Mass Producing Posts? [Nov. 3rd, 2002|04:51 pm]
LiveJournal Client Discussions


[mood |curiouscurious]

Ignore that title, it just conveys a mental image I had of robots writing LJ posts based on their owners calendars. My real question is this:

Is it alright to attempt something like blog bitch with an LJ? I scanned the TOS and FAQs but couldn't find anything in regards to this. I'm not looking to do anything more than one post per day. So, anywhen, I just wanted to post here really quick and ask before I did anything -- "here" because, I figure it will be a kind of client.

Not bad, but it needs some work. It's mostly giving a jumble.

They link to dadadodo just as I did, which implies we're using the same code underneath. It mostly depends on how much data you provide: while they're using multiple blogs, mine only uses the lastn view of your journal.

What I have in mind, actually, is the opposite of your link. What I want to do is setup a database on my server with a lot of quotes, a script that runs once a day to post a randomized message, and then have the message show up at an LJ of mine.

Interesting concept. I can't see any reason why you shouldn't be allowed to do it - I certainly can't find anything in the documentation to say you can't. As long as you're not hammering the servers (and from what you said you wouldn't be), I don't see that there's anything to stop you.
