Not sure if we need our forum crawled. The crawling helps to find our threads via Google, but I do not believe that many people search there, so it is questionable if there is a need for those threads to be found. From what I understand those spiders use forum bandwidth (not sure how much ~6-9 spiders use) but if we do not want/need them it might be best to disable them.
To protect the spacehands and officers of the Imperial Navy, the Emperor Gavin is equipped with 5 Turret Sandcasters, an efficient 9MW Meson Screen, 600 sensor decoys, and a hull over 5.3 centimeters thick of proven Bonded Superdense Armor.

I'd recommend against disabling it. I don't think this forum's pagerank is that much higher than that old darkbb forum and disallowing robots might drop it below after a while, which means we'd have more geniuses posting ban appeals etc on the old forum. Spiders use very little bandwidth and we're not coming anywhere near using our monthly allowance so there's no need to imo
