*shoving Laurie aside* Me first, me first!
and what's with his own top?
and what's with his own top?
No worries. We'll fix that for him, too.
OK. I think the age thing is sorted, but I'll press on the tops and get the smilies straightened out.
Thank you, Carl!!
It sort of a reciprocal agreement.
I just noticed something else... when you click on Online, there's Member Info, Visitor Info and Search Bot Info... so the visitors are real people now?
hey cool, I haven't noticed that yet
Why do bots keep emailing/viewing posts? Who do the emailed posts go to?
the bots are from Search engines... they crawl the pages and index them for their sites (google, yahoo etc.)... maybe they're using the email option for that purpose
But they keep printing stuff too, and I don't think they really do that
... or maybe they automatically try every link they come across
the bots are from Search engines... they crawl the pages
this all sounds terribly sinister somehow. Like a bad science fiction flick.
it's the right terminology though
sometimes they're called Bot, sometimes "(web)Crawler", "Spider"... oh and the one from yahoo is called "Slurp"
just imagine these nice little fellows from the Matrix
back to topic:
I just noticed that you can't see email adresses in the profile anymore...
I just noticed that "Most Users Online" finally works like it should
"b-o-t" is a great word if you are a Scrabble or Boggle player...I think the definition has something to do with a bot fly.
I've got a question about Buddy Requests... I got a buddy request a few minutes ago, and the person who sent it included a message with it. I accepted it, the buddy request message disappeared (as it should), but there was immediately a new PT, apparently started by me, containing the message from the other person in such a way that it looked like I sent that message and the PT.
I reenacted that with Martin just now, he sent me a request, I accepted it, and suddenly there was a PT from me to him, just saying "This user would like to be added to your user list", even though it was him who sent the request in the first place.
Can this feature be changed or switched off?
for me this seems to be a "feature for the feature's sake"
I mean I could live with an automatically generated PT when you have a new Buddy...
but really, if I want to be a Buddy with someone I have generally already talked with him/her and quite probably already have a PT open so is there really the need for a new one?
but especially the (random?) opening message is a bit strange...
"This user would like to be added to your user list" is at least clearly an automatically written message (aside from the logical flaw that 1. he already IS in the other's list and 2. the other person sent the request in the first place)
but the other message Fin told me about: "HI, I'm new here and just want to make some friends" is just... weird
just my two cents
No but I think the other person sent that message to me, together with the buddy request.. but now it looks like I sent it, which is a bit stupid
ah okay, I got that wrong...
in that case it's not only weird, but a bug
Hey! I just noticed this, but the "Current Quote Box" is gone!
Aaack. Didn't notice the quote box. I rejiggers the sidebar, and am hoping it shows up again soon. The quotes are all still there, it's just a display issue.
