You've asked for advice on the best way to do this and some of the most prominent members have said "DON'T DO IT". Simply put, what more advice do you need? No one thinks its a good idea.
    lol because I'm a programmer, and I like to challenge myself. Is that not a good enough reason?

    I never asked if anyone thought it was a good idea, I just asked how to do it. Thanks for the advice though.

    Every room backend is different, so u need s different parser for each room. U need ability to capture players usernames on signup and ensure they are registered and tracked correctly. Need to make sure bonuses are treated correctly, if paid out by the room, is it deducted from rake owed. Also how will you pay players, rake back on demand, or rooms pay them? Need to have audit flags in place, in case a parser stops working or figures out if your figures are not matching the backend.some rooms you'll get daily csv/xls file to parse, whereas some with have XML feed and some will simply show stats in backend. But then those showing stats in a backend might be coded in p v aspx so need different parser to do them as well

    Best of luck

    Thanks for the information, and it doesn't sound like it'll be that hard to code once I get the CSV or XML feeds. I'm hoping that I'll be able to automate the process though, so I won't have to manually upload the feeds daily to my site.

    Looks like it didn't work out. The forum in question appears to be for sale and/or redirecting to other small pages full of links to other websites and very little content.
