Project Description

I need somebody to collect a bunch of data from the website [url removed, login to view] for subsequent analysis.

Ideastorm is a crowdsourcing website that collects ideas from users. Those ideas are stored on the ideastorm website. Here's an example: [url removed, login to view]

I have the links of about [url removed, login to view] of such ideas. Now I need data from all of them in a spreadsheet.

What I need for each of them is:

-Link

-Title of Idea

-Status

-Date

-Posted by

-Description (full text)

-Category

-Number of votes

-Number of comments

-And all the comments with:

---Posting Date

---Description

---Posted by

All of this should be in an Excel file for further analysis. You will need a webscraping tool like [url removed, login to view] or the like.

Please also write a brief report about how you got the data.
