Registered user - bot???

Unread post by Fine Kettle Of Fish »

So on the front page right now under "Who is Online", and then under "Registered Users", it is currently showing DuckDuckGo(bot) as being online.

I've never seen it show a bot online before, but more to the point - how does it show up as a registered user?

google and bing bots used to show up, I've seen duckduckgo before too.
You can run a script in phpbb to get rid of the bots other than that I think the only way is to require everyone to sign in.

Also, there is a way to see what members are doing while they are online.
Like "browsing kvetch" or "looking at profile" and I've seen guests looking at profile and shit before, which you can only do if logged in, so I assume those were hidden members.
