Is there a way I can make a script or program that would continuously vote on a webpage. To vote on the page all you have to do is click the vote button after choosing from a radio box an answer and that's it. I've looked at the source and after you click the vote button all that happens is this line... document.SurveyQuestions9968049.submit(); I just want a way to automate this and send continuously so I didn't have to sit at my computer the whole time. Thanks, this is for a football game on tv so it's not anything malicious by the way.

The easy way out is to determine the HTTP request that corresponds to the posting of the form, and send that request several times. This can be done fairly easily in PERL, VB.NET or C#.

This makes it sound even more malicious. Doesn't the voting system state that you may not vote more than once in a given duration?

It actually says on the site that you can vote as many times as you like... So I didn't think anything about it. Obviously, it isn't exactly fair persay, but it just a football game for my high school and we don't have as many people to vote as the schools that are against us.

Thanks a lot for the help though, I'll dig around and see if I can get it to work.
