    Hi Guys, I'm in the process of writing a bot for tumblr in C#. I'm looking for a few people to collaborate with. Unfortunately an open source project like this would allow people at Tumblr to adapt to changes and catch on too quickly. The most useful part i have discovered is the .net i-macros component which allows me to use a lot of scripts I have already written. So far I have a working program that logs into tumblr, queues up posts from a .csv file of images, and does a spintax like thing for tags and description. This is a standalone program working through simulated browser clicks (not API). Browser fingerprinting identifies the browser as internet explorer 7.0 - I don't know how well this will fare - does anyone have knowledge of browser fingerprinting practices of tumblr? . To make this truly scalable I am going to need to program it to use proxies. Can anyone recommend tumblr-friendly proxies? I'd be happy to share the source with someone who has proxies to share that are known to work with tumblr. I could easily implement an autofollow/auto-like functionality but I don't think its a good practice in the long run. I'll post my progress on here from time to time. Hopefully there are other people interested in working on this kind of project. I've also tested this implementation and have gotten it working on pinterest. It could be left on (uses very little resources) and can post in the background every 20-100 minutes. A lot of my marketing material is adult and I can't use it on pinterest but I'm currently exploring some niches that might fit there

    For obvious reasons, I am not really willing to collaborate, but am happy to give advise.

    Proxies, go private. Anything else just isn't worth it. With public proxies your accounts face the risk of any spammer who is using them for churning an burning.

    Why not, is a good technique (if used well) As with anything, used badly it isn't :)
