Question Guest status

Hey Jade or Becki....I've got another question...when I go to "who's online" I've noticed lately that we've had tons of people on as "guest". Are those people who just haven't registered/signed in yet? Or is that how members stay hidden? (for whatever reason - I have no idea) Do guests have all the privileges of members?

I'm just curious!

The multiple guests you are seeing are internet bots, otherwise known as search engine crawlers. They index our site and help us get traffic, so I personally welcome them.

Guests cannot see chit chat, profiles, create threads, reply to threads, or see who's online. You do have to register to do these things. If you see a bot doing so, they're only getting an error message.

Members using the 'invisible' feature are entirely different. You won't see them in the who's online list, or on the front page. The only way for members to know is if the member count is off. It'll say 5 members online and you'll only see four so you know one is invisible. However, all admins and mods can see whoever's invisible regardless.

Did I answer your questions ok? Any more? Feel free to ask!

Would this be an error in which you mentioned????
(figured I'd ask in this thread, instead making a new one)

Sonic, you need to make up your own mind, what someone else may or may not like, doesn't mean you're going to feel the same way. I personally think this board is pretty cool as does many others and I'm more than sure you'll feel same way too.
