    Hey ya'll, i'll get right to the nitty gritty off the bat.

    I'm looking to buy a bunch of data used to populate profiles, this data doesn't have to be 'real' (meaning it doesn't nor shouldn't have to belong to an actual person living on this planet, it can be entirely fictional). The final work can be submitted in seperate .txt files per each category.

    Things such as, but not limited to : first names, last names (both genders), North American cities, Languages, Religions,Movies, books, tv shows, athletes, photos (both male and female), music etc etc etc etc etc nothing fancy or super complicated in the least. The important thing is the volume -- each category will need to have thousands of different entries, E.G thousands of different books.txt, thousands of different athletes.txt, etc etc for each category that i need.

    This is probably a job best suited for someone with a strong background in automation (such as coding your own web-scraping / data-mining bots), or someone who already has access to the aforementioned data. Compensation will be very fair, and a complete list of categories will be provided to prospective freelancers. Please only contact me if you completely understand what im asking for and have a strong grasp of the english language, i'm not going to be holding your hand every step of the way (You wouldn't believe how many PM's ive gotten for past job offers telling me they're the perfect candidates, and then asking me to teach them step by step how to complete the job!)

    Communication and reliability are very important to me, so if you're just going to send me some shitty PM written in engrish, dont expect any replies! I am an easy person to work with as long as you are offensively incompetent and are able to keep your word.


    Please PM me and i'll give you the pertinent details and if we both decide that we make a good team, we can discuss compensation and the other details.

    So for cliff notes :

    - Basically need about 15 different categories of profile data (firstnames, lastnames, movies, books, songs, etc) - ALL IN ENGLISH

    - Each category will need many thousands of legit entries, 1 per line in a .txt file

    - It isnt rocket science! Should be very doable for someone who excels at parsing/scraping data

    As a note to all applicants : I WILL EXPLICITLY make a post stating when i have found someone to take on this job, so dont be discouraged if you see alot of replies to this thread
    , i may not have hired any of those people.....
