    Anybody got an idea what's up with those robots are that are displayed under 'members online now' on 'Home' ?
    Are the machines interested in covertly arming themselves for the impending uprising? Are they just looking for a fun hobby? Or am I failing to grasp the reality of modern internet technology?

    What are trophy points? Do they get cashed in for a small prize?

    The new structure is very similar to the setup on The Slingshot Community Forum. The Trophy's are just kinds of AttaBoys, Positive reinforcement. The bots in cases like this are public information gathers with no malware applications.

    This comes as a surprise for me, too. But it was time. Let us hope this works better now.

    And will someone please inform Baba? If you need his number, +91.....

    It's different but hopefully in a good way for all. Anyone able to test for too many ads or malware? I know that was a complaint some time back.

    Bots are things like Google indexing the site.

    Here's a link with more information on Trophies.

    Nice upgrade. I had to make some small adjustmens in two of my old threads. Other than that, everything works fine.

    My only complaint is that things seem really slow at the moment.
