PostPosted: Sat 31 Aug 2019, 05:35    Post subject:  A new record for forum users  

The attached screen shot of the bottom of the main Forum page (taken a few minutes ago) shows:

* the highest numbers of users on line at any one time has increased by 297 from the previous record of 686 on 31 Dec 2013.

* the numbers of users on line since yesterday exceeded 120,000 (latest edit - 140,000).

Who knows (or conjectures) what?

Perhaps that "newest user" is a clue? Caspar (Ghost) Web?

I think a lot of those are search engine spiders getting counted as a separate user for each hit because they don't let the board set the session cookie that it uses to identify guests.

We have 42231 registered users :: The newest registered user is Wendy Humphr(e)y

This quotation is (a) meaningless because:

(1) The current Memberlist shows the number of members as 27225. It was 27226 before Wendy Humphr(e)y was banned for advertising.

Of the 27225 (at least one was reported as deceased), some will have registered under more than one name and 9434 (35%) made < 2 posts.

(2) Only registered users who successfully complete the validation process become members and so are able to open threads or add posts.

So registered users are in no better position than other Forum visitors.

Further, (b) it's incorrect nonsense because:
“have” should read “have had” as demonstrated by Wendy.

Since 31st August 2019 - when the reported number of registered users in the opening post above was 40878 - that's an increase of 1353, but there have only been 461 new members reported in that period.

The table below displays details extracted from the Forum Memberlist.

Gmail have 43% of the email market yet Gmailers (among others) cannot validate – so in some 42 weeks there are 892 disappearances – perhaps Flash can advise how many of those have been banned, suspended or resigned – plus any additional facts to aid our understanding.

Addendum: 1st July,2020 - at close of play yesterday the figures were 27,228 and 42,265. That's an increase of 3 and 34 which is 9% successfully retained members and failures of 91%.

I think a more interesting figure would be the number of members that have actually contributed over the years.

And those that have consistently contributed. For those that have, THANK YOU! Even though I haven't been around much lately, I know who most of you are! Shocked

because the sendmail() function in PHP 5+ does not fully support https:, and this is the function that the forum uses to send it's mail. If the Gmail servers don't see the right info in the header it's dumped to a default address or just plain refused. My server has one....and if a mail ends up there unless I specifically look or configure it to do so I will not notice what is there. And the information that the email send failed, will land in a server log which no one ever looks at anymore and probably relies solely on a log rotation function to prevent the entire storage from being overrun by hundreds of gigabytes of old log entries.

This mail function might be able to be fixed using some PERL to help the PHP bu that would have to be coded and installed manually and customized. Meaning of course someone needs to be able to access the murga server.

The Apache 2.2 web server is also not helping the cause.

Very few people have been banned or have asked to have their account deleted. An insignificant number compared to the total number of members.

Apparently Yahoo mail accepts emails from this forum. Yahoo mail can be configured to forward emails on to Gmail. So if you have a Gmail account that doesn't seem to want to accept mail from this forum, maybe open a free Yahoo email account and see if it will accept mail from this forum. If it does, configure it to forward email to your Gmail address.

Had to use a old hotmail account to get in.
Really would love that the new forum started working.
