Bots are registered users??

#1 Post by books1 » 6 years ago

I logged off just now and it said the following:

"In total there are 3 users online :: 1 registered, 0 hidden and 2 guests (based on users active over the past 5 minutes)
Most users ever online was 36 on Sun Feb 28, 2010 2:18 pm

Registered users: Bing [Bot]
"

- Since when was a "Bot" able to be a registered user? I thought they were pests that trawled the 'Net for addresses and other info.

They wander in to spider the site.

That's a core system coding thing..
I guess the authors thought it was a useful function.
