I haven't taken notice yet, but while spine crawlers are unburrowed, do they still count as detectors? Or must they be burrowed?

lol, I think someone doesn't like me on here... always likes to downvote xD – Nick122 Oct 16 '12 at 21:25
I downvoted this one because it's an absurdly easy to answer question. I didn't know the answer either, I just googled it in about 6 seconds. Some of your other questions have been more interesting. – Decency Oct 18 '12 at 18:53
My thought in posting this question here, was for when others search for the same question, draw more users to this site. – Nick122 Oct 18 '12 at 19:16
Questions posted should be about actual problems you face. Arqade will never supplant a game specific wiki for things like this. – Decency Oct 18 '12 at 19:39
It was a true, real problem I faced. Others may have faced the same problem. – Nick122 Oct 18 '12 at 21:21

According to Liquipedia, they only detect when burrowed:

Take note that Spore Crawlers lose their detection ability while uprooted.
