Re: Auto Voting

The following site has some useful resources:

Lynx links

As it is proxy bot voting is indeed trivial. The client only needs to get the input right, in this case to go to the voting page, move the cursor down, and send an enter.

Re: Auto Voting

I don't think you could make it any more trivial for a bot to vote as it stands right now.

It's not too hard to stop most bots (captchas, even JavaScript), but there would be a trade off with screen readers and text-based browsers like Lynx.

Actually some bots can read captchas. The method isn't 100% safe from bots. However those bots I have seen are usually made to post forum ads, and the question becomes if some MUD admin/user would want to do the work to make a bot that does that for TMS voting.
