    Hi.

    I'm new around here, I've been searching the forum for hours and I couldn't find an answer, I'm a newb and I do my best to learn as much as possible and as fast as possible, however, I was hoping that some one could help me with tips to ease everything up.

    From what I understand there are lots of tools that extract e-mails from forums, found some on this site, however, I'm looking for a tool that can extract user-names list from forums such as SMF and save them in .txt file or something similar.Actually I was looking for a tool that can send mass PMs to the users of a forum, but I doubt I can find anything like that for free, so having the members list would allow me to send the PMs manually separating users using a comma since the member lists on the two forums I've targeted are not that big.

    Any help/tips would be appreciated. (Sorry for any possible grammar mistakes) and Thanks in advance.

    You should get Zennoposter, one of the best SEO tools around which you cant each to do stuff.

    It can also do what you described....

    uBot is a good one also, much easier than Zennoposter with a $1 two week trial. They don't disable as much as Zenno in the trial either. Once you get the handle of it, you could create a bot for this in a few minutes.

    Well, right now I'm really confused and doing my best to at least get an idea about what I need to do, I'm a total beginner, there are things I don't yet understand.Glad I've found this forum though.

    Forums usually have "members" page, where all users are listed. Copy / Paste them in text file (notepad2, notepad+ etc) , page by page, and with search / replace functions erase all except usernames. To do it on a long run bots are ok idea but if you are a total noob, this is faster.
    By the way, forum scripts are not stupid and sending X private messages will get you banned or sending will be very slow, like one PM every 45 seconds or so.

    The site/forum I've currently targeted didn't seem to be that smart, I've sent about 150-200 PM's manually, without having any problem nor restriction.The forum is about referral exchanges and the site admin seems to not care about spamming.
