is to actually use them on scraping job. I don't understand the last part of your question.

    I had the same problem and can't find a solution, basically, he is asking how to implement a proxy into the instabot program in python, we need to know how to add proxies to python
