I thought you guys might get a use out of this, it basically logs into a plenty of fish account and scrapes ads and landing pages (if you choose so). It's still in beta so I'd appreciate some feedback on it:

POF SPY- Plenty Of Fish Ad Scraper uGet Links

This program uses internet explorer 8.0 and microsoft.net 3.5 so make sure you have both of those installed.



Images are exported in blocks of 3 and are numerically named:



Landing pages are exported to a .csv file called urls.csv



The 0's are just to keep formatting simple and clean, they don't represent anything. Proxies should only be used if you're behind a firewall and need to use it.

If you guys have any bugs or feature requests let me know

    Thank you!

    I'm not working with POF now, but downloaded the software anyway (it can be useful in the future).

    pretty cool of you to share that.... are you able to login under any account but then specify the age/demo of the ads you want to view, versus the ones your account is tied to?

        It's called cpa traffic dojo or something like that, but I wouldn't recommend it since it costs $400+. Signup at http://ads.pof.com and their support staff will help you with any questions you have.

        No POF shows ads based on the details in your account so it just pulls whatever ads are shown to your account.

      Hi P2y, I just downloaded your POF software. Will this only run on IE 8 and above? Will it run on Firefox or Chrome?

      I looked at some of the other cool software you have on your site. Some of the tech stuff is way over my head. Can you describe more in layman's terms what your other paid and free software can do for me / us? Perhaps you could create a WSO around some of your software.

      Thanks for the POF share.

        It's 100% clean, it's made with ubot so if you're worried you can check with Seth or Lord Brar. If you want I can send you the .ubot file so you can see the code and compile it yourself in ubot studio.

        It will only work with internet explorer 7.0/8.0, ie doesn't need to be open or running it just needs to be installed on the system. As for the other software I can't offer those in the wso section due to changes in "rule 7" but if you have any questions about anything feel free to shoot me an email.

      Theres no such thing as "Deprogrammed" it. You could have said Decompiled but then that kind of thing is very Hit and Miss. The only thing you could do is use it in a Virtual machine to protect your own machine and run something like Wireshark to see where the traffic is going to.

      That looks like a .net error, are you sure you have microsoft.net 3.5 installed?

      In the accounts just put your account details, 1 per line:

      Code:
      account1:password
      account2:password
      account3:password
      etc...

      Then set your ad scraping options, hit play, and watch it go to work

    put your email you used to sign up at ubot into the license file you find in the folder with the bot. It seems to look there when it starts up.

    Thanks for the share - saved me a lot of time.

    I ran the program and got the snapshots of the ads, but no csv file. Any idea of why not or where to look for it if it is not in the same folder as the images?

          No it doesn't have a trojan in it, kaspersky falsly flags anything by ubot as malware but it's a false positive.

          Make sure you have microsoft.net 3.5 installed.

          It doesn't have a trojan, it's a false positive that anything made by ubot carries in kaspersky.

          It should be instant, make sure you don't have another program such as notepad reading license.txt or that can cause problems.

    Here's how I made it work, (at least to get snap shots of the ads but not the links to the landing pages - It does not seem to produce a csv file for me.)

    Start the program - when you try to run it you need to register with ubot or whoever it is with an email address. I think you need to confirm it, but don't remember.
    once that's done open the license.txt file and replace the text in there with your email. All it should have is one line with the email address you used to register.

    Then create another file - users.txt and put in there your usernames/password like this

    username1: pw1
    username2: pw2
    etc.

    (remove the space after the colon - the editor is giving me smilies.)

    if you want to use a proxy create another file called proxy.txt
    add
    proxyip : port
    proxyip2 : port
    etc.
    (remove the space after the colon - the editor is giving me smilies.)

    I don't know if it rotates proxies or not.

    browse to your accounts file add that.
    browse to your proxy file add that.

    click on proxy on or proxy off.

    select no for scrape landing page

    add something like 10 to #number of ads to scrape
    add a delay of 10 or 15

    then click on the arrow next to the action button

    it should then start getting images of the ads on Pof
