question for you:<br>
I was viewing the detailed list of current users - the list that shows the user name, what thread or forum they are viewing and their IP address. I noticed that it listed out all the user names and then the various "guests" that were on line. There were all two other names I thought were curious:<br><br>
Google Spider<br>
MSNBot Spider<br><br>
with the issues KR has had with hacking, I was wondering if this was perhaps a 'hacker'. What do you think?

No, its not hacking. It indexing the site for searches. Its a good thing! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
Oh, and the "Who's online" is only available to moderators, not to users. It was for awhile, but too many people were not comfortable with it, so it was removed from being available to the users.<br><br>
