Question

why+can't+I+follow+people


Userlevel 1
I tried to follow people I want to listen to but soundcloud suddenly won't let me follow:? I don't understand why I can't follow up to 2k if I want. I'm no where near that. Soundcloud was great for a while why are they suddenly taking my paid subscription away.

You’ve been put in a temporary block There are currently limits in place for the number of follow actions that you can make within 24 hours and for re-following the same accounts within a short period of time.

If you are repeatedly flagged for these kinds of activities it’s possible that your account will be temporarily blocked from following or unfollowing any more accounts. The duration of these blocks will increase in length each subsequent time you hit these limits.

Please understand that these limits are in place to address community complaints about accounts overusing, or using features in a way other than as they were intended.

How do I know what these limits are if you keep changing them every time I come off a Block? this time it was 6 people. what will it be next time? I am a new paying user, It would be nice to not be treated like a criminal for liking music. Of course I am going to follow a bunch of people in the beginning. But to keep changing how many before I am blocked again is just cruel.

I _m been blocked for had reached the 2.000 followed users, I guess, but I don _t understand why , because I _m been using soundcloud for 5 years, not followed those all people in a small period of time. I _m paying to be a pro user , I would like supporting music artists & producers & know about their new productions , and now this is not possible to me . What I have suppose to do? unfollow all those people ? Stop using Soundcloud no more? I think this is not fair play . I never spamed any other user, I _m sure that Soundcloud doesn _t have any complain about me , only used for listening to music that I like , supported artists , look for new music and producers for using in my mixes sets , cause I work like a Dj as well. I hope that I _ll be allowed to keep following/ supporting producers & labels , listening to music there soon , when they fixed that error with my profile.
