Reason New Accounts Are Being Banned?
« on: April 17, 2017, 06:18:37 PM »
I just got 5 accounts banned in the last 5 days (burning 5 private proxies forever from Pinterest). I got this message for each ban below. The part about "saving lots of unwanted or repetitive stuff" seems like the only rational explanation for the bans as the others don't apply. I know SM2 downloads up to 1000 images per keyword entered. My suggestion to you Jon is to add a feature to allow less download images perhaps even have the amount of downloaded images to correlate to amount of pins the user has scheduled.  You understand? 

For instance, say I want to pin 25 images to a board per day, have SM2 download may 50% +/- more images for a possible total of 38 for the day. Then a fresh 38 for the next day. This will keep accounts under the radar and much less susceptible to a ban.  I'm thinking something like this will prevent the ban issue.

SM2 does not download images. The number you see in the column beside each pinning job is the number of BOARDS AVAILABLE from which a Pin could be chosen.
