    2:30am, is there really over 900 people on the forum now?
    Okay, I admit that this probably not the best state to be posting topics, but right now ABW says that there are over 900 people in the forum. Really...do most of you just leave your computer on with ABW in the browswer.

    I'm claiming shanigans. Come on...I'm looking for over 900 people to chat right now, let's see if it happens.

    From now until 9am, if 900 different people post in on this topic, I'll give each and everyone a present. Don't worry ladies, it won't people Playboy "smut", it will be something cool like tshirts. Let's see how many unregistered people can actually register.

    Kinda odd. Remember that includes spambots, searchbots, etc.

    But still, tis a big number. Oh and even if it's 2:30AM, it's gonna be a different time somewhere else...

    What are you doing on a forum at that time?

    Once someone looks at the forums, it says they're "here" for something like 6 hours. Could even be more. And judging by that figure, even if you log out, you still show as a "guest" for quite some time...

    There are more than 100 sub forums in this forum. I only regularly visit commission junction forum. I rarely visit this forum. There will be many other members like me. So you should not expect 900 posts

    But just in case you get 800 and some others, I'll toss mine in here to add to the count. It's early Saturday morning, but long after you were looking. I never log out, but I don't keep my browser open when I'm not around.

    Sue waves from Switzerland. It was 9.32 here when you made that post and I was wandering around in ABW ... just didn't see your post until now. I also normally only frequent a few of the forums.

    Cool
    I always figured the guest count included a high percentage of lurkers. It seems to go up when the schools are out, also.

    I totally believe there are that many people logged into ABW at 2:30 am EST. This forum is read internationally, making the EST timestamp irrelevant. And everywhere I go that I meet a talk to affiliates they tell me that they lurk over here whether they post or not (MANY do not post), this comes from both affiliates and merchants. It is 6:45 am PST at the moment, don't know if that falls in your "before 9 am" slot. If you understand affiliate marketing you will understand that many affiliates work at night, and 2:30 am is their lunchtime

    I think it has something to do with logging in and just closing the browser.

    Somebody contacted me that I am still reading a thread at 2am and I have been reading for quite some time. I left work at 6-7pm and definately shut down my PC.

    Oh man, so freakin' drunk last night. My apologies for my posts, I was in a snippy mood last night.

    For future reference, all alcohol induced posts can be deleted by moderators. Hopefully deleted as soon as I post them, so I don't come across as a total doofus on ABW. Maybe from 12am to 5am CST, there can be some mechanism that doesn't allow me to post.

    I need to lay off the sauce.

    I had the feeling that you was still celebrating last night.


    So you think that you're the only one that has made a post while ?

    Just don't .

    PWI or PWD, are a bad thing to do.


    This or this is better for this:

    Otherwise you might get too , and while you may feel like this while posting and , you may also feel like the next day.

    And those are the 12 step smilies to remember.

    According to the logs, 420 real people were on, rest were bots accounting for over 17K+ PVs generated at that hour.

    BTW, I'm looking into the other thread you started at the same time, and will get that resolved momentarily.
    Continued Success,
