Most users ever online was 694 on 05-03-12 at 07:49.

I just noticed this now.


Did I miss something? Was there a reason that caused so many to be online at once? I didn't think the old *Most users online* from '05 (iirc) was very likely to ever change.

The previous record was from around when Doom 3 was released. I'm not sure what could have attracted so many people here last week.

I just noticed that too. I wonder why we got a new record for most users online this time?

Could they just be bots?

That's what I was thinking. Unless there's was some big Doom 4 news recently...but I suppose everyone here would already know about it before now if that were the case.

Maybe because 30 prostitutes were found to have HIV in Greece?

Pretty big draw, imho. So, likely this.

The more visitors the less likely UGO will shut this place down.

I don't think anyone here gives a fuck about Doom 4.

The day it happens, is there a "plan B" for the community?

Should this happen, I suggest we move to jeuxvideo.com. It's a quality website filled with intelligent individuals.

Maybe everyone just got tired of shutting down their browser after visiting like so many times before.

I think the ideal solution in that situation would be for the community to pitch in with donations to have a server run by member(s) of the community itself to keep it going.

Would UGO be likely to give any forewarning before pulling the plug?

This thread made me laugh pretty hard.

Would Bloodshedder or somebody have more data on this? Was it a bunch of one user? Do we know what threads they were viewing?

Maybe Dr. Betruger / Maledict paid a visit with some of his low life minions? Dunno man.

Maybe someone tried to crash it with too many users? I'm not gonna point fingers but I've been getting some weird vibes from certain people...
