Nothing, or nothing you can see.

I was checking who was online ( I had 2 guests) and one was viewing the board the other had this messege
"Nothing, or nothing you can see." Kinda disturbing, especially when their ip's were unknown to Honeypot.


Does anybody know what this messege means? I am the only admin or mod as of right now

To write the SMF software to show every possible manoeuvre could end up bloating it quite a bit. Nothing or nothing you can see could mean someone is (trying to) editing a post, deleting a post, using the Search, editing their profile...but it doesn't mean the bot is doing it, merely 'reading' the options.

There are a number of threads on this throughout the support sections and the consensus is this is almost always harmless.

However, there is a mod which can be installed which decodes these messages. Have a look in the modifications section (or enter "smf mod" into your browser) then in the Search Field enter Nothing then give it a try and say how you got on.

The IP resolves to Seattle, Washington in the USA from Amazon.com inc but isn't listed as being a spammer.

No prob. They're probably just nosing about like most of the bots on the net.  :)
