MOST USERS ONLINE FOR JULY 2022: 149
July was a busy month. Lots of visitors and lots of spam account requests! There may have been some genuine people mixed in there, but it's impossible to figure out which requests are from real people and which ones are from bots and spammers unless people follow the special directions which have been provided.

The highest number of people online at the same time was pretty modest, but the number of spam account requests was extremely high. It just never stops!

MOST USERS ONLINE FOR SEPTEMBER 2022: 121
There were also over 6000 account requests. It is assumed that they were all spam unless there were some accounts which were activated, which I think there may have been three during the month.

MOST USERS ONLINE FOR OCTOBER 2022: 97
There were close to 8000 account requests this last month. All indications is that they were entirely spam account requests. There could have been someone in there who didn't realize that there's an extra step involved in getting an account request approved, but there's no way for the board administrators to know unless we know what to look for.

6000 Spam Account Requests So Far This Month
Although the number of people looking at the forum at the same time is currently only 111, the number of account requests is way up. This is the busiest month I'm aware of since I began assisting with the management of this message board!

OVER 10,000 SPAM REQUESTS THIS MONTH!
Add another 4500 to the previous 6000 and that's over 10K for the month of November. Whether these are people working in sweatshop type environments or just bots is impossible to determine, but that's a lot of spam account requests!

MOST USERS ONLINE FOR NOVEMBER 2022: 111
Additionally I just deleted another 1000 spam account requests bringing that total up to 11,000 spam account requests for the month of November. Mixed in there could have been a few legitimate account requests, but there's no way to verify that unless people follow ALL of the directions.
