Although I haven't posted much since returning, I do visit the forums daily and one thing I noticed is the number of Guests. For a couple of weeks now (maybe more) the number of guests has been in the upper 60's, 68 only 3 days ago and yet none seem to have made themselves members.
Obviously I don't know why but it does seem a bit odd to me. If only 20% made themselves members then surely the site would start to come alive again.
Just an observation of mine. :rolleyes:

Many of the guests will already be members, they just don't login or use the option to stay logged in.

I doubt if there are that many actual non-members visiting.

I was actually thinking it may be internet spiders...

Wikipedia
"Web crawler
A Web crawler, sometimes called a spider, is an Internet bot that systematically browses the World Wide Web, typically for the purpose of Web indexing."

In the best days of FS2 we didn't have as many simultaneous members on line, signed in or not.

There used to be over 1400 members when I had my spell in charge. Someone must of pruned the membership back at some stage.

I think the forum statistics maybe up the creek lol.

478 odd members online out of 679 on one day lol.
