Default Most Online Users???

According to the stat line on the Winnipesaukee.com home page (online users section), the most users ever online was 2,570 on 01-19-2020 at 12:01 AM - just one month ago. I assume this refers to the total number of users at any one time.

Does that even make sense? Dead of winter? 12:01 in the morning? I realize viewers are in different time zones but I assume a big majority are in EST and I'm assuming the forum server is in EST as well (maybe a bad assumption). Regardless, what was so compelling on January 19 that resulted in this record? Just seems like an odd time during a presumably slow time of the year.

That was an unusual spike of activity at that time of day. I also noticed that the "most users online" record was broken a few other times in the week before that. Usually those spikes seem to be mostly caused by something of general interest on the site being linked to on social media, other forums or news sites.

Another factor is that at any point in time a percentage of those site visitors are search engine bots that constantly tunnel their way through the site indexing everything. Sometimes they are very active. The resulting search results do bring people from all over the world into our threads so I'm not complaining.

Real users broke the online record during the speed limit debate. At least I thought that was the record.

I recall the same story. But also remember something about a ford car at the bottom of the lake that drew a lot of interest by a car club or some collectors.
