    My friend Alex is currently in a remix contest on beatport for Calvin Harris. If he wins the contest, Pepsi will fly him over to Ibiza where he will have the opportunity to open for Calvin Harris who's one of the biggest DJ's in the game right now. Currently he's #13 in votes and 13th in plays. Winning this contest would be huge for him, and any help my fellow BHW'ers can provide would be amazing.

    In order to vote, you have to sign up for beatport.com. I know most people hate signing up for sites, but it's a quick sign up process and they rarely send a ton of emails.

    Signup here:
    Code:
    https://accounts.beatport.com/register?referrer=%2Fsettings
    Confirm Email then Vote here:

    If you feel like voting takes too much time, you can share the vote link on fb or tweet it. That would be really appreciated. :)

    Thanks

    At this rate he is never going to win. You need to bot this out. Find an expert at this type of stuff and BH him to the top.

    We've tried, but it seems they have good protection in place like cookie and ip checks. And even though the account creation be automated, the verification needs clicking the link and then login in with the account. Then the voting is not a link, its some javascript button.

    And i don't think there is a tool that can automate all this. i might be wrong but this is why i'm asking you guys for help.

    And the competition isn't very far, the max is 179 atm, and i think with some help its doable.

    You may consider paying or doing it manually.

    Get a ton of proxies and email addresses and then vote with each one. It may be a lot of work (hell, maybe even many hours worth of work), but it is definitely worth it for the opportunity to go to Ibiza AND further his career.

    Devise a way to do this and lay it all out. This is totally possible. You have to think of the project in terms of "winning this contest will give me a trip worth $XXXX". Now you have a rough "payment" for your labor. If you are "earning" a few thousand by getting a free trip, then you should be able to spend a few hours devising a plan and executing!

    No harm in asking BHW members for help, but use your time more wisely to do this.

    I think the problem is it's not just based on votes though. It's based on votes, plays, and judging in general so even if they win the voting section there's no guarantee that they will win the actual competition.

    You absolutely need to automate this, no question about that.

    Now its true it requires account creation right, and needs to be verified by email.
    However, javascript is not required in order to automate this .

    On account creation, you first need to call this with a GET
    https://accounts.beatport.com/register?referrer=%2Fsettings

    Then just simply retrieve the cookies from there and do a simple POST to
    https://accounts.beatport.com/register/submit

    That's easy since you really don't have any of those values generated through javascript plus what makes it super easy is that all the values you simply submit are the email, password, first name, last name etc.

    So that part isn't hard.

    Now the second part on verifying email. you can do it with a simple php script on a hosting account that has the imap module enabled, so you can use it to retrieve the email and the link to verify your email.

    Now the login, oh don't even get me started how easy that one is.

    Its basically a simple POST to https://play.beatport.com/login
    with the only 3 variables, referrer, username and password.

    Let's move down to the voting.
    Wow, did it just easier than all the other 3 steps. Yeap!!!

    Using your buddies url
    all you really have to do is make a simple POST with absolutely nothing on the body, strange but true.

    http://play.beatport.com/contests/pepsi-calvin-harris-lets-go/4f9db29fb8ed74121f0002e4/votes

    and if the vote is successful you will get a reply like this

    {"has_voted": true, "votes": 90, "success": true}

    if you try already voted and try to vote again then you will get a reply like this

    {"msg": "You have already voted for this mix.", "has_voted": true, "votes": 90, "errors": ["wip"], "success": false}

    Yes you're right, we are getting good views on there and increasing, so that won't be much of a problem. Voting is being worked on right now. The only thing we know anything about is the judging part.
