    List them here, or PM me.

    I'll then see if I can do it.

    If you want to automate a blog / forum platform Xrumer will not be beaten. It's just too freaking fast and powerful. Once you learn to mod Xrumer you can basically do whatever you want.

    The ONLY exception here, and one which you should look to focus on IMHO to fill the gaping hole left by Xrumer, is platforms which use javascript to post, because Xrumer can't handle it. For example, with scrapebox using an internal java browser it can handle Blogengine, which uses javascript in the posting process, while Xrumer despite all its power cannot. There is a surprising amount of these platforms which Xrumer simply cannot do, for example most Joomla commenting platforms are beyond Xrumer's capabilities, as well as many Korean blog platforms, some of them quite large in fact.


    With your project I don't see how you can find a market opening because Xrumer has got it covered. What you seem to be doing is a kind of sick submitter with templates pre-installed? (Correct me if I'm wrong). I would personally look into all platforms which Xrumer cannot (despite appropriate modifications, because people are modding despite very little being talked about it) post to and make your product based on that. Then it would be very useful to me. But, then again, I could just modify Sick Submitter to post on the platforms I can't get Xrumer to post on, it's pretty easy to do that, but to be honest Sick Submitter takes up too much resources and it really sucks!

    I have got Joomla automated.

    Thing is, Xrumer is really expensive, and modding for a new platform takes a lot of time and effort.

    I have a much, much easier way.

    However, there is a speed cost.

    So:

    Joomla - already automated.
    Blogengine - already automated.


    Any more?
