Forum Bots

Whatever you want to talk about, for whatever reason. Can't believe you don't want to discuss zombies though... shame on you.

Forum Bots

Postby Petso » Sun Feb 17, 2013 8:45 pm

Well, I just wanted a list of all the forum bots we've been seeing, so I made this thread :D

So far there is:
Yahoo [Bot]
Google [Bot]
Bing [Bot]
MSN [Bot]
Majestic-12 [Bot]
Crawler [Bot]
Exabot [Bot]
Google Feedfetcher [Bot]
Alexa [Bot]


And, well, that's all I can remember. I know there are more, but I just can't remember.

Google Feedfetcher is a new bot.

Exabot sounds like a badass.
What is a signature? Just a miserable pile of words! But enough talk, HAVE AT YOU!

Feedfetcher sounds like some sort of exotic infected. Like forget **** regular infected and even the special infected. This is the motherfucking Feedfetcher we are talking about.

I imagine that, in Special Infected terms, it would "fetch" food for other Infected, similar to a combination of Jockey and Smoker from L4D.

It grabs it, then attempts to transport it to other Infected.

I saw it on the "Users browsing blah blah" part at the bottom of the screen. Next time I see it, do you want me to get a screenshot?
