    I am trying to step into Instagram's world, created 8-9 IG PVA yesterday.
    But when I try to comment, I get an error. It happens on small accounts too. I can do other activity (liking and following) without any problem.

    Is there any limitation for new accounts? If yes, then what should I do to get out of this?

    Edit: The problem wasn't with simple text, its happens when I mention someone in the comment. I just did a test, and all account posted simple text comment successfully.
    But the problem now is mentions. Why can't I do it and how can I overcome this issue?

    Same thing happened to me on a new account last week. Just upload a few pics and wait a day and it should be fine.

    Uploading pictures to tons of account will be pain in the ass.
    But did it solve your problem with mentions in the comments?

    I can't say whether the pictures are what solved the problem, I just uploaded them because it was a new account and I wanted it to seem more legit. If you don't want to do that just wait a day and see if you you are able to mention people. Maybe try uploading on a few and waiting on the others and see if it makes any difference.

    No problem now, I found a way to upload pictures to all of my accounts at once.
    as you said, Uploaded 2 pictures on each account and now I will wait at least 48hrs to see if I can do mentions.
    Thanks.

    mentioning people seems to get quite limited on IG now. Even if you tag/mention someone on your pictures, it gets restricted. Already noticed that many accounts which aren't PV at first get asked for a PV after uploading a picture mentioning someone (for example such as giving credits). Tried it some times already. Only accounts where I don't give any credit (which is bullshit) survive. :)

    seems like IGs trying to fight spammy mentions, especially on fresh accounts.

    Always easier to age an account 2-3 days before doing any activities. Should be no different here

    New accounts need to be aged before they can do mentions without getting banned.
    Upload atleast 5 pictures on each account, the profile picture seperately, also change the bio. Wait for a day, then start warming them up little by little. In a month or so your accounts will be ready to do mentions.

    The dream is free, the grind is sold seperately.

    Yeah, IG is cracking down just like facebook did a few years back. Botting uploads and other menial tasks has started to become more beneficial than before.

    Thanks guys for all your suggestions.
    I am trying to do some natural activities with those accounts and will let them age for at least 1 week.

    I would recommend you to use an aged account instead of a new one on a proxy where you have already been banned!?

    Are you commenting with spam? Instagram picks up on comments that have the same content pretty easily. I recommend switching your comments out a lot

    No, no mass spamming neither I am trying to grow followers.
    I am just trying to do 10 comments per day per account, each comment include 3 mentions.
