[suggest] acp_bots parse

Post by bx67212 »

hi all,

1st. sorry for my english!

Usually people have under 100 bots, so the request for this was generally unnecessary. How many do you have? IMHO, flooding your board with possible bot combination is useless, look at the last access field of those bots, how many have actually visited your board?

I'm not talking about absolute user visits, but how many of the bots have proved activity. I can guess that most of them says "Never" under the Last visit field. When you look at the list of bots, there are several columns, one of them is when the bot last visited the board.

Where did you come up with that many? The user-maintained bot list only has about 92.

If your bots are spambots, those shouldn't be listed in the Bots area at all. The Bots area is intended for search engines and other legitimate Web crawlers.

The Development Team actively reads Discussion topics, ergo they will notice this topic (if one has not already). Whether or not they opt to add this is a completely different story.

In order to add a feature to phpBB, it has to make sense and there have to be valid reasons to include it.

The only case where this is useful is when a user has so many bots, I've already tried to prove to you that it is absolutely useless to have so many of them on your board.

I think that this change is useful for who like me have many bots but if a user not have many bots view them into 1 page.. (pagination is active only if bots are more than N) :P

And why do you have so much bots? Is it useful in some way?

I'm able to know what happens on my board...

I have also user agent of sowtware that for example capture the site offline (webcopier, teleport etc)..

I can limitate this with permission..

I think it is useful (just for me :P)

If you say it'd be useful just for you, then why add it for everyone?

useful just for me... ..have over 500 bots -.-

moreover the request IS NOT just for me... as I have said the suggest is useful for all because if you do not have N bots you see your list in 1 page; if you have more than N bots you see the list in N page -.-
