    Now there are ____523_____ guests - is this a bug or some fantastic technique that we don't know about yet?

    There are currently 45 member(s) and 519 guest(s) on the boards.

    Someone better spill what they did - I'd love to know how to get this sort of traffic to a forum :P

    [EDIT] it seems James and I posted this at the same time.. just wanted to clear it up that it wasnt my intent to repeat what he just said.

    Are you just saying this, or have you confirmed it? Becuase I thought it was just because they bought echoweb and those users are coming here...

    Rangersfan helped develop vBulletin and he is correct to a point.

    Traffic is higher meaning we have more page views and more posts and more sessions. However of those 500+ guest sessions only about 80 of them are valid. There was another problem that I am trying to track down and I have removed some code that would have prevented the large guest numbers and made them more accurate.

    I was discussing this with James (the JamesUS one) on ICQ, and I was pretty sure it was a bug. Think rationally:

    EchoDev might bring in some more guests, BUT do you think a site like EchoDev gets up to 9 times more visiotrs than SitePoint (normally there are 50 guests. 50x9=450+50=500)

    I also saw, although there were 500 guests, nobody signed up for 3 hours. My reasoning

    But I have seen there are more members online lately, as well as a bit more guests than usual (before the vB2 switch)

    so still congrats

    Yea I almost said the same. I doubt that echoweb gets more visitors and guests than sitepoint...in fact, I am sort of curious how much traffic they get and if its a wise buy for sitepoint...I still haven't see a single echoweb user besides the owner...
