Weird large amounts of guests viewing threads....

Recommended Posts

I can't remember who mentioned it but I've just spotted another thread with a stupidly high number of viewers, with 99.9% being "guests".

 

Did we ever figure out what it was? I know EB has been a bit clunky today. I did speculate it could be flooding due to infected computers (I'm sure there is a technical term for this) but really, have no idea otherwise why it would be happening. :huh:

It’s been clunky for days and days and some of the larger threads are having time out errors coming up (fluffy vents is one of them). I hadn’t reported it because I thought it was my internet but it’s turns out it isn’t.

 

It’s also been double posting a lot. Like a huge amount more then normal. (I think there are actually two threads for this).

Yeah and SMH site is fine and loading ok, so not a fairfax/nine issue....

 

 

ETA - and now the thread I noticed it in has noone viewing it. Again, weird.

I'd noticed that as well

This one currently has 25 guests?

It was me with 677 guests viewing the Australian Politics thread. No idea what happened there either.

It's more likely than not a glitch, especially given that the site in general has been buggy lately.

I'd hazard a guess it is bots.
