    4th ban a few moments ago. Commented on a friends post, 10 minutes after ban 3 was lifted, and got a message telling me I can't post anything until tomorrow. At least it gives me a chance to catch up with dailies etc

    How do you get the message? Do they send you a DM? When I have been banned during December I don't know when the ban will end so I get frustrated when trying to post and getting the dreaded restricted activity nessage again.

    I'm losing the will - my ban says this:

    Try again later. We restrict certain activity to protect our community.

    Its been over a week. Yet when I check my account status it says I can use all IG features with no restrictions?!

    ARAGHHHHHHHHHHH

    list of winners of these advents should be interesting as most of us blocked. Wonder if its just us in Britain, wonder if Americans can enter as Meta is American isn't it?

    I got a pop-up with the message.
    I've been trawling Instagram looking for comps that require a 'like' only  :D found a few so not all in vain

    I got the below on my second follow this morning.

    Try again later. We restrict certain activity to protect our community.

    I only follow 1100 accounts so nowhere near the 7500 limit, still can’t follow 12 hours later

    When I go into settings it says I have all features and no restrictions are showing

    I got a tagging/comment ban for a week! That takes me up to the 19th. So I'm avoiding insta for now. Though I've got the lurgy at the moment so the rest from advents is maybe a blessing in disguise?

    I've joined the ban club. This is my first ever ban - surprised it hasn't come sooner
