Er, that's all for now.

More traffic than ever before, for whatever reasons (the very informative and useful coronavirus thread?)

It's been overloading the server routinely lately...

Previous record shattered:

We could use more positive contributions and more interesting bumped topics, too. :)

The most curious aspect of our recent traffic boom is the distribution: although there is a consistent baseline of 200-400 "guest users" lurking about at all hours in recent weeks, there are never more than 50 of them here in General Discussion. Instead, you find 5-20 users sprinkled in every -- every -- subforum on the site.

The coronavirus thread is likely the reason. I only noticed the hit count on the Questioning Consciousness thread, with 1200 hits, but no responses since the last post.

Seems a little odd is all.

Ah, that explains trouble since Sunday in accessing board & threads with frequent "General Error SQL ERROR ... Too many connections...". Interesting, frustrating, but wish some new voices would join in.

Come to think of it, I had noticed this same thing happening during a previous spike in traffic. Some kind of half-assed phpBB SQL DDOS? Maybe a side effect of something else, like an app that is scraping phpBB sites in a different way?

I think that people posting here should take it upon themselves to bump more old topics. There are so many fun and mind-blowing (or tragic and heart-rending) topics going back years that have been forgotten because nobody has bumped them lately. It is easy to change the overall trend of General Discussion by just bringing threads that actually appeal to each of us back to the top. I am as guilty of neglecting to do this as anyone. My main reason for visiting lately has been to use the search function to look up names et cetera.

I found one that only had me in it:

viewtopic.php?f=12&t=1177

But every thread I checked prior to the above random thread had from 5 to 8 guests.
