I've noticed recently purple users referred to as bots on the online list.

Can someone explain to me what these are? Is ggogle/yahoo/whoever actually alive and reading our forums?

Can someone give me some insight on this?

The robotssssss are taking over. :0

I don't understand it all fully myself, but if I had to make a logical guess it would be the search engines' bots swarming around for stuff to display in searches.

They're gray, not purple.

And yes, it's just the crawlers indexing all the posts.

THE GREAT ROBOT CONSPIRACY OF 08!!! Afonso you should know what I mean :P

But it's just the engines finding what to put on the search engines? Whew, thats a relief.

Feel free to lock now mods, or you can just let this die down. Since when were you forced to lock posts?

Actually, as webmaster and template editor, I'm pretty sure it's not magenta.

Funny. It's supposed to be gray for everyone (which I assume based off of our webmaster's words), and for the most part I believe everyone sees it as gray. Maybe you're the chosen one and can see the bot's magenta-colored souls...?
