What's with the users that appear in pink text sometimes? If you want to call them users, since they don't show up in the list.

Pink text? Do you mean grey text saying something like "Google [bot]" or "MSNbot Media"? Those are quite literally bots scanning through the forum to index the content for search engines. I was thinking of removing them, or making them less noticeable when building the new theme.

If I'm wrong on guessing what you're talking about then maybe you should take a screen capture to show me what you mean.


EDIT: Now that I've seen a bot again, I guess it does look a little pink.

FYI, that's just phpBB (the forum software) indicating that the bot is crawling the forum at that time. It's informational only, but I can't imagine many people would care for that information.
