    I have been a long time lurker and have learned alot from this forum so i have decided to give back with a method i have been using for a while now. I personally create all my accounts i use with this method and use this to post all my craigslist postings automatically also.

    many programs have attempted to automate thing and many of them have problems or get closed down. You no longer have to wait for lengthy updates and bad bots. This method fixes all those problems and is super easy to learn! I personally create all my accounts i use and use this to post all my craigslist postings.


    Step 1: get imacros SCRIPTING edition and a macro program like macro express or AutoMate i use Automate v6.2.1 you can find them from lots of places like mininova and other torrent sites i got mine from demonoid and they might be on here too.

    step 2: learn the basics of imacros and automate6 its generally simple and explains itself and both programs have a large help file and site. I am willing to write an ebook on this stuff if their is enough interest

    step 3: once you got the basics down you can dive into the key part to the operation, visual basic scripting(VBS) now VBS can be used alongside imacros and provides a TON more functionality for imacros, heres an example of one VBS http://wiki.imacros.net/Random-Numbers.vbs. Here is a small adaption on how you might want to use it with a snipet of the code from the random numbers vbs code

    Randomize
    rn = cint (rnd()*5 + 1)


    select case rn
    case 1:
    firstname = "mark"
    case 2:
    firstname = "jack"
    case 3:
    firstname = "steven"
    case 4:
    firstname = "luke"
    case 5:
    firstname = "mike"
    case else:
    firstname = "erik"
    end select

    'Set the variables for imacros
    iret = iim1.iimSet("-var_firstname", firstname)


    So basically when a VBS runs it generates variables for imacros and in this case randomly picks one of the names and then sends it to imacros which uses those variables where you need them. I personally have it randomly choose one of 9000 first names and 15000 last names along with several random letters and numbers for the thousands of gmails and craigslist usernames inputs and such on signup so EVERY signup is unique.

    step 4 - Captchas

    now this is the part that plaques most people. How to get past the captchas. Well I use a captcha service beatcaptchas.com which has the best deals i have found by far, it starts at 8 dollars for 1000 captchas which = .008 a captcha down to 300 for 50000 which =.006 a captcha. Its directly made for imacros and you basically just plugin a couple lines of their code which is on the site and you never have to worry about captchas again.

    step 5-autuomation
    I use automate 6 because i need to change my ip quite often. the key for me was finding when to trigger when to disconnect/reconnect what i used was the wait for pixel feature, you pick several pixels on the screen and when the screen matches all those pixels it passes that step so the last step of my imacros macro i had it go to a site with unqiue colors and setup the wait pixel step so everytime it went to that site it would trigger the step and go onto whats next. So my automate 6 script looks like:

    Loop 1000 times(if i want to create 1000 accounts)
    run createyahooacounts.vbs
    wait for pixels command(i have 5 pixel colors on diff parts of the screen it needs to see at the same time)
    disconnect internet
    reconnect internet
    end Loop

    *Imacros does have a built in dialup disconnect/recconect code/setting also and it works with some aircards

    I know this may sound confusing and there is likely an easier way of doing this but this is what i have been using for a while and it works great and you will likely understand this step better once you play with the program.

    you could also use windows scheduler in place of macro programs but i do not know how you would change your ip.

    STEP 6- saving your accounts
    this part is simple I just extract the text right after I input it and then use the imacros command for saving extracted text for example

    step 1 input username
    step 2 extract username
    step 3 input password
    step 4 extract password

    so when im done I have a nice clean text/csv file that has the info I need
    and looks like this

    username,password
    username2,password2
    username3,password3

    STEP 7 -extra stuff
    another key thing is making an error macro for when thigns go wrong or you get the captcha wrong. You input what macro to run in your VBS script and when the error hits it will run the error macro you choose. Basically what i do is cut out all the stuff leading up to the captcha and just have from the captcha on being the error macro and this works perfectly.

    If you have any questions and im sure you guys will PM me and hopefully i can help you

    I will give it a try, but it seems too much technical for me.

    I do not mean to pick you out, but I really believe its comments like these that answers why most noobs won't make any money. At least you said you will give it a try. Yes it is kinda technical, but you have to learn!!!

    Everyone is looking for the next step by step guide to make you money. Well guess what... If you are seeing it then thousands of others eyes are seeing it too. You need to LEARN and try different things. I am going to jump into learning Macros and automation because I truly believe that this guide is probably worth so much more than anyone realizes.

    This guy should be getting thanks left and right, but since its a little on the technical side most people probably stopped reading it after the first technical step.

    Please be open to learning and be prepared to put time into this. Internet marketing whether its black or white hat has a learning curve. Yes there are lazy short cuts but even in those cases you must cover your foot prints.

    Please be open, thank this person for their guide. Think about the power you would posess if you could automate ANYTHING, just by learning a little programming.

    So thank you for kicking me in the butt to go ahead and learn something that actually requires me to think and apply myself!

    I'm using Macro Scheduler for quite some time already, and I'm happy with it's functions. I'm also interested to know what do you guys think about this program, can it compare with Imacros and Automate? Also an ebook about macro programing would be very welcomed.

    Nice tute mate. I haven't read it all, as I'm a lazy bastard, but I intend to.

    Automation is key in most IM projects - although often flawed when using basic email/HTML methods - yours seem very thorough however.

    Thanks again. Bookmarked!

    I know there are quite a few program such as imarco around eg. autoit. Anybody can recommend which is the easiest to learn but able to achieve most of what we are going to do eg. creating accounts ?

    Quite possibly one of the most helpful posts i've seen.

    Quick question...How do import a raw list of names into the format you have below? I'm sure there is a quick way and you haven't typed it all manually?

    Code:
    select case rn
    case 1:
    firstname = "mark"
    case 2:
    firstname = "jack"
    case 3:
    firstname = "steven"
    case 4:
    firstname = "luke"
    case 5:
    firstname = "mike"

    There is a way to input from a csv file. Look it up on the imacros wiki

    How about if you throw together some scripts for these programs and then people can learn by using those...then you teach people how to edit those to fit their needs.

    I have used Macro Express earlier to automate proxy scanning and saving..
    It worked perfectly.

    Great post and contribution. I actually started my hacking career with a macro program back in the bad old days (I quickly migrated to accessdiver) so I can relate to this fully. The only bit I could never get around was the captcha stuff so adding that bit in was a real eye opener for me, I didn't know such a service existed.

    Anyway thanks a lot, I'm going to give this a go. Now to write a delphi program to create unique usernames, if anyone wants a copy when it's done give me a holler, might save you from messing with VB (cos it sucks LOL).
