  • Hundreds of Identical Guests

    I installed vb yesterday and published it to the public today. I went to visit it about 5 minutes ago and there were like 500+ guests online with identical IP's, except for the last few digits. Will someone please tell me what the hell is going on with my forums?

    This is a search engine spidering your site.

      is there anyway to actually call the spider. i actually liked that. i installed mine and it happened too. but then i had to redo it since i messed up and the spider never came back

        Floris put together this thread with a means of displaying guests as "MSNBot", etc. instead of "Guest" (although actual guests will still appear as "Guest"):
