    Subj. The renovated site is just fine, but is it possible for common members to identify robots amidst their ranks, or only mods have the privilege? Likes, ignores, responds, mockery, this kind of stuff that robots can do

    Don't know if this will work for regular users, but if you click on 'Users Online Now' it will give you a full list. There's a tab at the top of the display for Members, Guests, and Robots. In the Robot list now it seems to be mostly Google, Yahoo, Bing, and Baidu.

    Within the context of the Boards, what in Flamewind, is a "Robot"?

    Is it like a sock, or a completely automated function like a bot, or what?

    It's a crawler for a search engine. That enables sites like Bing and Google to display information from here.

    Your droids. They'll have to wait outside. We don't want them here.

    Robot mockery is the most hurtful sort of mockery. Sometimes, the things they say are just heartless...

    That's just the sort of thing I expect to hear from mocking robots. [face_not_talking]
