    Hi! I'm not sure where I should post this, sorry if this is the wrong section.

    I love scraping and extracting data from websites, it's the only thing I know & like to do. I have a bunch of spreadsheet full of "useful" data that I never use.

    I'm currently -bored- out of ideas/sources to scrape from and I would like to know if you have anything you want scraped ?

    This is not a service and it won't become one, I just want something to have fun with!

    If you have some links with scraping challenges that would be great, thank you!

    Oh well, I guess I have some email addresses I scraped a long time ago : lawyers, accountants, fashion bloggers ... I did try to monetize the ones related to fashion but I quite after a while, not my thing.

    Thank you!

    I'm currently looking for help to scrape a forum - text w/ associated pictures. I could pay you for your services if you'd like.

    can you let me know if you're still interested in scraping something?
