Wait, what? Why is your page PHP and this in the VB.NET section? Basically you would query your database and have the results displayed on the screen... that is unless there is something else going on that is not explained.

... but being this looks like an annoyingly skinned vbulletin forum all this information should be provided in their profile page!

Edit: Side note - that overlay about needing to register is in the top three of the most obnoxious things I have seen today.

Probably because your site is done in PHP.

I understand, you're looking to do web scraping from a VB.NET app.

Moved back to VB.NET, but this really qualifies as a "gimme the codes" post. If you examine the first sentence in my post, you'll get some key phrases to plug into your favorite search engine.

You need to work on explaining things - especially when mysterious desktop applications jump in four or five posts down.

You need to build a webservice to host on your...er... web host that, when queried, grabs data from the database backing your vbulletin forum.

Here's a link to a tutorial that may get you pushed in the right direction..

No one has any idea:
- what platform you are using
- what you want for a desired outcome
- or any answers to the myriad of questions above.
