I just happened to notice this in the Users online area. What/Who is driving those Search Robots?
Thanks

Very good question!  We looked into this and here is what we found:

Search robots, also known as bots, wanderers, spiders, and crawlers, are the tools many web search engines, such as Google, Bing, and Yahoo!, use to build their databases. Most robots work like web browsers, except they don't require user interaction.

We keep all of our review forums restricted from public access, so they should not show up in any search results or be accessible by these search robots.  Please let us know if you have any other questions or need anything else.   Thank you!
Next up is the Short Story Challenge 2018 kicking off January 26th.

The line does say there are 48 ACTIVE USERS and it breaks down those users to include them.
