Number of users online
« on: December 31, 2012, 04:44:57 PM »
Does anyone knows why the # of online users has been so low, (tens) vs. the 100's it used to be before the "Badon Era ended"?  Did he used a "creative" way of counting or has readership[ dropped so much?

I think part of it was that snowball found an effective way of filtering out the bots and the autospammers that were accessing the site.  People now have to answer a question before they can become active members.

The main page shows number of users online in past 15 mins.   It had been set at 90 mins until I took over the job.
