Most people online was 621 on June 21, 2005--can it be broken?

Was that set-up? Maybe we should set a day and time that we all log on and beat that record?! What do you think?

Yeah it was probably shortly after the site started when there were lots of...what do they call em'? Spiders? The google, yahoo, and other search engine bots that crawl through sites caching the pages and putting it in the search engine.

A small forum I was part of the set-up of had like 120 people on for most of the first week (no way that many guests were actually there).

That date was several years after TCS was started so probably not but before I was a member so not sure if it was planned, but bots do randomly reappear by the mass to recache pages so you might still be right!

I can't think of a 'TCS' date, maybe Anne could say when she started the forum?

The first ever post I can find is 28th October 2000, 04:02 PM by Anne

I think we should get on on the date that TCS first launched. That would be really neat! Keep us updated... maybe we should PM Anne and ask her about it...

That sounds like a great idea

I dont think that it was "set up" as you say,I think it more likely that was the "hey day" so to speak Google..etc.. has a way of reducing the rankings of a site if there are a lot of spam registrations,also if the search engines receive complaints about a site not being what it advertises itself to be,then that will affect its rankings to

It could have been, not so much set up, as a day a contest or something finished. The userlist will also be fairly long if there are a lot of guests on, maybe with a food recall or similar, people looking for information, or if lots of people on happened to be AOL users with proxies following them making them look like 5 members instead of one.

I don't think it was spam registrations as much as guests.

post #12 of 17
I think we are still waiting to decide on a date that means something to TCS

Hmmm..maybe a mod can answer this, but wouldn't it be really slow? Like the more people that is on TCS at once, the connection slower it is?

If there was that many people on back then, and TCS upgraded to better servers more recently, my guess would be it would be slower but shouldn't crash the system
