    I can't do a screenshot, but on the main page of this board, "archive.org" is in the active user list at the bottom (at the moment). It's not a member because the name is in black and isn't a link. What is it?

    ARchive.org is a bot which stores the current site on their servers to show how sites did look in the past.

    To see how it works go to

    http://www.archive.org/

    and enter http://www.aol.com into the search field (Wayback machine) and you will find archive dates like
