    Hello Blackhatworld

    Since Pinblaster lacks the schedule functionality i setup the following technique 10 minutes ago:

    Code:
    Scrape 1250 Users
    Set Follow Delay Time to 5 Minutes 
    Start Following
    
    Total Number of Followings per day = 288
    
    With this Technique i can leave my VPS for about 4 Days before i have to scrape new users.

    Now i think that pinterest maybe will bann my account when they see that its active 24 hours, even when i use the 5 minute delay.

    Someone have experience regarding to that question?

    Thanks in advance.

    Regards

    No, they won't. I was for a long time running 24/7 following 5,000 a day and unfollowing for days on end. You can do much larger numbers than these right now. I'd get your followers in before they do make changes to limit it for real.

    I've only slowed down out of sheer laziness.

    How many are you unfollowing a day and are you still able to follow 5000 per day without any problems?

    Always thought your post was meant ironic but yesterday i spoke with someone who follows 1200 people per day without problems.

    I now setup an account where i configured pinblaster to follow 2500 people in 24 hours, curious if it will get banned or not.

    You won't.
    They will block your follow function if you reach your limit.
    Can't say if that will change in the future but by now its just a follow block.
    Tried this on multiple Accounts.

    Followed over 5k people since yesterday and still no account banns or other limitations.

    Now i am curious, can i unfollow the whole day with 1 minute delay between each unfollow?

    Guys be careful with these numbers. I am currently running 300 follows per day on my accounts during 2 hours at random times and i'm still afraid of a ban. as a software engineer + developer myself and worked on so many websites before, i guarantee that pinterest knows you will spam but didn't do anything yet. Why? they are still building their anti-spam system, so they need a lot of data. Be careful of what you are doing before pinterest turns into the new FB :/ does 5000 make sense to you? come on :p

    I know, i followed for the last 3 months just 288 people per day on my two main account.

    Yesterday i switched to 1200 Followings over night and when i noticed that it wasnt banned i scraped 20.000 user and set it to 6-7k per day.

    it makes great sense since my accounts grow about 25x faster than before, from a viewpoints of the pinterest staff i dont know why they didnt regulated those numbers yet, my personal oppinion is that they know a great chunk of their user activity comes from bots, so they just bann the obvious spammers.

    All my profiles look very legit with attached websites who are profesionally made and quality pins.
