I built the Brute Force Password Cracker as a fun program to test out passwords, and to test my knowledge of Python 3 and its libraries.
Hello, im typing this here just because its the highest one and maybe some of the creators of repl can see. How would this be legit? I mean anyone or someone with experience can make a selenium / pyautogui bot to just create an account and go the "I built this" page and click on their repl. Maybe they put it in a for loop and it keeps on running the loop to create a new account and hit the upvote and so on. Just wondering because it is possible, and it is quite easy. Just a heads up. Cheers !

Im not talking bad about you Cyan im talking about how it is possible that people may do this bot. Your program is amazing. Happy coding!
@molinitomario: Just so you know, this would probably be better in an email to [email protected] Also, one way to see if a user is probably fake/a bot is if you go to their account (repl.it/@username) and check if they have any programs. This being because almost all users have at least a program or two.
@microwither: yeah, tbh anything is possible. Or you can make it go to the new repl and using pyper clip paste in code or use hotkey('ctrl', 'v'). Although, if they do that then they are scumbags. @quadeg1 finally someone agrees with me, hahaha..... ._. it is not a good idea to tell this in the public comments because someone may get some ideas...
It just so happens to be with basic post upvoting system; the ones that got the largest amount of upvotes initially tend to do well because people will come on here to just check things out and they tend to just click on the first few before peacing out. This means that the ones that get submitted later on are harder to get exposure unless the owner promotes it themselves on twitter or something.
