Whaaaat?? There's got to be more context to this.
Absolutely none, just wanted to scroll through instagram but it’s broke, i still can’t do anything.
Close the app and reload it. Resets it for me each time.
I have, multiple times not sure what’s going on.
You lost an arm
No arm, but I still have the hand!
In case you didn't know, backslashes, asterisks, and underscores need to be escaped using a backslash, so you should've typed
Keyboards _should_ do it automatically when inserting emoticons imo but they don't.
Yours looks like it has a shattered arm and a hunchback... at least it's happy still.
Hehe, i meant this is exactly what you need to type to get the right thing. I put it in a code block so it doesn't escape.
This is what happens if i type those ¯\\\_(ツ)\_/¯
It’s an error. Do you think they designed the app to not work on purpose? What about this is asshole design?
It’s not a limit on scrolling. Every so often Facebook’s network will act up and WhatsApp’s and Instagram will go down with it. It’s shifty and annoying but it’s not purposely implemented.
It's not trying to shift the blame. When the servers start acting up it mostly because something internally happened that makes the server think that the action is being spammed. It's something that's implemented to prevent people from spamming the server is just being shit.
Instagram's major design problems are not some shonky retry code.
Laughs in react native
huh. i got that message around the same time, it would full on crash when i tried to DM someone. maybe instagram’s servers were fucked up or something, causing some accounts to be action blocked?
Same thing happened to me
Strange pretty sure it’s not happening anymore.
This is obviously not by design, it could be an glitch on their server or on your end (I suggest a reinstall), but this is not designed like this on purpose. So no assholedesign…
Not an asshole move - either Instagram servers are overloaded, or the API thinks you're a bot for whatever reason (e.g you scrolled too fast or too much)
A more appropriate place would be r/crappydesign, and even that's a strech
Tried trying later?
Oh no! Software millions use is buggy for one person. Better go run to asshole design and whine like a baby about it.
Not asshole design
It would appear that you are pressing the wrong button.
is there a third option????
Pov: you are a flie
Again, someone who has absolutely no idea what design entails complaining about something that has nothing to do with design on a sub meant for design.
It’s them saying they limit something to protect their community. Them limiting the one function and making it out to be to protect the community instead of them admitting that it’s an error with their severs is something I would call assholedesign.
I think it’s because you’re in “similar posts” this happens to me too and it just stops after a bit. But the fact that it keeps giving you the error is weird. It’s always annoying because I’m normally just mindlessly scrolling
Well tell them!
if you keep watching i did press it a lot
I know lol
This is just a bug with a placeholder error message put in. They're not intentionally limiting your usage of Instagram, well I guess they are, that's why that message is there. This specific behaviour, however, is an unintentional bug. The error message is normally to stop thing like API spam but it could be a problem with the application, using the wrong err message because it doesn't know the problem exactly. It could also be a problem on Instagrams end, returning an error that the application can't explain.
What did you do to cause this? Ive used instagarm on my iPhone many times before but this...this is just off...
I opened instagram and scrolled.
That crap happened to me yesterday out of nowhere! I reported a problem in the help center on the profile definitions and a few minutes later it was fine. Not sure if it’s related but it’s worth a try…
It's looks like shadowban...
You'll may to take your time for rest using instagram, you may to Temporary Close Account.
ok but like r/softwaregore or somewhere else would be for this post
I used to have Instagram and they shadow banned all the flipping time for no reason it was stupid😅😅😅😅👌🏻
I actually think it’s a fantastic feature. In a world saturated with social media it’s good to see one of the bigger platforms limiting over use, I would think a conglomerate like Instagram wouldn’t dare do this but I’m happy to find out they do. Like cmon 3 hours of scrolling and then telling you to stop shouldn’t be a bad thing, right?
I agree with your point apart from the context behind this is i had just opened the app and scrolled down about 4 posts.
It's to prevent auromated scraping...
Wow Instagram really thinks your that big of a dick
Just delete it. Trust me, its worth it
Honestly may as well at this point. But if I do that I will also force myself to delete reddit.
