    hey everyone
    some of my pinterest accounts are being prompted to fill out captchas when i pin
    this is strange because i have 5 accounts on the same ip but only 1 of the 5 accounts is being blocked
    does anyone know the reason this is happening?
    i am using pinblaster and anonymous private proxies
    i will appreciate any help :)

    Yes, you need to have a randomized wait time between 7-26 seconds between pins. Also, if your tool is browser-based (haven't checked out pinblaster) it needs to revisit different sites between pins so that the referrer from one pin isn't another unrelated pin.

    i am not going fast at all, i have a 1 minute delay between each accounts pin and there are about 10 - 15 accounts in rotation.
    so each account is pinning once every 10 - 15 minutes. that's too fast with pinblaster?

    No, that should be fine. Are the proxies bound to each account (that is, 1 proxy per account and the same proxy used each time)? Also, so far I've only been hit with a captcha once using PPCD and that was after a day of pinning over 1k pins on one account with almost 0 delay. I also had a day of 800+ pins with a 17-45 second delay and no captcha, all on one account.

    Are they rotating regularly or randomly? Is it the same wait time each time between pins? Both of those leave footprints.

    i have 5 accounts per private proxy but only a couple of those accounts are being blocked.
    my accounts are rotating regularly each minute. and yes, it's the same wait time each time between pins which is 1 minute

    I would switch that up. Can pinblaster set up randomized delays within a specified range? Can it do randomized account rotation?

    Also are your accounts getting straight up BLOCKED or just hit with a captcha?

    Pinblaster is capable to randomizing accounts and setting a large delay between pins which I highly recommend.

    guys, i think i figured out how to un-block accounts.
    you need to manually login to the account, try to post a pin, then enter captcha.
    that pin will not be posted, but if you try a 2nd time you will be able to pin :)
    i know my accounts are manually able to pin now, but today i will see if they are un-blocked with pinblaster.
    i will update

    Also, be careful that you don't trip their ghosting algorithm. If that happens, your activity will appear to continue as normal, except your pins won't be posted, you won't be able to comment/follow/like, etc. This is usually lifted in 24-48 hours though, so if you hit this roadblock just take that account out of your rotation for a day or two.
