Most users online query

Post by Doggett » 00:51 Mon 04 Jan 2016

"Most users ever online was 268 on 13:55 Mon 19 Nov 2012"

I am intrigued to know what happened at lunchtime on 19th Nov 2012 that led to the peak member traffic which I would guess was roughly 50% of members online...or is this ever present stat not what it seems?

Spambots and Crawlers. Automated processes from the internet search engines that browser the net indexing pages, key words etc. For some reason lots of them turned up at roughly the same time.
