    I'm using this setting to scrape more active users than just the most recent followers of "x" account.

    I'm adding 100+ links to scrape users from, My doubt is if FL will scrape every link in a fixed order like:

    scrape link 1
    scrape link 2
    ...
    scrape link 100
    goes back to 1

    or it'll take a random link and scrape users, leading the program to scrape a link twice and giving 0 results since users were already scraped. like it does with captions while sharing pics.

    scraping the same link twice might be a problem since I'm filtering the generated list, leaving like 10~ out of every 100 scraped users after this, then re-scraping the same link throws a 0 users to follow out of 90 scraped.

    That is a question to ask support about. I doubt no one will go this far as to figure out how FL is scraping from a list.

    Well, I'm facing a new problem, Im adding a list of 800 pics to scrape users from but after several hours the scraped list is only about 1600~ users, this pics got plenty of comments, I know theres a limit of comments you'll able to see (150-200~?) like with users who liked, but still, 800 links x 100 comments = 80k users, I'm using few big accounts to scrape this pics links, so I know theres plenty of new users, also unticked "scrape only top result". So, what I'm doing wrong?

    does anyone know any free bots that scraped a list of people that liked a photo?
