It appears failed to scrape all followers

Post by Bri » Wed Apr 21, 2021 12:32 pm

It appears failed to scrape all followers, cancelling action to avoid unfollowing followers, please run action again.

I'm trying to unfollow non-followers.

No matter what settings I chose on the unfollow tab, even with unfollow from list, it keeps failing, can you see any reason why in the logs?

thanks

The results page returned, doesn't contain any / any new followers so scrape stops. The num results doesn't match the reported number so the action cannot run.

Logs don't have the response of 0 results, so I cannot say more than the above, just the program did not find any new results on the page for "some reason".


But due to the number of your followers, this is going to be hard to perform with this action setup as things currently stand.

Let me make some changes going forward to improve this to avoid over scraping and get back to you

Next update will help will this, although you will need to perform a complete followers scrape first. If you already have this data, you can add it to the program via


%appdata%\rootjazz\instadub\follower\<username>.txt

one per line, ID or URL

I'll let you know when ready

I haven't pushed the update yet. Was waiting for another update to be completed, but then got pulled away to more urgent updates required for another program.

Sorry. I'll try and get it pushed up today

IG is seemingly not letting the program scrape all followers.
If the program cannot scrape all, it will stop. As it cannot complete the action.

Going forward, ONCE ID can pull all followers they will be stored so you only need to detect NEW followers.

For you, this isn't much help, UNLESS you already have yoru followers, in a list, then you can add them to the specified path, which the program will read and use.


goto SCRAPE tab
Scrape your followers. You may need to do it a few times using MAX_ID to start again from save place to try and get them all. Then once you have them, let me know and I can explain the next steps



Regards,
Martin

I am unfamiliar with the MAX_ID part, I'm going to try and scrape the followers with a different account, my account has had problems for a long time, it could be IG being a **** with me 😂

Did you remove the EDIT POST feature, and only now let us DELETE our forum posts?


I've tried scraping from another account, and still only bringing back 'followers: total scraped: 4100'
