    I have a site which lists men.

    I need to populate it with decent looking men.

    Ideally I need 12 profiles for each area of the country and in each age group. Less perhaps,.

    Any ideas would be welcome.

    Bear in mind each profile needs to have its own email account.

    Options

    1. Purchase email accounts from somewhere
    2. Find a place to find pics that dont look like models.
    3. Load them on to the site

    Ideas? Can you help?

    Creative?

    Yeap.. outsource it.. find someone for example on getafreelancer.com .. you will pay cents for it :) and they will do everything...

    If you dont have money.. buy gmails acc.. but rather find someone on any freelancer site..not here.. its cheaper..

    Find any site with male photos.. if you cant find any free photos ( not some porn stars photos :) ) just use twitter or myspace etc.. write any name.. like tomas..john.. and you will get enough images..

    EDIT: my mistake.. didn't saw this is in the marketplace forum... oh well.. hope i did help a little :>

    Yeh not as easy as that, but appreciate your kind words. I might try that.

    The issues are

    1/ The profiles are public so using someone elses photo and they find out is a high risk

    2/ Each person needs to automatically create the profile manually with an email address.

    But yes, might be worth a try. I did post on RAC and Elance but I think this needs an expert, ie someone from this site that might have a key.

    get the profiles from a dating site in a different country/continent... minimize risk of being found by the originator, or drop $30 on istockphoto

    do you own the site if so its probably database driven... create a sql dump file so it populates the profiles

    incidentally what script are you using?

    its asp.net the expensive and annoying one...

    Could look at dump.

    And yes could look at other countries.. interesting...

    $30 on istock buys you nothing much these days and their shots are good. I use morguefile for free licence free shots of people who look more ugly!!! Ie more realistic.. but I need probably a lot more than 30 pics, istock normally are a dollar a pop. And morguefile as the name suggests doesnt have that many pics available.

    If I wanted to be naughty there are some tricks but i need to sail as close to white as my hat will allow.

    Not sure what a dump file is... crumbs might be beyond my coders talent.

    I need a similar service to what Debbie is looking for, in my case to scale-up a client's new social site and make it appear that an online outreach campaign my partner and I are running for the client is really taking off. Like the OP, I also need to have no fingerprints and total deniability in case of exposure. FYI, there will be a real on-line campaign and real users will be joining-up too - we just want to pad the rolls and provide some insurance for ourselves because this is our first gig to (hopefully) launch ourselves. In other words, if this doesn't work or blows-up in our face, we're screwed! But no risk - no reward, right? On the other hand, cost is an issue for us, because there's a limit to what might spend and to what this would be worth to us.

    Obviously I'll want to start slow and test services- so let's start with like 50 profiles. Profiles' Names, photos, IP's, Geo's, even timing of posts and log-ins based on supposed Geo of user profile all need to make sense: ie, I can't have someone whose profile says they're a 29 y/o married mom from Des Moines Iowa USA posting at what would be like 3:30am Iowa time, from an India based IP. I can only use profiles that are verifiable, best is with tracks to profiles on existing other social sites like FB or MS so the profiles look real if someone were to cross check against other sites. If everthing works-out, I'd like to scale-up to 1,000 or so "real" fake profiles (but if there's a limit to how many can be created and managed, please just say so).

    We're going to be running some sponsored giveaways and contests based on user ratings and votes, so we need to be able to deploy the profiles as necessary to make sure "the right user" wins. Actually I'd also like to be use these profiles on other sites that are giving away cash and prizes to make sure "the right user" wins those too :D. Andwhere cash and prizes are involved, fingerprints MUST be invisible.

    If this isn't possible, please just say so. Even better and more helpful would be to post what would be possible, or how close to the ideal we could get.

    Please post your replies here so that all can see/ critique them. With all due respect, I will ignore any PM's from anybody trying to sell me services that has not first posted their proposal here. I may be new to this site, but I'm not new to the the planet :smoker:.

    If your proposal makes sense to me and to any others more knowlegeable than me who might be willing to give a newbie an opinion, then I'll for sure be in touch - basically save your energy: don't PM me, I'll PM you.

    I hope I can work this out and will definitely post any results/outcomes for others to see and learn. Thanx in advance,

    T-Bag

    I can get sign ups from guys all over the country and they will all do it on their own will.. the accounts will come from my cl campaigns with targetted adult traffic =) If you want it i can also target the traffic a little more like age groups or social groups (18-25 only please or military as examples)

    How would you pay though?

    Payment, if you live in the UK is no problem. I can do cheque, "so I know where you live :)" or Paypal or BACS what ever you like.

    I did think about targeting men with the cock in hand so to speak, but I do need them to be relatively cool and or fit.

    TEABAG, love you. But create your own job in the forum.

    PRODIGE< sounds interesting but with the greatest love in the world, I do have to be careful just because as you have not earned any kudos in this forum, a regular user of the forum stands to loose his place here should he rip anyone off. Just so you know, but you make an interesting point.

    Don't think I would take a risk working for you ;)? Pay per sign up and pay per paypal and then we both shouldn't have a security problem

    ha!

    Let me have your proposal in terms of per registered and published lead, and for sure, I can risk throwing some money at you for a very small number of registered profiles, yeh say 30 - 50

    for your information

    I have 21+ , 31+ , 41+, 50+, 60+ age groups and non of these will be paying clients, I need to get free ones on there first.

    You might want to recommend that I change something in the sign up process or if there is a way we can add weight to your proposal to help the user know why they might click and what they might get in return rather than sending them just to the site and hoping for the best.

    Something like:

    "but if you want x y z and dont want to xyz for it, get listed on xyz"

    As far as your end is concerned you could opt to have an advance, or a full payment so you know I will not skip paying for any results.


    Feel free to PM me if you dont want to talk nitty gritty in public.

    PS if it works, small we can decide to up the anti, who knows how far we can take it. Trying all kinds of things, the last thing I want to do is fake up profiles unless its absolutely neccessary.

    Using the twitter tool posted here, which I highly recommend but bounce rate is laughable, also payed for a myspace and facebook campaign which was a complete waste of space.

    So do good looking blokes, look at adult content, sure, but what percentage remains to be seen...

    Sorry, Deb, wasn't trying to hijack or poach I was just trying to leverage resources since we were looking for similar services. I'll get outta your way. But you know, now that you have declared your feelings for me... I can't hold it in any more either: I love Deb too, and I don't care who knows it! There I said it :p See ya round campus kids, please do let me know if it works out for you and espcially if it doesn't

I'll let you know if I get anything that sounds interesting. I'm gonna PM you on a related question maybe you can advise if you'd be so kind. Cioa for now.
