Something i've noticed

Postby Shazbotdom » Wed May 06, 2009 12:58 am

I noticed that AdBot Names appear in the active users listing as they are browsing through these forums. Personally I find it annoying and for forums that I have set up using phpBB I make it so that they are not visable.

Do the almighty Admins have plans of turning off the visability of the AdBots names?

I found it quite amusing to see myself listed as:

They are there for targeting advertising for the forum, its mentioned in another thread somewhere.

I'm not talking about the advertisments.
The Bot Listings are from the search engines. I just always have them being delisted under "online users" on forums that I set up and I was wondering if the Admins were planning on keeping them visable or making them invisable.

I know, I was just telling Helsingtown what they were. I'd prefer it if they were delisted as well.
