Now , I've read all forum threads about this and followed all their advice but still don't have an answer to it. There must be something missing I can find out here. Here's the problem: I have a good list of freshly scraped SMF forums, all clean and at the index page. I make all settings as recommended by tutorials I have read. But I only get 4% success rate for profiles. Yes, Four percent. At this point I'm figuring, I must be doing something wrong, as I expected at least 10% with Xrumer. Then, the most weird thing, I enabled self learning mode and used kensai's XAS_AI which a lot of people have said is very good. Now my success rate has DROPPED to just 2%!! I was expecting a big boost with that file! I get a lot registered e.g. 'captcha recognized;registering only mode ON' but very few profiles. I also get very few activation needed forums when I know the vast majority of forums need activation, so maybe do I need a new xmessages.txt? Most of them go to the 'Part Successful' which is really frustrating. What kind of success rates do you guys experience and how can I improve mine?
