sorry to bring up old topic, but does this work on 3.2?

I also plan on adding "hifikabin" Block Bad Bots with .HTACCESS

I don't know if this Bot list is being maintained, but I spotted 3 active bots that are not in it:

Name / Agent
megaindex [Crawler] / megaindex.com
Qwant [BOT] / Qwantify
British Library [Bot] / bl.uk_lddc_bot

As 3.0.x is no longer supported, I doubt anyone would want to make an up to date script. This post (with the script) was last updated in 2012 viewtopic.php?p=12119145#p12119145

You should also seriously consider upgrading to phpBB 3.2.x

Check the manage_bots code.

You could certainly make the default group "Bad Bots". I don't know about removing them from the Bots group, though. I presume that wouldn't break their bot status, but I don't see a good reason to do it -- they are still bots, after all.

Thank you so much for this great tool. I love it so much. Could we get an updated manage_bots.php for 2018? Including DuckDuckGo etc? :)

Just search the bots you want on google and add them via ACP.

Here is an interesting source of bots https://github.com/monperrus/crawler-us ... gents.json

How about to add the e-mail address to the default 50 bots we have in the database?

The problem here is that you'll need the 50 mailaddresses first 8-) .
Spelling is freeware, which means you can use it for free.
On the other hand, it is not open source, which means you cannot change it or publish it in a modified form.

Hello,

This Bot list is still being maintained?

Ecosia search engine seems to be missing.
I don't find any clue on it.

I am afraid it has not been updated in years. I only hosted it as a service for everyone. If anyone would like to actively support it, please contact me.

Many years ago I also thought about filling in the e-mail addresses: the profile field was there, so why not using it when the information is available? But since then there was not even one occurance where contacting the crawler support was needed (no, never mass-e-mailing, just looking up the address). And those crawlers I sent e-mailed to proved to never answer, let alone change their erratic software.
