Apparently the Google.com bot crawls sites every so often in search of new material...because it was here. Under "Registered Users", there was "Bots: Google".

I hope this is the only script visiting us!!

I've seen it on more than one occasion...even more than once the same day. My experience with bots tells me that it's automated, probably here to get new material every so often. Or it could be a malicious script disguised as the Google bot, but let's hope not.

what do you mean by "get new material" exactly? i guess i misunderstood what you meant by that. i thought you meant that google is looking for new game forums to put in their search engine. i think im wrong.

That is pretty much what I meant. I don't know exactly why they show up here, but I'm assuming it's because they're searching for new material (a guess) or simply looking for new sites to include in the search engine (more likely)

Yeah I'm not too worried about it anymore. It was weird the first few times I saw them, but now we see them regularly. Just wish they could tell their little bot buddies about us Smile

LMAO GoogleBot!!!! Oh how I love that little fella. Do you realize how much pain and suffering web developers go through to get that little bastard to pay more attention to their sites?? Alot!!! Anyway, yes the googlebot is a Google side program that surfs the internet and "indexes" websites for searching. It is completely normal. You will start seeing numerous other bots too on occasion some from more off beat search engines, like AskJeeves.

Sweet! So should we be like a little southern villiage of the internet and make a giant sign saying "X3F WELCOMES BOTS TO THIS PLANET"... erm... i mean, WEBSITE!

What a shame... there is no hillbilly smilie on this forum. If I had one, I would submit one for the good of the site.

Haha, what could be better.

I hope Mater didn't give the bot any crap about having a sister with moles all over her face...

Classic Larry the Cable Guy joke...
