    I have had scrapeboard for a few days now, and I have been making a fair bit of progress with it. I am reading a lot of stories about people being unhappy with it, and most of them are fair complaints too. Despite this I really want this software to be awesome, so I am persevering, and starting to see some good results.

    My Biggest complaints:

    I love the cloud Text questing solving idea, where answers of those silly text questions are saved on SB servers, and solved automatically when others try and create account on that specific forum....however, so far this simply isn't working. I am answering the same questions over and over...so clearly it's not learning anything.

    My other complaint is at the moment it's got a bug where is hums along only using 3% of my CPU, then all of a sudden goes mental, and shots to 100% and crashes...that needs fixing.

    Improved captcha solving would be good, and save me a heap with my decaptcha....but I am realistic with my expectations on this.

    Tips for others:

    I am getting 100's of profiles with this software now - the crashing issue mentioned above being the only thing stopping me from getting 1000's ...I struggled at first...heres whats working now:

    I don't have private proxies...I am using the free ones....but I only use them for harvesting to avoid getting SE bans. I turn off the proxies for posting...working much better.

    I am harvesting fresh lists using large generic keyword lists.

    Using cpanel email from own domains helps a lot - signups don't end up in spam folder, and you can download all the messages via pop3 unlike with gmail.

    Feature idea:

    This probably wouldn't work as the type of users SB likely has would kill it...but AMR uses user submitted directories to add to the public list of possible sites to post to....using a similar theory SB could record sites that have had successful profiles created onto them to central DB, and allow uses to down this list...so rather than everyone hammering all forums, just the vunerable ones would get hammered - and everyone would get higher success rate.... could work?

    Just a few thoughts on this software and my progress with it anyway....I really want it to be awesome, and I think it's very close to being damn useful anyway.

    I am also hoping on this software to be awesome... but for 100 bucks I'm not touching it right now, atleast untill it is in proper working order like SB :). I will certainly buy this software in a heart beat, but when the times right. My biggest thing would be if they could get the auto captha solving to work great

    Those complaints are mostly from SB newbies. They do everything wrong right from the scratch and don't spend time reading FAQ or user guide.



    Regarding your complaints - Did you contact SB support?



    SB is not a forum poster. You can only harvest forums. Even in that case, maintaining central DB is a bad idea. Everyday thousand of SB users download the list and use the same for blast which really makes the list useless.

    EDIT: I thought its about Scrapebox lol...Sorry for that..See IMO Scrapeboard is NOT a fully functioning software as of now. I will buy ONLY after I see a official sales thread here by SF.

    Posted/Created Profile is what I meant....I agree about it getting thrashed....which is why I suggested it probably wouldn't work....just thought I would put it out there as an idea though.

    I have contacted support.

    I've been experiencing the same cpu usage problem while creating forum accounts. Unfortunately I can't get something like an error log since the (in the FAQ) promised error zip file doesn't show up in my SB folder.

    There are rare times when I am able to create accounts on 1000+ boards but most of the time this error occurs after one or two hundred attempts.

    Maybe it's a bug like a broken capture (I know this has been fixed)...

    Please turn off the internal OCR. It can cause the 100 CPU.
    The OCR will be replaced with a non-ocr and much faster solution, the ScrapeBoard team is currently working on that.

    About the cloud db: The answer to a question will only be submitted when the forum account could be created, which would be an indication that the answer was correct.
    If you create a forum account by answering a question, and you will have to answer the same question again, then your access to the cloud database might get blocked by a firewall (just an idea...).

    If it's possible, please email the list you are using to support.
    Additionally, please add the scrapeboard.sil, which you can find in the Configuration folder, it contains debug settings to help support localizing the issue.

    You have indeed responded...sorry for suggesting otherwise. The most recent update seems to have made things much better. I did a run last night, and it still did the 100% bug, but after 6000urls, rather than 300...so much more workable.

    IamTURK, most forums that have text captcha don't just have one question and one answer, they can have dozens of questions and answers. If you save all the successful ones, and run them again you will get different questions that the cloud may not know yet. Likewise if you save the failed text captcha and run them again, you may get questions it knows and they will be successful. The cloud is growing fairly quickly, and this sort of thing will become less as it learns.

    No problems, my ISP is currently having major issues and i can't even use scrapebox/scrapeboard so far today but when it comes good i will do some large scale tests and see what could be the cause.
