Massive User Creator v1.0 DONE .NET STYLE

1st of it's kind on vBulletin.org for sharing a .NET source (that I know of) to work with the forums via creating massive users instantly!

Floris was the one that inspired me to release this source so I'm blaming Floris. (This is a joke)

If you don't like this hack then move on, because after reading of the complainers and whiners in his thread it was sad to see the drama queens in action in there saying how unmoral it is and etc... If you don't like it then move on!!! No drama is needed here, I have a 12 year old girl that does enough of that, we don't need no grown men or women dramatizing in this thread.

So no drama please!

Consider this as a learning curve on how .NET works with xmlrpc and the likes!

Unleashing the power of .NET, XMLRPC and just clicking a button = faster way to fill up your forums in no time at all. This is not just for anybody. You will need the following tool under requirements or hire a .NET coder that can do it for you. Because you'll need to enter in the hard coded part of the URL that's needed to be changed in Proxy.vb.

I'm not making this as a version to where you can simply enter the URL to where the script (rpc_users.php) is for liability reasons. I'm giving you sources ONLY!

The rest is up to you, you could donate to the cause of this and I can make a build for your forums personally.

Also, if you are a .NET guru you have the right to expand this project if you like, just credits should be given back and upload here your sources ONLY after I approve of them, so don't go uploading stuff until we approve of it.

Requirements:

Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003 or higher

Instructions:


Simple if you have .NET 2003+

1. Open up the project file. (Massive User Creator.vbproj)

2. Edit Proxy.vb in code view

3. Edit one line below within the quotes "http://www.yourdomain.com/forums/rpc_users.php":

From Proxy.vb source code:

<XmlRpcUrl("http://www.yourdomain.com/forums/rpc_users.php")> _

4. Leave the rest of the code alone unless you know what you are doing.

5. Upload your rpc_users.php tor your forums root after making any necessary changes too such as referrer and such...

6. Build your solution in .NET (Ctrl+Shift+B), you may wanna run a Debug (F5) to test it from there first before you make a bin/

7. Enter in a username | email@emailaddress.com | Click the Generate as the screenshot shows to give a random password.

8. Once done with setting up one click the big o' button Create Users! and if all is correct in your path within Proxy.vb you'll have a new user instantly.

Do note, you will need the matching amount of usernames and email addresses to properly make this work. Meaning you have 50 user names, you will need 50 email addresses, then click generate passwords. Simple enough?
After this, it's endless you can simply create literally thousands of users in a matter of minutes. Where they will actually show up in your member list. I have included 1,000 email addresses that are (fake) so you have that part covered. Just generating usernames is the rest that you'll need. Because built a password generator on there for you already. Easy enough because there are name/word generators in Google for free so go check our friend Google!

I can't see no reason for upgrades due to the fact it's been working since 3.5

Zip Contents:

Also included in the zip folder you will find the following ONLY, no .exe will be included:

rpc_users.php
README.txt
FAKE-EMAILS\ FOLDER
1thousand.txt
EPC MASS FAKE USERS SRC\ FOLDER
AssemblyInfo.vb
carbon_too.ico
CookComputing.XmlRpc.dll
HtmlAgilityPack.dll
Massive User Creator.sln
Massive User Creator.suo
Massive User Creator.vbproj
Massive User Creator.vbproj.user
MassUsers.resx
MassUsers.vb
Proxy.resx
Proxy.vb
RF User Creator.sln
RF User Creator.suo
bin\ FOLDER
CookComputing.XmlRpc.dll
HtmlAgilityPack.dll
obj\ FOLDER
Debug\ FOLDER
temp\ FOLDER
TempPE\ FOLDER
Release\ FOLDER
Temp\ FOLDER
TempPE\ FOLDER
Once again there are NO Executables in this package.

Now, a bit of the PHP file, you can expand this to your likings if you see as follows:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Where you can put more options within here that you would want to use with your forums if you so desire, this is a standard format that we use, so you can expand this later once you get the grips on it.

So enjoy what you have here and happy adding! Click install if you like this.

Disclaimer:

I claim no responsibility and neither does anyone else in your mishaps and etc... If you decide to cripple your forums because of your stupidity actions don't come crying here on vbulletin.org about how you made your board die after opening up 10 instances sending 50 million users to your forums in a matter of seconds. You think we are responsible for you burning your own house down?

Thanks man, it's cool to share with you all here, it's a one of a kind for sure. I searched all throughout here on the .org and can't find no one else doing any work within .NET with shared sources as this.

If you don't have .NET there at all for you deepdog let me know since you are the first install I'll build you a release to do for your forums so you can test it out and give me some feedback. I know it works personally I have done this for over 30+ forums for others already

Since you are my number one installed just send to me via PM your forum URL, your e-mail address I can send it too, and will e-mail to you a release. It's fun watching a forums go from 1 - 10,000 in a matter of 2 minutes even shows up as a legit member on your forums to boot!

