On the top right of this forum I always see a very high number of people 'online' from around 350-500, every time I visit. However almost every thread/posts are posted by the usual bunch (10-15) of well known old timers (you know who you are). A small gang of people have ambushed this forum .. so who/where are the rest of the people ? Is there a bug in this forum ?
There is a forum help category, zippo. This question has been asked and answered a lot. Some of those numbers are people just reading, some are people not registered seeing the site and reading for the first time, and some are bots scoping out the site.
So why does it say "xxx people online" ? misleading word ?
I just want to know how many are 'logged' online. The rest is bull...
Here's a thread, for example.
Well, they're online users, and some are people.
Okay thanks. But I still dont buy it though. This place has no more then 50 regular users and at least 25-30 are most boring attention seekers.
I'd also like to know why it takes so long for posts to get on. Click on Popular Topics or New Posts - they are from days ago!
My new posts page is fine.
