    A Robot is an internet web crawler sent out to check out different sites, most of them are good but some do attempt to join. Have you ever gone to a site to join or contact them and been asked to repeat a series of letters or numbers that you see in a block or asked to repeat your email address or password? Those are to weed out Robots that try to join usually for no good purpose.

    A Guest is an actual human who is visiting and might join.

    I hate it when they give you some numbers or letters all jumbled close together, half of the time I get them wrong and can't get on the site...Maybe I am a robot and Mom never said a word to me...Ha,ha... seriously, I think they are hard to read or get right.

    @ Frank:
    Thanks for all the work putting the new platform together. :) XenForo FTW! It's so much easier to navigate now!
    Anyway, I've been on hiatus from the site (and mostly from gardening) for more than a year so I was really surprised (and happy) when I logged in today. :D Now that I'm all over plants and stuff again, I'll be using the forum a lot and this totally pwns!
    But yeah, I'm with S-H on getting dark skins... Not a huge issue or anything but it would be really cool.
    Just one thing I still needa test and that's vids... sooo I'll text that now...



    Works! 2 ways = MEDIA/URL.
    @ S-H:
    I like the thing about incorporating Google translate in the future but it still has some serious issues with Russian-to-English. It doesn't get a lot of Russian grammar or pop phrases.
    But yeah, I totally do agree that it would really pwn to get more international members.
