Saw this on the 'online users' bit. (see attachment)
So what is a 'google spider'?

Edit: Oh yeah another question: how often do you look for mods? i know you've just added a few so it might not be a while.. just wondering

No idea on the Google Spider (but I do find it amusing), but there's no real time set for when we look for new mods. It really depends on how the staff is running; if someone steps down or gets promoted, we may feel the need to fill the spot(s) or we may not. It's really unpredictable.

Googlebot is the search bot software used by Google, which collects documents from the web to build a searchable index for the Google Search engine. We use a huge set of computers to fetch (or "crawl") billions of pages on the web. The program that does the fetching is called Googlebot (also known as a robot, bot, or spider).
