My guess is a possible DDoS, since that seemed to happen last year at GLP.

I noticed those online numbers too.

Ive been told by Shep in the past that  its bots indexing pages for search engines.  That seems like a lot of bots to me. The forum is not slowing down so I don't think its an attack???

728 Maximum ever online, and I believe that was today.

Facebook?

Before its News?

Facebook checked! no major traffic from them

Before its News! no major traffic from them

And checked Twitter too.

Im guessing its one of the usual and very stupid referreral spam bots... they have no purpose at all. Ruining all my stats up :) they are like analytics trolls. but cant know for sure and its delayed today so i wont see stats till tomorrow.

Ok. Checked logs and urls visited. It was a bot, several infact. They were scraping for plugin logs used on wordpress websites, specifically for plugins that are out of date. Obviously not gunna work here. we dont use wordpress :D

I also did the justice of filing a report. for the attempt since he is hiding behind a cloudflare ip i also let them know.
