Most Online:  491 - Today at 07:44:56 AM

Quite a lot of traffic.  About double the typical recent volume and 18% above the previous daily record of 415 set on May 7, 2012.

Since the online peak today was at 07:44:56 AM (Mountain Standard Time, USA) on a Sunday, that volume of traffic isn't based in the US.  I wonder where all the traffic was coming from (Sunday evening in coastal China?) and why there was such a spike today.  Perhaps someone just posted some links directing people to the forum.

I will give credit to hipanda and tjujoypop.

The buyers of fake NGC 1987 Mazu gold coins are from China.

Tiujoypop’s clear and detailed pictures of rare version of 1 Yuan 1985 Tibet proof coin can not be found at any website until now at CCF.

The record falls again.  At 10:40:55 AM today, forum time, we had 551 online at the same time.

Traffic may be high on CCF but glengary's sale got my attention.  Most of his MCC offerings were sold within 24 hrs and many were high end, several $ thousand.  Rare MCC are getting bought up from what I can see.  Maybe increased rarity sales has something to do w/ increased traffic........

I am not sure if the spike in traffic had anything to do with it,but the forum was briefly down when i tried to access it a couple of hours ago.

The spike in traffic this morning mostly was due to spam bot attack.   >:(

The forum was down for about 30 mins around 8pm Eastern time causing by losing database connection to the server.   It is fixed now.
