i am in a popular band and have found that replying to all of our friends on our bands myspace page is quit tedious... i believe strongly that a band should write a response to every fan mail they get, but with our growing popularity we have little time to do this. we need a small program coded similar to a form autofiller so that we will be able to click a one button in the program to insert text that we choose into 2 fields(subject, and body) of the [url removed, login to view] message window(this would only be sent to 'subscibed' users on our myspace friends list) *see the step by step instructions in the 'deliverables' section to understand exactly what the program will need to do.
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.
2) Deliverables must be in ready-to-run condition, as follows (depending on the nature of the deliverables):
a) For web sites or other server-side deliverables intended to only ever exist in one place in the Buyer's environment--Deliverables must be installed by the Seller in ready-to-run condition in the Buyer's environment.
b) For all others including desktop software or software the buyer intends to distribute: A software installation package that will install the software in ready-to-run condition on the platform(s) specified in this bid request.
3) All deliverables will be considered "work made for hire" under U.S. Copyright law. Buyer will receive exclusive and complete copyrights to all work purchased. (No GPL, GNU, 3rd party components, etc. unless all copyright ramifications are explained AND AGREED TO by the buyer on the site per the coder's Seller Legal Agreement).
3) Along with this program there would need to be support from the scripter to make sure it is fully functional for up to 6 months after the purchase date of the script. if minor tweaking to the script is needed to ensure functionallity, it will be done free of charge by the scripter. 4) ----------------------------------------------------- *To better understand EXACTLY what we need, please follow these instructions to get to the point where the PROGRAM you make will start doing its job. You will need to open a new account on myspace so that you can login their yourself and see what Im talking about! The following steps will be done manually by us BEFORE we run the program(follow along with them so you will land at the screen you will need to make the program for): 1. Login to myspace. [url removed, login to view] using your login ID and password. 2. Click VIEW MY PROFILE that is to the right of your profile photo 3. Click on SEARCH that is in the RED music toolbar. 4. Fill in manually the zip code and miles within fields... 20 miles and 98406 5. Click UPDATE 6. Click on PAGE 2 of the search. Everything to THIS point is done MANUALLY... ****NOW THE PROGRAM WILL COME INTO PLAY***** THIS PROGRAM MUST RUN WITH MOZILLA FIREFOX BROWSER!!!!!!!!!!!! PROGRAM FUNCTIONS: 1. copy and paste the url that is displayed at this moment(after clicking on page 2 of the search) 2. The number at the end is what page of the search you are on. 3. We need to be able to copy that URL into a Field of the program you create and then tell it how many pages past that we want to be processed through the program. 3b. At this point we will also type into the program the text we want it to AUTO FILL into the SUBJECT: and BODY: portions of the message window in step 4 4. So, for example, if we were starting on page 3 we would copy in the URL that ends with "3." Then by enterting 20 pages as the number of pages we want processed, the program would stop on the same URL ending in "23." 5. On each search page, the program will do the following: 1. open up EACH of the band's profile links (which is their profile picture) and open it in a new TAB (not a new window) a new TAB(in firefox) within the already open and active window. 2. On each bands profile page that is one of the 10 newly opened TABS, the program will select the SEND MESSAGE button that is located below their picture. 3. Once the send message button is selected for a profile it takes you to the MESSAGE page for that band. 4. On the message page the program will auto fill what we typed into the SUBJECT field of the program, into the SUBJECT: field of the myspace window. and what we typed into the BODY field or the program, into the BODY: Field of the myspace window. 5. Now the program will hit the SEND button, to send the message that was automaticly filled in. 6. The program will do this for EACH band profile link that has its own TAB. There are 10 band profiles per search page. 7. Once the program has messaged all 10 bands on the search page it will CLOSE the entire window (including the 10 extra TABs), OPEN another FIREFOX window and paste the URL from step 1 into it but add "1" to the number at the end of the URL. SO if it ended on 9, the next page the program does would be 10... etc. 8. The PROGRAM MUST make sure it pauses for 14 seconds after messaging ONE band before going on to the next one. This is so the computer has TIME to send the message fully. I have a slow internet connection and sometimes my computer spazzes out. Doing this manually I found I need 10-12 seconds at least till I can go onto another band. along with this program there would need to be support from the scripter to make sure it is fully functional for up to 6 months after the purchase date of the script. if minor tweaking to the script is needed to ensure functionallity, it will be done free of charge by the scripter. thanks it, thanks for looking, and let us know your bid! and how soon you can have it done by(we want it asap)
needs to function in Windows XP, windows 9x, and Mozilla Firefox
