Those 513 'guests' are mostly Chinese bots that are attempting to search our board. Most of the forums they're attempting to search are closed to guests so all they get is a page that tells them they're not allowed in.stroch wrote: ↑Thu Oct 10, 2019 5:05 pmI think it should be private...actually, I thought it was.
We know about the excessive traffic at times, but we don't know who generates all of it. I guess the mods can see the IP addresses and can do a search if something seems suspicious.
Second edit: right now,I am the only registered member on line,but there are 513 guests.
This board--all of the News board, in fact--has always been open to everyone and will remain so. As far as I can tell, everything that has been posted in this thread is publicly available to anyone willing to put in the time and money to find it. You guys aren't posting anything that falls outside of those guidelines.
