Gametracker marks legitimate players as bots

Hi, I came to report something that might affect the ranking of my server.

Gametracker seems to be marking some legitimate players as BOT on the tracking page.
My server:

Proof they're legit players:

A lot of servers from our community got deranked unfairly, despite being normal servers without using any idle clients to gain ranking.

Thanks in advance.

Moved: Not a Gametracker bug.

Gametracker can only report what the server 'tells' it.

Bots (or real players) that are reported as bots do not count towards rank and will not cause a server to be de-ranked.

I am a community user. I do not reply to private message requests for support.
Hint: I do not accept (or reply to) personal requests for re-ranking or unbanning.
You must use the forums please.

Hi! Thanks for your reply.

The server seems to be reporting the players correctly, though.
Whenever a bot is in the server, if you type the Statuscommand in console, it will display something of this sort: #1041 "Greg" BOT active 64.

I don't want to blame Gametracker, but I believe something is wrong in either side, and I cannot figure out what could be the issue on our side, as everything seems just fine.
