////// CRAIGSLIST BOT SPECS //////
////// OVERVIEW //////
Bot will be coded (Java or C/.NET) to post ads on Craiglist. This bot will serve as an automation tool that once configured and started will automate the task of posting links on Craigslist.
////// REQUIREMENTS //////
Bot will be coded in Java -or- C/.NET to run on a Windows Operating System. Bot will need to absolutely emulate an Internet Explorer browser so something coded using a IE wrapper that can connect to SOCKS5 Proxies w/ Authentication is what we are looking for. Craigslist does some very trick things in regard to detecting bots so extreme accurate browser emulation is absolutely required - No exceptions. We don't want any footprints left when bot is runing/posting ads.
Bot will use SOCKS5 Proxies w/ Username/Password Authentication. Bot will query a remote server (remote server has already been setup by us) to obtain a list of working proxies. Bot will continue to query this remote server every X minutes to ensure bot has a good list of online/working proxies.
Proxy Format Will Be: Proxy,IP,Port,Username,Password,GeoIP-Country,GeoIP-State
Bot will use a proxy from the returned list of Proxy IPs. Included with the Proxy IP will be the State the proxy is geographically located in. Bot will pick a Craigslist city within that state and post the ad.
Bot will integrate with [url removed, login to view] for the translation/decoding of CAPTCHA images. Bot will also be integrated with [url removed, login to view] - [url removed, login to view] will server as a backup captcha service in the event [url removed, login to view] is down/unavailable.
Bot will have the ability to post in Craigslist Jobs and Craigslist Personals - All City/States Required.
////// PLEASE READ //////
We will provide winning bidder exact screenshots of graphical layout, structure, and extremely detailed functionality requirements. We cannot stress enough that the bot MUST emulate an IE Browser session as Craigslist is very tricky on throwing things out there to detect bots. Bot also MUST be able to work with SOCKS5 Proxies WITH username/password authentication. We will provide you the proxies to use.
////// FINALLY //////
We don't want any junk. We want a serious program that works flawlessly and doesn't crash, stall, have memory leaks, and is FULLY TESTED by developer prior to handing us the build (we understand minor bug will possibly occur during initial builds). We are looking for a serious developer to code this bot. We want someone that is experienced and has done this before. PLEASE NO ENTRY LEVEL CODERS.
Candidate should send us a message explaining the following...
1) What language you will use to code the software
2) Your experience level and years of experience in Java or C/.NET
3) Your approach to emulating the browser - be specific please
4) Other projects you have done that are similar to this one
4) Your experience with SOCKS5 Proxies w/ username/password authentication
5) Any other details that you feel are important. Please include any past experience with requirements we are looking for.
