Number of Users online?

Post by lkm » Thu Mar 05, 2009 11:24 am

Just curious, this is on the bottom of the page:

"Most users ever online was 100 on Fri Sep 21, 2007 6:40 pm"

I highly doubt that this ever had 100 users online at the same time, especially in September (outside the ski season).

I'm not an admin on this board, but run one based on similar software at www.outtanowheres.ca. I'm guessing that this is not "registered users" but lots of "guest users". These can include things like automated indexing "crawlers" and spam bots trying to create accounts.

I'm just guessing though...

You're probably right. I see that the number includes "guests" and not just "registered users". Like right now it says there are 2 users online (1 registered user and 1 guest). The registered user is me, the guest is some random person. And this site did have a problem with spammers in the past.