Let me know if you need me to. If you have it we'll pass it onto the next person then! As long as they give a bit of feedback.

So, this can be used to make "bot" members? Instead of cheating the statistics, this actually makes users?

Pretty nice i could say, this makes the "Fake Statistics" look like a puppy :P

*Clicks install...*

Now i gotta get .NET and see what's up...

P.S.: blogtorank...in your vB Version field, i see your using 3.8.0? Is that a typo, or have you been selected to test a new vB version?

So this will allow a new forum the ability to add thousands of users to their site, that don't really exist, to make their site look as if it is more active than it really is? You may want to mention to those thinking this is a great feature that if your site says it has 10,000 users and the site only contains 300 threads or posts, your site will not look "great", but rather like you have a ton of users who do not post.

Anyone who uses this feature needs to do so in moderation. It isn't something I would ever use (I wont unleash the drama aspect) but those that do should keep in mind the ratio of posts to users that they have. A site with thousands of users and no activity is worse than an active site with fewer users.

Yes it makes "actual" members on the forums.

Man I'm using v1.0.0 of vBulletin still Just kidding. That's a typo in my "user profile" in regards to 3.8.0, I'm on 3.6.8 I don't know what I was thinking, just only human man! So yeah enjoy this and if you got any questions feel free to ask here in the thread.

Rich,

Yes this will do so, but I stated it's up to them to use and learn with. They can use Floris's hack to fill in the void of missing threads and posts if needed. This is a "standalone" and as I said it's for others to use at will and is FREE as a give-to-the-community.

Just others can use this with any other hack out there, so with Floris's hack you wouldn't have no problem filling that so called "Void" of lacking threads and posts.

Also, Thanks for the "NO-Drama" dude!

I understand they could use the other hack to fill the void. I am referring to actual posts though. The fake stats are just for show. In the actual forums, people get to see what actually exists. If people are looking around a relatively slow site, that displays they have thousands of users and threads/posts, but the forums themselves are fairly empty, it will expose the jig. My suggestion was for those that do use this to keep that in mind.

Try to balance your threads and posts to the stats you display. otherwise, the artificial mods could actually cause your site more harm than good. If people start realizing the numbers aren't "real", they could potentially expose your site on other sites throughout the net. (Especially sites competing with you.)

Don't get carried away is all I am basically suggesting. I can see new admins thinking that adding thousands of users will help their site grow faster. It really wont if the content of the site is lacking.

Another way to help fill their voids is put some RSS feeds for "So called News" into the RSS Feed Manager and let it rip for more content. Hell I even syndicate from Craigslist.org to our advertisers forums. But there is another way to make more "threads and posts" is using Tim's AI bot on here. There's so many ways to fill a void automatically it's crazy .

Anyhow thanks for bringing all this to attention here Rich, greatly appreciated!

There's also a mod out there...I forget the name of it...the guy was advertising it on the vbseo forums...but it will actually take the full content from Yahoo groups and post it on your site. So with that mod, you get a bunch of non-members posting these questions...but if you add it in with this mod, you can definitely make it look like your site is growing rapidly. The only bad thing, that mod I'm talking about costs over 100 bucks I think

The bad things is that if you take things from Yahoo Groups you know that Yahoo will file DMCA faster than you can blink your eye?

With this sort of feedback I may be adding onto this mod now with a bit of a different approach for "posting automation" from the actual users you create with this, and keep it all free .

So here's my thoughts:

1. Create the users with this mod.

2. Save the usernames to a file

3. Input this file into a form on the backend...

Rest of it will come here I'll draw it up later today and see if this will work of my idea and everyone else's, because it's not against the law to pull from feeds, content sources of articles and etc...

I'll get back later on this one and update here what I come up with. Though thanks AzzidReign for a bit more insight on how this can grow even more!

Lovely idea, very imaginative and about time someone branched off into something a little different.

I've never understood the whole drama aspect - a website is private property and people need to come to realise that. It's like my neighbours, who complain It's my property and I'll do as I please.

But alas, this is cool. I may try it, I have 500,000 posts but only 5000 members - in my circumstance I think this could work really well.

Blogtorank no problem, Im ok 4 now...

But I will take a raincheck my friend...

I also work on several or more forums, but my clients dont allow giving out info...

I like YO mod, Floris and there are a few more like this...

Some forums owners want quick results at times so this option works great in this case...

Owners sometimes use that PPP { payperpost } option, in some cases it works, but in most situations it sucks...

Your Mod gives the Admins more control over growing a community without shelling out mega buck-o-laa's...

Keep the ball rolling...
