Haven't seen this many bots in awhile. And I still don't know what that spider's doing here.
Why a spider? Why not just another bot? Or maybe a snake?? Or maybe even...a cat...*gets sudden gleam in eye* :lol: :lol:

Perhaps just that they are scanning the registration page. We probably can't tell the difference between that and someone filling in the form ready to join us.

We only accept human voices, though, so even if a bot did register, they'd only be able to volunteer to PL or BC. ;)
There's honestly no such thing as a stupid question -- but I'm afraid I can't rule out giving a stupid answer : : To Posterity and Beyond!

Ah, makes sense. In the Members page, there is a search criteria you can choose called 'Bots' - there are also Admins, Mods, etc.

I've never heard of a bot BCing or PLing before, would they do it perfectly? (Like word perfect PLing?) Or how would they be programmed to PL standard? I wonder if we've had a project where a bot actually did that. Probably not. Just wondering.
