No, some of us aren't bots, so I estimate at about 10000.

So we have about 10000 bots here? No wonder UBB is eating itself.

We still have bots?

I thought SpidWeb would be doing better now, not worse. =P

Unfortunately, the number of bots has been increasing at a near exponential rate. Hopefully someone will place prevention measures to keep the bots out. However, most of the bots never post.

Erm, does SpidWeb have one of those "verification" steps in the sign up? The thing about the random image letters that you have to type down, to make sure no bots can sign up.

Most forums I've been to have those, and I haven't seen many bots on them.

But the fact that they are registering takes up space. I think someone should put up bot protection and delete all the bot accounts.

Oh, and Occupation: Human?

Most bots list their occupation as "human" or "porn." Favorite Spidweb game and real name are almost always listed as their user name. Their location, e-mail, and interests are always random.

There were surely bots before I joined, but I'm still Member #4826. Bot #13000 should be addressed this way.

Hey, folks... in the future, it'd be nice if you would refrain from linking to all those lovely, inappropriate and CoC-breaking bots. They're annoying, but that doesn't mean that they deserve any attention.

Only mods are allowed to link to them and only in the privacy of the Moderator Board to draw attention to them for the admins. They get around to doing bulk deletions.

Er deletions? SW can't even spell that word. They even refuse to delete things and more often then not turn all snooty and make a joke out of your request.

Jeran, both Ephesos and Randomizer are moderators, they do know what they're talking about.

And both of these bots have been deleted, so you're wrong in any case.

Yay! Two deleted bots!

Actually to save time, most bots are just blocked so they can't post, but you don't see the effect in their profiles. Considering the number that swarm in every week getting rid of most of them without upsetting the UBB is the best for now.

There have been requests for the more interesting member numbers getting recycled. A bit soiled, but usable.

The first rule of bots is don't talk about bots. As long as they're not posting, our wonderful admins are on top of things and we don't need to spam for them.

Can we just lock this thread already? Talking about every single bot that pops up, none of which actually post a single thing, is a complete waste of space, and is borderline spam. Seriously.
