  • Why always so many guests online?

    Silly question but like where it says who's online it's like 20 members and like 748 guests (random number). Why so many 😂😂

        They're like non members viewing topics. Presumably brought here from like search engines and stuff

              It's the same on another forum i use, they're probably people who searched something up and came across a certain thread, you'll be surprised how many people search websites without signing up x

                Hey guys

                Just to add to what's already been said (thanks Skive!), lots of those guests will be people reading threads they've found from Google.
                Believe it or not, the most viewed thread ever is Cantonese style sweet and sour? - around 28,000 people have read that thread in the last couple of years! (and almost all of them on Saturday evenings!)

                Some of those guests will also be bots - software used by search engines like Google to index websites.

                        Great question.
                        It's a little tricky to extract reliable stats from the boards software. For example, it's telling us that the most users ever online on one day was the 31st of Jan 2017, with 590 registered users online. To be honest, that doesn't seem right, particularly when compared to the average day this year. Apart from that blip, the stats tell us that the most users online at once was back in March 2005: 377 people online (but the stats don't go back further than that).

                            Cool. That did seem to be the busiest period around here. Is that users or members?
