    I need a bot that will scrape every user from hookit.com. Once the users have been scrapped I will need the bot to message every member. If im prompted with a captcha I will need it to callback to a decaptcher service to solve it.

    Im not sure what the best way to do this is but I need this done cheaply, and I only plan on using it for personal use a few times.

    I was told another method to do this would be through sending http packets.

    Since it's custom made basically, the programmer doesn't really care if you use it once or 10000 times. It's the same amount of work, that needs to be done from his side, in both cases.

    Sending http packets, is a more "low" technique of accomplishing this, than using a browser, and emulating certain actions.
    And doing it using http requests costs more, because it takes more time to do it in that way. I can just tell you that even a simple scraper and sender for usual websites, using http requests, would go around $150-$300. And you also need captcha integrated as well.
    Are you in this budget range ?

    Yeah that sort of kind of falls in my budget range. How long would a bot like this last before they come out with a patch for it? I would like to be able to get a couple uses out of it. If they did make a patch couldn't someone program it to exploit the site again?

    Ive been a member forever but havent really had a use for it until now. Im launching an action sports product so this will be a way to help advertise. If I get something working I will try and remember to let you know how its going.

    It's really up to the website/app admin/owner how much it will last. It can last one day, or one year. Also depends how many users are, how many of them are bots, etc Anyway, usually this type
    of things are updated like once a year, from my experience, if they are not "big players".
    About patching it, that goes to the updates category. It's up to your developer if he wants to update it, for what fees, or if even free for a while.
    Anyway, sent you a PM with my skype.
