I noticed at the bottom of the forum, where it shows the current active users, that an AskJeeves Bot temporarily joined our consortium.

Couple questions, does AskJeeves even exist anymore?? An attempt at reaching askjeeves. com redirects me to ask. com


Is the bot just an affiliate of ask. com?

Please consider donating to help support the continued prompt and excellent services of this site.

I guess they forgot to rename the bot?

You can edit the bots 'username' in the ACP, IPB detects the bots by user-agent and search for the matching name.

OK, now it will show as 'Ask Bot'. Thanks, Martijnc. :)
