    Hi BHW!

    I built a web scraping tool automate the process of liking photos. I use six different websites to rotate between. I had a problem a week ago where 6 of my users got a temporary liking ban from third party sites for a week. I am wondering if their are precautions I can take to prevent this. Currently up to two users can be on one IP address. I like at least 120 photos per hour between 6 third party sites. I don't want to get into my algorithm too much, but there is sleeps between photos like and between hashtags. I shut down the bot for 1 hour every 12 hours. Would changing the ip address (In location of user) every 12 hours help prevent third party like bans. I slowed down my software considerably, and I don't want to keep lowering my parameters (Increasing sleep times). Any tips!?
