    My account


    ●Personal and only account
    ●Almost 5K followers /following less than 1,000
    ●2+ years old
    ●No bots at all; all manual.
    ●Only use Instagram app.


    So I get my followers by just liking pics from people that I find on the likes page of big accounts. I usually do the top three and get anywhere from 20-100 followers a day. Last night I had maybe liked 50 pics and I got an alert that said


    "Action Not Allowed
    This post can't be liked right now..."


    And it said to tell them if they made a mistake. I decided to tell them and just wrote that I didn't know why I got that alert and asked if they could fix it. I tried liking a pic like 20 mins later and it worked. Then I tried liking two an hour later and that worked too. Was that the right move to tell them instead of ignore it?


    Now I'm just wondering if my account is "flagged" or put on a watch list now or something like that? And if I'm gonna be getting a lot more "like bans"? Are they gonna keep getting longer? Is there a permanent "like ban"?

    Just take a day or two off liking for a bit and you'll be good to go. Doesn't hurt to just take a break

    Im pretty sure you liked a photo that got deleted between the time that you found it/searched the hashtag and to liked it.

    If everything is as you say, then all is OK. I have the same problem few times with my private account where I like only my friends photos.
    Probably it was instagram glitch or bug.
    Nothing to worry about.

    Are you sure? I'm not trying to be argumentative. But other times when I tried to like a phot that's been deleted, the little heart just won't light up. I don't get an alert. This was the whole alert that popped up.

    "Action Not Allowed
    This post can't be liked right now.
    We restrict certain content and actions to protect our community. Tell us if you think we made a mistake."


    And then it had an option to click Ignore or Tell Us. Tell Us took me to like an Instagram help page.

    Using or not using bots you should give your instagram account a rest sometimes. If you are hungry about building it fast you will probably end up banned.
