    Posting Up this Thread because there is a few others out there and I'm getting lost in them all. (who has this bot or that bot nonsense.) Let's all work on to figure out what the new limit is and what seems to be working best for people that are using bots. I would hate to hear someone with a huge account and followers gets a permeant ban.

    What we know so far....


    Likes.
    There is a 24hr ban on liking too many pictures.
    When you go and like a picture on your feed with will appear that it's liked the un-like it's self. causing a 1-24hr ban.
    Still trying to figure out.

    Comments.
    Still trying to figure that out.

    Follows.
    Still trying to figure that out.



    I will update this area as much as possible when we have the finial word that Comments/likes/follow numbers seem to be safely working.

    I hope we can clear some things up for everyone without having to check 100 different Threads.

    TL;DR:
    It seems that if a brand new "client" accounts receives over 800 followers within 24 hours of creation, then he gets "button blocked".

    Seems a little odd that Instagram would do such a dumb move. Then again it makes sense towards the bottom of the read.

    50 sec delay working fine 24/7, but damn that's slow. Commenting also ok at around 60 sec delay.

    50 sec delay too slow for you? try 75 sec delay LOL! i got banned for 24 hours for doing a 60 second delay a few days ago and figured i'd rather be safe than aggravated. so far no problems. and as for commenting, i was also doing a 75 sec delay and just got banned from that after less than a day of commenting.

    finally able to comment again, going to try a 90 sec delay. i probably won't leave it on all night tho... was doing good with liking with a 75 sec delay but i'm going to be a little daring and try 70 sec delay now.

    I think some of you are confusing readers when you say "banned". It took me about 2 times to reread this thread to understand what some of you meant by "banned" and actually getting "blocked".

    In this case, I haven't gotten banned from Instagram, but I do get blocked for liking pictures with a 10 second delay. It's usually a 24 hour block I believe before my likes stop getting ghosted

    There is a cookie you can delete to circumvent the block

    I hope that's not true. This wouldn't have an effect on accounts that are a month or two old would it? +Rep to anyone that can verify this.
