User-verification, Scams, Paysites.

Posted by compactwater on August23 2007

Paysites, what are they? A place where ‘professional’ programmers sell cheats for games, usually stolen. The reason sites like those exist is because most people don’t learn. They don’t learn how to do something on their own, and so they look for others to do it for them, with no results. Then they come across a Paysite, and buy something. And what’d’ya know? It works! But the thing is, they didn’t make it, they didn’t learn anything from it, and they wasted money for something that was already fully ‘public’ and possibly even open-source.
Why DO people pay others to do work for them? Because they are lazy.

Something I’ve noticed about some sites which offer bots, hacks, and etc for Neopets is a user-verification system. It is to make sure you’re a member of the site, and with that, they can be sure only users from their site can access the programs. Something I didn’t notice, is they actually force you to put the verification in the program YOU have created, and by doing so, you submit your program to their site, as their property. It means you aren’t the creator anymore. You should never modify your source, just to fit the needs of a community.

A good example of this is Neocodex, which was originally created by raredaredevil. History on it is fuzzy, but the administrators of Neocodex used their programs to attract users and steal accounts, even though the programs are fully functional, so no-one suspected it.

Quote from raredaredevil himself:

I was the creator of Neocodex, hydrogen just had a free promo host with godaddy. We met on a msn group. I needed a host, he needed a programmer.

They started to hack there own members, so I released that info to the public and got banned from a site I made.

Since I released info about them hacking there own members, I have been disliked by many of course they denied the entire thing and said all screenshots made were faked by me. Then about a year later they admitted it, by then no one cared and I kept the label of a bad person who tried to take the site down.

Back then I was like 14-16 years old (not sure exactly) I have no reason to join a forum anymore , I will soon make (need a msql database) and then I will shift every single program full public, full open source. Having to join a forum and release your programs to climb ranks makes no sense, the admin of a site should be glad to have you and your programs not the other way round.
