    Sup Blackhatters!

    I am facing now a big problem with Tumblr.
    It recently limited a number of people who reblogged a post and now we can see only 200-1000 people.
    Thus, our bot cant do bulk scraping :(

    I use to follow around 60K people per day, and , of course, we need massive scraping for that...

    Anyone solved this problem?

    p.s. bot's search doesnt provide you enough people to follow

    Thanks in advance for your advises.

    They did an update today and now you can't follow people from post's notes. I can't help you with your problem, but I can agree that on a post it says "3000 notes" and they show only 100-200.

    It only seems to be affecting one of my Tumblr accounts (out of a dozen or so) so far.

    On the actual post, tumblr reduced the numbers that are shown. However, there are ways around this and I just got it confirmed that the new update of TumJazz is back to being able to search all notes (this user confirmed they got 300k)


    For how long this will work, I don't know. They stopped showing all items via the page, maybe they will stop it for the new way as well at some point....



    Maybe not manually, but you can pull all you need to do it programmatically :)
