Took the time today to learn how to write spintax comments. Questions though!

    Hey guys. I purchased FollowLiker earlier this week and have spent the last 4 days learning the software. I feel like I've almost mastered it but felt like my comments were lacking (only 50 manual created ones).

    I decided after hearing so much about spintax to create my own. But can you help me improve? I feel like my comments are so damn vague! But on the other hand I feel like they need to be. Yesterday FollowLiker posted "This was the motivation I needed!" on a picture of a pregnant woman trying to sell cocoa butter. :eek: I laughed for at least 20 minutes because she responded with 'Im happy it motivated you and good luck!' LMAO!

    Basically I am trying to avoid this. I am in the fitness niche if that helps. I have came up with 4 sentences, three of which have 120 different variations and a much larger one that has 2,880 variations. How many of these sentences should I write to be safe? And how many varieties of each sentence should I shoot for?

    Thanks

    FYI. Don't go too deep with your spintax as far as nesting goes. The sites you use to check your comments may parse correctly, but FL will not. It doesn't parse well if you have several nested layers.

    from one newbie to another, do you think you could assist with some of your settings? Also, if you figure a way out w/ the Spintax could you share? Thanks man

    When you say nesting, do you mean when you use double brackets like this {{word|word|word}|word} ??

    If so, I never went this far. Good info to have though. But I kept just multiple single brackets. Ive checked only 3 comments by FL so far this morning and all 3 came out perfect so I'm pretty optimistic with how its setup.

    Depends on the age of your account. Mine is 2.5 years old.

    Likes 550-600 / 18-25 sec delay
    Follow 350-400 / 55-67 sec delay
    Comment 130-150 / 54-62 sec delay

    But I change this values day to day. This is a 'high' day. I have pyramided up the last 4 days. Tomorrow will be 800 likes, no comments, and Unfollows (250-300). Its my theory to always always switch it up!

    Im averaging about 100-110 followers a day but yesterday was strange. Only got maybe 60.

    Yes. 2 levels will work. 3 and more will fail.

    While I realize this is a somewhat old thread, I too battled with this conceptually. I would have liked to simply add one tweet with tons of nested spintax, and simply use the one tweet, but field limits come into play, and the dreaded 3 levels deep nesting issue.

    The only workaround/solution I envisioned and am employing now is simply to add the additional spintax by additional full text import lines, i.e. I simply duplicate the spin multiple times with minor revisions. Of course this can lead to large txt files, which might become a problem as I continue to scale.

    Hey FL - it would be super nice and easy for you guys to code an external image mechanism. For example, I have a PHP script that simply rotates random images. I'd rather plug that url into FL, and have you guys pull the image with cURL or wget and inject it into posts based on that sort of a function. Currently running FL on a strong VPS, but already running out of space due to maintaining large image collections. You guys should really do a bit better in these regards.

    Anyone know if there is a followliker forum or suggestions thread somewhere in the world?
