    How do I update my blacklist? Also, when I'm scraping with hrefer the updating proxy database button is stuck on "starting". im using the proxy sources that were in the proxyc folder to begin with. If I shouldn't be, where can I find more sources? Last thing, Im getting alot of "no post sending forms found" after im done posting. but my self-learning control settings doesnt really have anything I can teach it to fill in the blanks, I selected "all unknown fields.". Do I need a different xas file or is it something to do with the sites themselves?

    EDIT: Now im getting no pages or links when I'm scraping with hrefer? what is wrong with my proxies?

    Why don't you ask your question on botmaster's forum?
    Xrumer support is really good.

    Well Ive solved most of these problems except for "no post sending forms found" and when I scrape with hrefer most keyword searches are 0/0 and I'm only getting around 1300 links total. 99% of which get the post forms error. I know with my current keywords I should be getting more links.

    most likely your additive words/sieve filter isn't setup right. Look at the site that says "no post sending forms are found" and see if it is actually a forum/blog. 1,300 links is way too few, you need around half a million to get a good amount of success in xrumer.

    Whats a common ratio for "successful" to "the rest" with half a million links?

    it depends on if you're using private proxies or a bulletproof server - it will jump the success rate up a bit if you're running bulletproof. VPNs/Public proxies or even private proxies will lower success rates. It also depends on your XAS_AI and if you have it setup right for the right forum you're harvesting in hrefer. Your textcaptcha file also can change success rates.

    Number of threads, periodicity can also raise/lower success rates.

    you also probably want to separate the activation required forums from the ones that don't need it. Success rates can be between 0.5% - 5%. Higher is possible but not all that common on a raw list.

    Once you filter a raw list you can get 50 - 70% success rate.
