Noticed this bot in the top ten bots in the server logs:


Coming from the United States.

Does any one have any idea what it is?

According to a google search, for "dwbot", it must be an old dream world bot for an online Pokemon game.

See: https://github.com/Sanqui/dwbot

  • Yeah I found this, but presumed it wasn't the same bot. Why would some bot for an old Pokemon game be making upwards of 30K requests every day on a website? There are also similar bots with the same name on Git Hub github.com/dwbot/dwbot I don't think it is these.
