    Poll: Would you pay for someone to check if your yahoos were available?

    Just curious. Still need to get home to make sure my availability testing method works, then getting it pushed into a program if the method still does work (This would be for BULK CHECKING, as it would not be restricted by the amount of checks per hour.

    This of course would be a service to bulk check yahoo e-mails if they're unregistered. Would you pay for a service like this and how much would you be willing to pay o:

    Thanks for any feedback!

    There's a program for that here:

    So I probably wouldn't pay for it at all :/

    Doesn't work on yahoos to my knowledge o-O

    Thanks for the input. To further clarify, proxies do not work on yahoo, nor does checking availability too many times as your IP gets locked out after about 40 attempts. Could be wrong though =_=

    Well the screenies are of using it with yahoos. So...not sure. I've checked yahoos on it before, but it's always been a mixed bag that I check (hotmails, msns, yahoos, etc).

    That program checks if the email is connected to a neopets account. He is talking about checking if the email is unregistered so you can create it and get the accounts and passwords for neopets.

    Ohhh ok. That's what I was thinking the program was doing.
    Hmmmm I might would pay for that. But as it only takes about 10-15 seconds to do it manually it probably wouldn't be very much.
    I think you'd do best maybe doing it like 5 cents an email? Or is that too little?

    Yes this is what I meant, thank you! As I don't download any programs I wasn't sure if this was actually already on the forum

    For just checking if it's unregisterred it definately wouldn't be too little. 5 cents per check would actually sound kind of expensive to me. I would probably run it 1 cent per e-mail checked as well as maybe a modest extra charge for each unregisterred available, such as perhaps 5-10 cents for each e-mail actually unregisterred.

    Just trying to get some input on it

    Updated. Figured out what Zach meant. To clarify the difference, this method would not have a cap to amount of yahoo e-mails that could be checked per hour.
