I pulled the plug on the forum jump option because it was allowing for an infinite loop of the site for googlebot.



Your analogy is similar to:

"They already have cars that you can drive, why not blenders?"
"I can already write with my hands, why not my pancreas?"
"They already have beef that I can eat, why not granite?"

-- my new favorite quote from Slashdot comments.

Will that be back later then, or will google keep sending bots and if we don't want them around then we can't be jumping between forums?



High tide for the time being.

Uhm... I may be able to bring it back for registered users, as Google is hitting us using the guest account. There was a lot of fuckery happening behind the scenes and I figured the best way to fix it was to pull the plug temporarily and fix it at night some day.

The code is still there, it's just commented out. I'm sure someone could just put an if statement in front of it checking for a registered user and have it come back in.

It is gone for good for guests though... well... ok maybe not I may actually fix what it was doing, but probably not. Fuck the chickens.

If its a hassle don't stress about it. I was just asking cuz I'm curious from a what's-up-with-google aspect.

I fixed it. It wasn't Google, it was the code, specifically the syntax of some of the JavaScript. (I didn't even know Google was smart enough to FOLLOW JavaScript - I am in fear.)

It should be fixed. We reset the "default" skin at midnight and it apparently caught up anyone (you are probably the only person in the entire world) who actually selected "Pffft!" as their skin while logged in.
