I recently inherited two FTP servers; both systems run Filezilla Server. One has a small user-base so creating users is a small task. The other is huge and needs to have 300+ users created. I estimate that several hundred users may be added yearly so, manually creating accounts would be a bit of a pain.

Are there any options on scripting user account creation?
