Who is Online?

I'm sure that thing at the bottom of the index page chats shit. Look at the number of unregistered visitors per day. Surely they've gotta be bots?

A fair few of them probably are bots but as I understand it our "Who is online"is not limited to real time activity.

If I had to guess I would say it displays all users over a time period of 1 hour or so which would make it possible for a single guest to be counted more than once. I could be wrong about that last thing though.

unless if they have a dynamic IP I don't think it would count them more than once, I know we have lots of lurkers though as every time someone signs up or an old member comes posts after being away for ages always starts with "I've been lurking" but you're probably right for it not being real time, I know when I sign out I'm noted as online for pretty long after, we probably have over 100 bots as well considering how they love this place or maybe they're just trying to unite with their master kiba :lol:

EDIT: ah I stand mistaken, as soon as I sign out I am counted as offline, I guess they fixed that

They aren't counted twice, we legitimately have a lot of lurkers who are sent to our Shenmue forums through various online searches. Our site averages a ton more. The community is really not a valid indication of our site activity, you guys would be surprised how many hits and legit visits we receive.

I have logged out for half an hour or 45 minutes and came back on using another computer and it says I'm online before I even log in so it's still looking at the session I had on the other computer.

Oftentimes I don't even bother logging on unless I want to post something. So you can count me as one of those lurkers too, I guess.
