655,007 members | 36 currently online !

a little one sided

Yeah i must admit i have noticed that number always seems to look a little low recently

I'll tell ya where I have gone when I'm not online - to work and to sleep... Next!

Not to be repeating myself. . but call of duty came out recently. .

I suppose that means playing a game is more important than doing homework.

Well its school time so some might not have time.

Its nearly always 30-65, the higher number being in the 10pm-5am period for me (GMT), which i guess is when India and the USA are awake?

The number now only represents "registered members". In the past non-registered users also added to this number (like google-crawlers etc).
The difference is this:
In the past the line meant "655,245 members. 2000 random connections are currently online"
Now the line means "655,245 members. 20 of these members are currently online"
So it's a bit less misleading information now :)

I agree. It "feels" much quiter than normal. Not so many questions get posted as normal. I miss my challenge to try and answer those questions.

mmmmmmm. Maybe holidays started earlier....

I agree because I used to solve questions like crazy in the php forum but now there are fewer questions that are not already solved by another member. I hope this doesn't spell the beginning of the end of daniweb. That would be very bad. :(

Hmm.. Maybe recession is a factor too. :)

I think the number of active users has always been fairly low, for example at the moment the only people I see regularly in the list are:


Most of the rest will ask their question, and never come back. Some may return a few more times, but very few actually stay.

And yep, call of duty's been released :icon_cheesygrin:

There's allot of games and toys being released right now for the holidays.

Me I'm busy playing the classic 1998, balls-to-the-wall, Lovecraftian horror/sci-fi game Half-Life; finished the end last evening after putting it aside for awhile, and the end in the other dimension/planet/whatever is just "fuuuuuuuuuuu.... 0.0 *mindblown*." So I have to play it again.

He may have joined some time ago, but given the post-rate, I'd say he hasn't actually been here for most of that time.
