Hi Robert,

According to the details at the bottom of my Forum index page, at this UK lunchtime, we (the X# forum) had a total of one less than three hundred members logged in. 5 'FOX' guys and 294 guests.

Is this correct ? If so its 'huge' ;-0)

For some reason I feel it is a false value, and I may have seen the same 294 value in the past. Could we get some sort of spurious number when the total passes a certain value ? Or does one number graphically only partially over-write an earlier (underneath) value ?

Is there any way you can confirm this or otherwise ?

Regards,
Phil.

Phil,
i'd suspect folks log in and don't log out, to get correct "new" hints when visiting next time.

While the mail-notification helps to stay current, naturally it won't track new threads, where one hasn't set it...

@Robert: could we get a "notify me for any new post" option?

Phil,

I am afraid that is not correct.

We did "suffer" from an attack today. Some script kiddies or the KGB/FSB tried to register fake accounts on the website, with fake email addresses. This did not work because we require a confirmation before opening the new account.
I just deleted some 50 unconfirmed new accounts...
Maybe you saw the number when they were attacking the site.

Phil,

Yes very sad. I had to delete another 20 'fake users' this morning. This is becoming part of my daily routine...

Well the positive side: apparently our website is important enough to be targeted by people.
