You are lucky only one bot at a time visiting...last year before they optimized their bots, I got hit by 100+ google bots (all from different IPs!) at the same time, and it was every weekend! Contacted them about this, and guess what? now bots visiting maybe ones a day for a few requests. But yeah, robot.txt is also a good tool to control bots.
You might find this site usefull for more info about different types of agents:

I was surprised to learn how many of them are "bad" bots out there...

Anyway, it turns out that google bots can be quite nasty, I had no idea about this...

Couple of points:  First, Google is evil - but in a hideously friendly way.  Second, everyone out to be ponying up some money to help offset the costs of this site.  This site adds depth to the BF2 gaming experience.

Since this is my first post here I'd like to say thanks for the stats, but I wouldn't call what you have queried your content. At most it is EAs, but don't take that as being ungrateful for what you have setup.
No, it's not his content, but the programming to make it available is.  One would be free to make a deal with EA/Dice/Gamespy/et. al. to create your own stats site directly from EA's stats data, but "scraping" Chuy's site to grab that same data, via his hard and excellent work, would be unethical and not very nice.

How do you know that someone isnt running a script that visits at apparently random times to random ids and DBs them?

Are you asking about trying to get copies of all of the players stats stored on this site?

Because I think Chuy hit 250,000 users... and if you could pull 1 per second, it would take almost 3 days to get them all, and I'm pretty sure Chuy would notice the same IP address requesting 3,600 stat pages an hour.

Slow it down to once per minute (which I think Chuy would *still* notice, as I would imagine that would still put that IP at the top of a usage list), and now by the time you're done, for the first player you pulled, their stats are almost 6 months old.


Erm, basically if you wanted to get all the content on this site, you'd either get noticed, or have to be so slow that by the time you got 10% into it, it's already stale and out of date...  and who knows, by the time you'd finish, this site would be long gone, and Chuy would be working on BF3S.com (though I suppose that would depend on how masochistic he is).
