    I've been playing around with the connection settings and trying to find the ideal.

    I find that high connection settings will understandably get the list done quicker but also have alot lower success.

    On the other hand low connection settings will be way slower but loads of successes. For each of the above I had 100 connections and 4 respectively.

    Now I'm trying to figure out which is best because with the fast poster it has lower successes but I can do several runs in a fraction of the time the low connections one can.

    For example I have one instance of SB running on 100 connections and have run a 30k list through several times and even another list I think of 70k or so. It completes probably in less than 2 hours. This only gets like a few K successes or so each time tho at a guess.

    On the other hand I have a 70k list in another instance that I've been running for like 2 DAYS now and that is up to 13k successes on 50k of the list. It's so slow though that it is almost as slow as the slow poster probably and wonder if slow poster might offer even better results.

    So anyone else offer more info on what might be the best settings?

    I have been trying to do the maths of what is ideal time vs. effort wise but it has been confusing me. I guess fast poster is better if I look quickly at the stats above.

    Thoughts?

    I run 20% of my total proxies as connections, so if I harvest 100 proxies I run 20 connections. (realistically I usually harvest around 30 proxies each time) I found that running more connections than I had proxies resulted in a lower success rate.

    The problem I see with the long slow run is you risk one or more of those proxies getting exhausted mid way through the run.

    I have however only had SB for a few weeks, so maybe someone with a bit more experience will offer other advice.

    With regards the proxies getting exhausted...

    I am using a few (semi) private proxies I got from fiver one someone's recommendation...I'd recomend them too as I've seen good results (4 for $5 for a month)..they are shared but only between a few ppl I think.

    Anyhow with those I think there is less chance they get exhausted since you are running low connections if it's only like 2 or 3 connections per proxy that is pretty much the same as a human user esp. I am guessing if you set timeout to high as it takes longer to go from one to the next.

    I just set the low connections as it gives me a higher success rate. I like just to "set and forget". Let it run over the night and only check up on it once in a while.

    If you really need the speed, then purchase another license and run it from your own computer and from a vps at the same time. $57 in really not that much if speed is important for you.

    You can find an optimal settings by using Addons -> Scrapebox Bandwidth Meter
    The main reason of comment posting failure is because of insufficient bandwidth. By using bandwidth meter, you can monitor your bandwidth usage and adjust to suitable connections.

    I think I've ascertained high is better now since I did a 90k run on 100 conns and a 70k run on the slow one.

    On the 90k fast one I had 16k completed within a day/night.

    With the slow one it took 3 days or so for 17k.

    I find 30 connections on Fast Poster to get the best success, with 50 the next best, if you're looking for a bit more speed.

    I've never noticed a difference between connections when it comes to posting. Only at the most extreme ends. I think it's more about the quality of your proxies.

    I've tested 25 connections with just 8 private proxies, all the way up to 150 connections with those 8 same proxies and my results were pretty much the same every time.

    Haven't tested much above 200 connections since I'm using a home internet line. No need to put that much strain on the connection.

    With a 30 Mbps connection, I run 10 Private proxies with 50 connection on fast poster. I can complete a 100k list in under 10 hours with a 50% success rate on a RAW list. Majority of failed are due to Captcha, Closed Comments, or bad connection to site.
