Admin Czar: The board was stuck in maintenance mode, which I didn't active, and when I tried to log in the page hung on "Redirecting". Like 20 times over several hours. Yeah, right. I'm sure it's just a coincidence. B-| Jun 20, 2020 10:35:55 GMT -7

desertbikes: Bots. The old forum pph software can't distinguish real users from bots. This was one of the reasons I quite paying proboards for ads. On days you see high visitor #s, it's likely photo & key-word crawlers. Many Fedbots just now I assume. Jun 11, 2020 5:01:41 GMT -7
lurker: oh, yeah, and i've referred a few people to the site lately, likely didn't become members but visit as guests. Jun 8, 2020 7:16:02 GMT -7
lurker: i think there are a lot of people stuck at home, out of work etc who have nothing better to do than seek entertainment on the web. i expect suicides to jump too. :( Jun 8, 2020 7:14:03 GMT -7
desertbikes: 116 visitors. Hmm. Had 62 at bugdetairguns.com. Think that's a new high. Bots aren't supposed to count. Will check later to see if that's true. Google analytics is a way to weed them out.
