https://forum.hyperion-entertainment.com/viewforum.php?f=56
here, to have reached the 5-digit viewmark, so having had 10.000+ views and it is *THIS* very post. There are now 5 such entries in this forum. Welcome to the 5-digit+ view club. Congratulations to all involved!

Just to let you know that the forum is still 'thriving'!

Have a nice weekend.

Well, with exception of the 1st and the 7th post, nearly all other posts generate an average of 47 - 60 views per day. The seventh post generates 92 and the 1st post generates a whopping nearly 280 views per day from december 1, upto and including december 19.
Curious, to say the least.

@OldFart

Are you separating actual views from visits by bots?

Why spoil the fun? And should *I* be the one seperating those views? And why do these incredible figures only show up in the 'Documentation Wiki' and not so much in other parts of the site? Can a 'bot' be so smart as to figure out which threads to plough through and which ones not? It's makes as much sense as trying to sell roasted pig in Mecca during Ramadan.

You are the one making multiple threads about how awesomely alive the place is on the basis there are so many views. You don't think that you might want to understand those numbers better first?

There are way more bots these days than you might think, way more than the obvious search engine ones, many have sprang up since the advent of LLM. And there are several specialised ones that are extremely interested in code and documentation about code.

So, as for why a technical documentation wiki might be more indexed by a LLM bot that than a thread, well, I can't imagine.

A healthier metric for forum activity would be something like posts per day.

Well if you want a more on-topic expression of absurdity...

Or like, making new PPC hardware in 2023/24, that was designed in 2014, using an FPU that's incompatible with the standard that the OS and application have used forever.

here, to have reached the 6-digit viewmark, so having had 100.000+ views and it is *THIS* very post, which was first entered at October 19, 2023.
A new club, the 6-digit club has now been established!

The 5-digit now contains 13 members and a couple of clear prospects. Congratulations to all involved!

Just to let you know that the forum is very 'thriving'! (No Karlos, I do know it's dead! Dead as a stone.)

Have a nice (start of the) month of March.

Some 'bot' is feasting on the forum's content. It's not real traffic.
When I first started noticing this weird behaviour, end of November, 2023, there were only 5 of the 25 threads having exceeded the 10k-mark. Now, a mere 3 months later, there are only 5 left that have NOT (yet) exceeded said mark and in a few days time, I reckon there will only be 2 or 3 left.

At the end of november the very first thread on the forum had not even reached 1200 views, 1196 to be precise, while it is now reaching a whopping near 107k, a near 90-fold increase.
