    So I am currently fleshing it out a bit and can also gauge whether there is a general interest by the users here in this forum or not.

    I am not selling the service YET, thats why this is not a sales thread (jfyi)

    Alright what is this thing all about: I am a coder and creative most of the time (when I get enough sleep lol).

    So I coded something that I set up for notifying me as soon as something happens in a specific field/area on the internet and also some kind of predefined action.

    More concrete: Lets say I am currently looking for a cheap housing to live in while I am at the university. However, most good cheap places will be gone far too quickly. So I used my tool, entered the site and when to notify me (when a new listing gets posted that fits my criteria) and then notify me. After a while I also added a predefined action, which was to contact the hosue owner automatically, sending them a predefined text. This way I was always the first to reach out to the owner before others.

    What are some other examples you can use that for.

    • Blog commenting: As soon as a new blog comment gets out, you can set to comment
    • Finding brand new lisitngs (for instance housings, freebies that are being given away)
    • Offers in fb groups that you wnat to get notified about
    • Getting invites that gets handed out to users (first come first serve style) to private forums
    • Grabbing review copies quicker than ever ;)

    Alright, since these things are a bit too different from each other and my bot is not THAT flexible yet, I would have to do a FEW fine tunings for each user (which I pretty much can do) that is interested in using my service + I would prolly have to get a few good servers/VPS.

    Would people be interested in this kind of (paid since I have to actually do work for each user + server costs ) service? If so I would get to work, flesh things out and make it public on BHW :)

    I would pay for that!
    The blog commenting function is a big selling point to me.
    Would like to see it in action though

    Sounds Interesting. Like GoogleAlerts and a MacroTool combined. Can you use it on YouTube Videos to comment on X New Videos showing up in a range of X minutes?

    IFTTT-(If This Then That) It's a website. It lets you connect your apps to perform tasks. You should search it and check it out. It's free to use.

    Cool idea sounds like it can be done with combining Google Alerts + IFTTT
