Ultimate Forum/Forum Master?
I was wondering if there was a site which uses web scrapping techniques to access other forums such so that users can benefit from a central forum and post to mulitple forums and query multiple forums
Well you can't post to multiple forums, unfortunately. You can search multiple forums, in a very primitive fashion, by using boardreader - http://www.boardreader.com/ - it only covers some forums, and you can't do very sophisticated searches with it. I would love for a Usenet search engine like that for Google Groups ( http://groups.google.com/ ) to come to web forums, but it simply isn't available yet.
I think most forums would block a service that allowed you to post to multiple forums. It sort of defys the purpose of a forum.
No, but there is software that will spam multiple PHPbb forums for you, I've seen it. This sounds like what you want.
Some forums now have RSS feeds.
Yes, I would think a newsgroup would be what you wanted.
http://gmane.org - all the public mailing lists you could ask for; And while the web interface is nice, it really shines on the nntp front.
Why does the idea of posting to multiple forums sound like spam to me?
Write the software yourself & get RICH RICH RICH......
You know, the idea is good in theory.
