I can't get this to work as I'm getting a bunch of errors. Done most of the bug fixes, but now left with 3 things that won't run it.

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "example.py", line 6, in <module>
from src import InstaBot
File "/Users/pc-1/Desktop/instabot.py-master/src/__init__.py", line 1, in <module>
from .instabot import InstaBot
File "/Users/pc-1/Desktop/instabot.py-master/src/instabot.py", line 6, in <module>
from .userinfo import UserInfo
File "/Users/pc-1/Desktop/instabot.py-master/src/userinfo.py", line 5, in <module>
import requests
ImportError: No module named requests

I have this same error can someone help? it seems the module called 'request' can't be found but i have PIP installed which is the library for the modules right?

in your shell type

Code:
pip install requests

requests is a HTTP library for making http requests:
get page / post data etc

A VPN will just change the IP you route through. So you don't NEED one. If is just your main account, then just use your local IP as that is what you normal use when on your phone with wifi.

IF you want to run 10s / 100s fo accounts you NEED proxies (highest quality)

You need to install PIP for fakeuseragent. Check this video tutorial: youtube.com/watch?v=V8P0UCrACA0
Anyway, just to make you aware that the bot is no more working... there are bunch of errors.

That's the problem with free bots. They rarely get updated. Better option to choose a paid and cheap one I.M.O.

So I’ve been running this python script on a old computer for the last 24 hours and I’ve gain 50 new followers so far... And I’ve haven’t had to do nothing but watch... now I do have some questions, I’m a complete noob at python but I can follow directions, I had this script running in less than 10 mins...

For the length of time for which a user is to be unfollowed it was original set at

1 * 60 which is one minute

I had it running at one hour which is 1 * 60 *60 and it was working fine until I had to restart the computer.
When I run the script it’s now removing them at 1 minute mark... I checked the file with sublime text and it says its set for an hour.

I tried to set it for 2, 3, 4 hours and it would still remove them at the 1 min mark and it wouldn’t take until I set it for 5 hours which is 5 * 60 * 60 it started unfollowing people at the 5 hour mark.

Is there something I’m doing wrong? Or was it just a glitch that it happened to remove them at the 1 hour mark? I don’t have a problem removing them at 5 hour mark I’m just curious why it wouldn’t move themnat the 1 hour mark.

Can anyone come up with a simple tool for a complete novice? I have no idea how Python works. Anyone who can help through screen sharing on Skype?

Do you go to work and not expect to get paid? Asking someone to code a simple tool is 100s of hours of work, maintenance, support etc. Unlikely to find that.

You can try the Hire a Freelancer section, for someone to take the library and put something together to your requirements. But expect to pay a maintenance contract to keep it uppto-date, which can be a headache and ends up being more expensive, than just outright purchasing a program

You can't expect everyone to know everything. If there's someone to guide then it's fine.
