    First Anniversary Combo Breaker
    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 got the same, I wonder if it will last a week?? It's so annoying a full week...

    I've had the odd ban in the past but it's only been 24-48 hours. I thought I had managed to spread out my Instagram comp entries and hadn't had a ban in ages, but I guess the advents mean I was entering more than usual. The notification that popped up showed the date the ban would end.

    Do people have a date which tells them when the ban ends, some people seem to know and some people don't??? Mine just says restricted activity blah blah and I've not been able to tag anyone since Friday, so frustrating at this time of year!

    Mine doesn’t have a length of time, it’s been 8 days so far. I’ve reported an issue as my account says all is fine but god knows if they even look at them

    In your profile, top right corner, 3 lines & report a problem. Have done it twice and no response or change yet though.

    I would be careful using that as a justification. Instagram appear to contradict themselves slightly on their stance with promotions/giveaways saying this:



    But then also having separate guidance on holding promotions/giveaways here:
