Ignorebots not ignoring bots

PhantomBot Version: 2.4.2
OS Version: Linux (Mageia 7)
Java Version: 1.8.0_191
Browser and Version (for Panel Support): Firefox 64.0.2
Stock PhantomBot: Yes

My ignorebots.txt file isn’t preventing bots from gaining points or loyalty. I rebuilt the file from scratch using vim to make sure the line endings were LF only (a previous version of the file was probably CR+LF, but I was having all sorts of problems reading the file, which is why I rebuilt it). Here’s the file itself: ignorebots.txt (356 Bytes)

(Full Disclosure: I have an easy workaround, so it’s not the end of the world if it’s just me, but if there’s any other way I can see what’s going on, let me know!)

UPDATE: Does the Cleanup System module need to be enabled? ('Cause it’s not right now…)

make sure you reboot the bot or do !reloadbots after you edit that file?

Rebooting didn’t work. Just tried it, and went live briefly. Blacklisted users are still getting points.

This feature is only in the nightly build.

Yep, that makes sense! Thanks!
