Just wondering why there are so many bots showing at the bottom of this forum where it shows which members are currently on line ? Are they invited or uninvited ?

Great question. Bots show up as unique IPs when they scan the forum and assigned a unique name (like, Googlebot), this way they are not counted in traffic numbers and are easily identified as non-human traffic. :)
