The " bots "may seem small and boring now but just give them time and they will surpass all of us humans.
Might even have some relevant ideas no one else has thought of yet.
Why not a special thread for bots only ?
The whole idea of bots is that it the owners have no need to visit the site or check what the bot has posted. As an example, if posts are reported as being likely to be bots then in some cases I will PM them stating they need to reply to me within a set time to not get banned. So far none of them have replied so based on that it is reasonable to presume that their owners don't bother checking the bot once it is active.
I am moderating an italian forum about trading, we intruduced questions on registrations and we totally solved the bot problem.
BTW if there are supersmart bots maybe they will post better content than real users so they are welcome.
This is just the beginning, there's the proverbial "elephant in the room" we also seem to be forgetting making T2W less enjoyable to read. A thread being populated by a complete turd, let alone non-human
I think we alway have a lot of bots registering every day but we don't notice it.
There are too many users with 0 or 1 message.
What's the point registering a forum if you do not post?
ther is a crowd of registere silent bots while this is a new annoying kind of bot.
