Default So many guests on forum.

I had about at the most 127 guests. Here is a screenshot just right now.



Is someone trying to hack the forums? Or are they all bots? They keep comin' back?

Default Re: So many guests on forum.

they ones in ur list are most likely bots.
But I don't think that there are usually that many bots, just ppl who want to learn from our intelligent posts
I checked the who's online thingy, and it doesn't seem like they would be bots, since they are viewing different threads etc. But they still could be.
One weird thing though, why is there a Google Spider? Is it a bot?
And no, it's not a user since if it would be u could click it's name to see the profile.

And mr F, how can u see their ip?
btw, currently 133 guests.

I was on a forum once and the gues actually said "google" Does that mean that wasn't a bot but an actually person? Or does that mean that this isn't a google bot?
