    Most Users Ever Online

    Our current record set recently.

    "Most users ever online was 181 at 05:34 PM on 05-11-2021"

    This is way higher than the previous record of 115. This thread can be a record of how "most ever" changes, or stays the same, over time.

    I wonder what causes the bots to occasionally swarm like that. Last time, when it was 115, it was actually up around that number for a few days in a row before suddenly dropping back to normal.

      How do you know it was all or mostly bots that accounted for the surge?

        You can get a pretty good idea by looking at back end "who's online" information, although I didn't do that this time. That's just typically what causes such a surge, and is generally a more logical guess than 150 random people suddenly finding us all at once.

          I don't even know what the bots are about. Collecting info for search engines?

          believe it or not most traffic is generated by picture threads....mostly meme threads

          I don't know what the bots actually do either.

            In this infinite internet abyss it's probably those complex intricate computer techy code things causing the number stats to intuitively bounce & move around depending on content of whatever is being said in all the TF posts & commenting activity attracting lots of bots to the site.

              An army of bots can be used for all kinds of purposes. For years I tried to write something similar to operate in the HF chat room. Here's the interpreter code:

              Character=white;non-echo
              Macro-Gen process file: writers%20panic.mcr
              Character file: Daily-nonholiday.chr
              .[Start Engine]

              Engine by vBulleatin Ver. 6.9
              Artificial Insanity Indexer
              Open Recognition Index: hipchat.idx
              Scan=roomlist.rtv
              Go Live = "oink" : Timer=13

              Recog=" RubyS0h0"
              Kickout$="highya How's yer ass" Gender= "?"
              highya Rubes How's yer ass??

              Recog=" Lolli "
              Kickout$="highya How's yer ass" Gender= "?"
              highya Lolli How's yer ass babe??

              Recog=" jake_the_snake "
              Kickout$="highya How's yer ass" Gender= "?"
              highya jake_the_snake How's yer ass man??

              Recog=" Faelixx " Value = Null
              Kickout$="highya wtf" Gender= "?"
              highya Faelixx who the fuck are you??

              Recog=" :spliff " Value = Null
              Kickout$="yea, I'd like a fat :spliff "


              Timer=9.99:Resp$="just fine"
              Timer=9.98:Resp$="cool"
              Timer=9.97:Resp$="indeed"
              Timer=9.96:Resp$="no way"
              Timer=9.95:Resp$="you're fucked"
              Timer=9.94:Resp$="I'm fucked"
              Timer=9.93:Resp$="who said that"
              Timer=9.92:Resp$="no shit"
              Timer=9.91:Resp$="Adios"
              Timer=6.91:Resp$="You shouldn't have fucked with me while I was alive, now I'm gonna fuck with you forever!"



              Timer=1.66:kickout="I will never grow old, I am eternal!"
              Timer=1.33:kickout="I need PORK!!"
              Timer=2.28:kickout="aye knead secks"
              Timer=1.05:kickout="eye knead uh bleaux jaab"
              Timer=3.16:kickout="not much happening today"
              Timer=7.22:kickout="hippies must be in church"
              Timer=4.20:kickout="group toke?"
              Timer=2.31:kickout="where is everybody???"
              Timer=3.41:kickout="Hi everybody"
              Timer=5.01:kickout="Aloha Folks"
              Timer=3.13:kickout="I'm fading"
              Timer=3.14:kickout="ready for bed"

              Initiate=commiecount.cnt
              cycle=1:kickout="5 You capitalist pigs"
              cycle=2:kickout="4 You capitalist pigs"
              cycle=3:kickout="3 You capitalist pigs"
              cycle=4:kickout="2 You capitalist pigs"
              cycle=5:kickout="1 You capitalist pigs"
              cycle=6:kickout="Chernobyl in the Bowlsky Comrades"
              cycle=7:kickout=" :spliff "





              But it never worked the way I wanted. Made it seem like I was saying the same shit every night. Even with a rotating timer acting as a randomizer it would eventually slide into a predictable pattern. It made me look both stoned and senile. Nobody ever noticed it. Probably says a lot about how dull I am!

              Today it is easy to have bots do all kinds of interactive shit. So once again I'm looking into it. For a site like this, where we have so many odd subjects and perspectives, I think we can support a minimum of 200 unique bots and have them emulate individual users complete with profile information and an array of response vectors. Of course it could be done with a thousand bots, but conversations would become like the patterns of Starlings in the air.

              Then I caught Daffy wankin!
