Import data as threads to forum from txt-file/csv

How can I Import data as threads/ posts to my vbulleting 3.8.3 forum from txt-file/csv ?

I have a list of topics created with titles and descriptions but I find it cumbersome to have to manually do data entry.

I want discussions on those topics and want to automate posting to the site. It can be from a single userid too.

here is what I hope:
1.) I would manually put in a set of users (takes a few minutes for that few)
2.) I manually put the text files into a .csv file or the equivalent. I assume it would be something like columns of:Forum ID, Thread ID, User ID, Date, Post (or whatever, just guessing)
3.) Then I would import the file, rebuild the threads,

Any help on achieving this would be much appreciated

I see no one has answered you yet, perhaps you need to pay someone to do this for you. That can be done by posting in the Requests for Paid Services forum. Make sure you read the stickies in the forum before hiring anyone.

I had completely forgotten about this thread.

I have used imacros firefox addon to achieve automation for some part of it. As of now, I can create threads from a single user with csv data, however it creates one thread every 60 seconds and is not imported in database but automates the normal process of posting a thread.

If someone wants to learn this, feel free to PM and I shall help you.
