I see Tharbooka Gobaka is selling such an automated program that automaticly hits the banners to get CPs. But actualy doesnt vote because you need to click a button once you open the top sites.
I think it's cheating. And taking 150k for this thing is cheating too.
Is the use of automated programs legal?
Cause if it is then why play the game when you can use a script that flyes your ship while you are gone!

First, in response to Jaret Byar, you are incorrect in stating that it does not vote on the topsites. It does. How do I know? Well I programmed it myself, for one. To place a vote all that is needed is to visit a certain url and submit some postdata. All of which is done behind the scenes. Only about half the topsites actually let you know if you have double voted, but the ones that do inform you of double votes report that you have already voted after running the program.
Second, Teniel Djo is correct. I went to the admins with this before releasing it to the public. It took nearly a month from my first attempt to contact them, but eventually got the greenlight from the admins. Had the admins shot it down, I would never have released it to the public.
If you do not wish to use it, then don't. No one is forcing you to. I made it for myself because I know I frequently forget to go get my CPs; and I thought other people might like it as well.
P.S. I would never release anything that automatically flys your ships around for XP. That is cheating in my eyes too.

Hey, if its cleared with admin, then its fine with me. Bear in mind though, that scripts which click banners for cash are actually illegal: don't know how that works for something like this (because of course the combine is paid per click I assume) but I guess if admin are happy, then they've presumably cleared it with the sponsors.
I'm glad you aren't planning to release any "ship flying" scripts.
