What is the point of it? Since it never posts here anymore, it last visited 3 years ago.

And nor does anyone post in the forums that the bot used to post in.

Have you even looked here (http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=179)?
It last posted yesterday, it's just not "online" all the time.
It's an RSS bot, it feeds any new information on recent updates within nintendo, gamefreak and other such organisations that may be benificial to our knowlage and which we may like to hear, for that matter.
No one posts there because there is no need to, I'm not even sure if you can seeing as in I've never seen a need to bother.

Also I was beaten, I'm not being a parrot xD

So if it posted recently, but the last online info shows that it was last active in 2006, something's up.

Its last visit date is unimportant considering its a bot. That's probably the date it was registered.

Anyway, I hate the RSS forums. They need to just go away. >:[

Are they even visited those RSS Forums? Doubt it.

Yes they are, I frequented them on the build up to HG/SS. Stop acting like a knowitall.

I don't visit the RSS Feed forum in the Pokemon related board, but I do in the Other Entertainment and all of the feeds there are posts regarding games. In which case, it shouldn't be in Other Entertainment, but Other Games (as I pointed out to higher staff a while ago and I believe its in discussion to being moved or deleted).

It's rare that people actually post in the forums, but it does happen; and the bot does post things like news updates, etc. Really Spey, you should stop acting like you know how to run PC, it's very annoying.

Thank you for your interest, but the bot works perfectly right now and the staff has already been discussing it for a while, so this thread is not fully needed.

And since I don't want this thread to end up like all of Spey's, I think I'll be closing it before it's too late.
