    Has anyone noticed that ever since instagram released the 4.0 app update that there are new hourly limits on liking pics? Am getting captcha'd a lot more often now than before. Anyone know what this new limit is?

    Me and my crew have woken up this morning to the same news. 2 of us get the bad request/capture after 2K likes. Can everyone else please share their experiences. @unmichael did you manage to run up to 20K before getting captures?

    I've run an autoliker on my account for about 9 months now (account is over 100 weeks old). A few months ago I was experiencing captchas but I havn't gotten one in a long time. Today I woke up to my first captcha in a while.

    In order to reduce unwanted spam, Instagram has recently placed a cap on the number of people that any account can follow at 7,500. This helps ensure that users do not violate our Community Guidelines.This change affects accounts that currently have less than 7,500 followers.

    set your delays 3 seconds and you will be fine.
    I set my delays 2 seconds and got lots of verification. I follow over 20k per day and got 200+ followers, yet not banned.

    Are you liking, following, and commenting at the same time? Or just liking pictures?

    I'm not getting captcha if I just like pictures with a 5 second delay on xgram. However, is there any way to to like, follow, and comment on pictures and not get captcha or am I just being silly.

    Just like pictures from now on? If you guys don't mind me asking what are the best settings from your experience when using xgram or any instagram bot?

    Thanks
