  • Statistics Manipulation - The Tricks Admins Play

    I was searching the web today for something or other, and came across this vb forum that had a handful of posts, yet the stats had a max users online over 1200. I asked the question as to what his session timeout was, as that was the only thing I could think off that would manipulate such a figure for a site that showed 1 or 2 online. I got a reply... 9999999999999999999 as he didn't like to be logged out and also knew it would give him a big online at once number hoping it would entice new membership. Apparently it didn't work for him from my estimation.

    Mine is set to 60 minutes and my "Most online" entry shows 1,101 from a few years ago. Keep in mind, this total includes bots, guests, etc.
