    Default "Most users ever online was 13,572, 4th November 2018"

    Anyone else notice this? That's recent, and a massive number! I remember for a long time, the users stats had plateaued at a relatively low levels after achieving a high sometime before 2010. Did we just break the barrier and smash the old record?!

    Not sure if this is news to anyone or not (maybe the numbers have been at or around these levels for awhile, I have no idea)...but congrats to Grant the Mods for making Basenotes a great place! Your efforts are clearly paying off with this unprecedented visitorship! Basenotes is resurgent!

    I notice user numbers and have asked about them in the past. I have always been doubtful when these numbers suddenly double the usual amount. I think there might have been some server maneuvering or adjustment going on at those times.

    Most users ever online at 4:29 in the morning? That doesn't sound too likely.

    I don't think there's any question that the overall number of posts per day are down significantly from the old days.

    4:29am in what time zone? Perhaps we went viral in Australia.

    I doubt it. I wish it were true but am willing to bet it is an error.

    Between 30 October and 14 November was the time that Grant was working on reinstating all the post counts that had disappeared. Wouldn't surprise me if this user count was somehow related to that issue.

    Ah ha. Well now I feel silly.

    Well, thanks to Grant and mods anyway, if the count isn't legit. You can never have too many excuses to say it!

    Don't take it as gospel -- I'm only guessing.
