Re: follows not being performed

Post by dariush90025 » Wed May 16, 2018 10:13 am

Hi there. I ceased all SCM activities for a couple of weeks, and ran a test yesterday. I logged into one of our accounts via the browser and attempted a manual follow, which worked. I then set up a follow action per my usual settings which you can see earlier in this thread, and let it run. I just checked the results. Here they are. Still zero follows. I just logged into the account manually via browser to try to test a follow, which was unsuccessful. I understand that I didn't take your advice here for lower follow settings which may have triggered Soundcloud's blocks, but shouldn't we have been able to get at least one or two followed successfully before the block drops? Please advise.

Re: follows not being performed

Post by dariush90025 » Wed May 16, 2018 10:20 am

also i just want to clarify your advised follow settings. you said:

per 24 hours: 7 days a week

Safe:
follow 80:
pause: 30-90 ( or more, spread your follows out through the day, could probably pause 300-900 and still hit the target


so does that mean:

max follow = 80
random pause 30-90
time period
repeat ?? hours num repeats ?
stop following at 2000
only follow once checked
ensure not following before attempt follow checked

but shouldn't we have been able to get at least one or two followed successfully before the block drops? Please ad
vise.


This is a hard question.
As you have tried 1 follow through browser and you got 1 successful follow ( not sure if it got reverted )

Then you tried to follow using bot and failed
then you tried to login to browser and failed instantly.


max follow = 80
random pause 30-90
time period
repeat ?? hours num repeats ?
stop following at 2000
only follow once checked
ensure not following before attempt follow checked

Please understand that he didn't provide any sure settings that will help you to follow and regardless not being tracked.
He just said the min follow amount.

I would suggest you to -

follow into small batches with hugher time dealy -


for example :


follow 10 users with 20 -30 secs interval and repeat after 30 - 40 mins. Just like this ( you'll get some benefit ).
Also, unfollow some accs while doing follow action - reduces your follount.

but the total follows per account per day shouldn't be more than 80, correct?
and you're saying to load up follow and unfollow actions for one account at the same time? we normally do follows, then unfollows. but if that's better to do then we'll definitely do it.

To be honest,

I said what is safe and works and is done by so many peoples.
If daily limit is 80 ( as told by admin )

Then split those follows

5 follow 1 hour , sleep
5 follow next hour , sleep
5 follow next hours.. so on.. but not in a row..

For unfollow - usually active users follows back within max 3+ days - by chance more ..

Unfollow small value on hourly basis.
Unfollow 2 per hour..
so on............


I think you did get my point.
The best ypou will know by testing yourself. :)

thanks. but i don't really know how to translate the advice you've given me into the fields on the Follow page. If you could give me that, I'd be very grateful.

max follow = 80, correct?
random pause = 1 hour? do i have to put 1 hour in seconds here? 3600 seconds to 3600 seconds?
time period?
repeat x hours? number of repeats?

a 429 is usually indicative of a soundcloud block.

Are you using a proxy? It could be a blacklisting.

Wait a day or two for the block to end

clear logs
HELP > LOGS > VIEW
delete all files in the folder

run a test action. Follow: 10 profiles.

If the issue persists, submit logs
HELP > LOGS > SUBMIT

then send your logs ID - the first 4 numbers is sufficient (displayed after successful uploading of logs)

I'm not using a proxy. When I first signed up for SCM I was under the impression that proxies are unnecessary if you only do follows and unfollows, and for ten accounts or under, which is the only thing I will do...

If you are using more accs then you need to use more proxys due to the fact to be unique to soundcloud.
If soundcloud catches you running multiple accs with same IP, your accs might be in trouble.

so you're saying that at my current rate of work (10 or less accounts, follows and unfollows only) I must use proxies?
