    Hey All,

    So I have had my one account for 3 years and tried many different bots and what I learned is after a while you will run in to issues with blocks, bans, and finally permit bans. Keep in mind the algorithms instagram uses will log you in to there database every new blocks, bans and pb's happen so do not be so hasty to be added to that list.

    You have to keep in mind a lot of these other guys are basically using throw away accounts, mass accounts and do not really care about the outcome with there aggressive/ hardcore settings. If you are following these aggressive settings on your main account or/and aged IG accounts you're just asking for it trust me. My experience as an seasoned account with over 3 years and 11k followers before I started using FL, is that Instagram algorithms still attacks my account at even below default settings. My first post on my settings when I started FL here http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...lowliker-version-8-4-8-settings-question.html. So now I have to run my FL at cautious pace to keep from being on the IG systems radar. Again this advice is for those of you that wants to use this on one account/ main account. So far my tactic that seems to work after a 3 days with out captua, blocks or bans is to use a normal to low setting then go lower after a day or two then go higher on a few days then go low again according to actual instagram flow statistics.

    I use an instagram weekly statistics graph that I highly recommend everyone checking out to figure out the correct setting per day. Iconosquare for new users or if you never really used the statistics section, try this go to the website Iconosquare / login / go to statistics bar / if you are new it will take a moment to build your graph especially if you already have a lot of followers and photos. After it loads you will all your statistics and information on your account / on the left of the screen you will see the optimization click it then you will see a special bubble graph that shows you the best time to post and when your audience is active at what times. Use this bubble flow chart to plan when the best time to post your images, amp your settings, and when to lower your settings. If you follow this flow chart you should be able to get a higher amount of followers, likes, comments and interaction with your audience. Don't just sit there like a noob and expect a bot to automate everything, you can not predict all outcomes of the daily usage of instagram.

    Sorry about the bad spelling / grammer really late. Also if this helped you at all please don't forget to thank on the bottom left, I always appreciate the gesture!:D

    How do you know when it is time to stop botting? It sounds like we all bot to inevitably get banned at some point in time. I have multiple throw away accounts and run them on max settings. Only one of my throw away accounts has got banned. I run my main fairly conservatively, but how is there any way to know when to stop? I know some people have gone upwards of 100k followers with no issues while others get banned at under 30k

    I am not sure what your asking, but if I think your asking what I think your asking. I usually set my bot from between 8-9am (PST) those are the times when people would get on IG and from 10-11pm when people go to bed during the week, the weeks including Friday are different schedules.

    As for your accounts set to max, what kind of max are you talking about? If your account is new you can use general and higher. Keep in mind a lot of these people with 100k or so followers maybe switching there settings every day, but eventually if your settings are too aggressive you will get blocked then banned.
    Some times these people with lower accounts get banned quicker because they have too many spam reported on there IG with or without there settings. There is a lot of factors in place that we do not see.
    For example as I said before my account even with lower then general settings can trigger a automatic block because I have had a history of blocks and short term bans that I have used with different bots. So there for with my main/ aged account I can not be to frivolous.

    Hes probably selling something or mass blasting his account for actual currency trading something like that. I on the other hand work on leads that have to grow steady or else my followers will catch on and I will lose respect from my community and peers, which some people do not care about when using FL.

    I'm pretty sure he was asking at what stage (50k? 100k?) do you completely stop using a bot on your account - due to it being too risky.

    I know I wouldn't be using a bot on a 100k account personally.

    Ah I see, that is a interesting question, from reading the forums most people on the forum seem to want to stop at 50-100k. I think the algorithms changes after certain mile stones. Haha If I ever do get to 50k or even 100k with my slow ass :19: settings I just going to try to leave it running, my settings are so low in my option I am sure I just missed a ban wave if there was one.

    No problem, I got sick of buying bots and likes and shit. So anything to keep it going vs going hard. I am currently running 3 accounts two on FL and one on Ninjagram and I have had my Ninjagram for 1 year now working fine.

    That has been said many times these last few weeks but honestly. After look at most of these forum complains about bans, its kind of a given what is wrong with their account to be banned in the first place.

    Am I understanding this correctly - I've been using FL for about a few weeks, liking up to 3,000 photos a day.

    You're saying that I should calm it down, because they'll find me and permanently block me?

    Another question: Why is it MORE risky to use a bot on an account that has a higher following (55K and up)??

    It isn't riskier in the sense that 'follower count' matters. It's just that IG can be an unpredictable bitch, and sometimes, putting all your eggs in the same basket (botting) isn't the brightest idea. Big and small accounts are all equally susceptible to getting banned. It's riskier in the sense that nobody wants to automate a big account they have worked hard on -- because it just might get banned.

    There is no easy answer. When I first started out, I thought I'd stop at 30K because how cool would it be to have 30K followers. But then you get to 30K and realize the world still isn't at your feet, so let's go for 100K. The GREED!
    I've been at it for over a year and I'm nearing 180K. I have just begun swapping shoutouts with other big accounts (very subtle shoutouts, I must add. Subliminally, if you will. Haha!) and my account's been doing very well this past week without the bot. I went off of botting this past week upon Instagram's BIG BAN Crackdown.

    That all depends on how old your account is how aggressive your settings are and if you DM, comment, Unfollow and share, etc. Every account user is a bit different in some way, and to follow all the settings exactly according to what they tell you is kind of ludicrous.
