848 Users Online - 81 Registered

Post by Andrew Pohlman » Wed Nov 08, 2017 10:30 pm

I just saw the momentary stats for forum activity. It amazes me that there are 848 users online. That's a lot of people! And ~10X more than registered users! Sometimes I log on and there are 4 of us online in the cafe. What is normal? Is this a temporary phenomenon? Are these the displaced users from Foro Flamenco? Why 10X more unregistered? I just surprised by the numbers. :D

What I am seeing at the bottom of the screen right now is a list of 8 named users who are browsing this form then 'and 19 guests'. I think I have seen that sort of thing before - it's not 10x though, obviously.

I doubt you will show as registered unless you are logged in, so the 848 will include a lot of people who actually are registered.

I've been wondering if the forum system registers somebody as 'here' if their browser is inactive for a while - I quite often leave a window open and put the computer to sleep overnight, does that mean it thinks I'm actually here all night (maybe its been known ... ) and does that affect the numbers showing up in the stats?

8 registered and 20 guests as of now ...

If you go back to the board index you get something like this:

Who is online

In total there are 889 users online :: 76 registered, 0 hidden and 813 guests (based on users active over the past 60 minutes)
Most users ever online was 973 on Thursday 02 November 2017, 17:07 pm

So it looks as though it assumes you've really gone if you haven't done anything for 60 minutes.

What I can't explain is why the ratio of people who are logged in to people who aren't should differ so much depending on whether you are looking at the forum as a whole or a subforum. It doesn't seem to be just this one that is around 8:19.

Also, it seems that the total by subforum one level down does not add up to the total at the root level - unless the numbers from the Italian and other non-English forums are also included even though the top/root level here seem to be just the English forum.
