I was wondering why in this forum there are so many unregistered users that are active, I can see every "thread section" in this forum has a lot of views that increase a lot day by day (except for the Random spam section).
Are most of these numbers fakes or bots? I've been in some other forums too but I've never seen such a great amount of unregistered "active" users.
I could bet that some of them will see this message too , but they will not reply Razz

it's because i don't require people to register to see posts/files so people don't have to login ever

and a lot of these guests are bots from search engines that are non-stop indexing the site and new posts/edited posts. (bing, google, yandex, fuckwuck, baidu, localnet, and 100 other search engines all at the same time with at least 4 different ip's each)

Ok but why do they keep indexing this site? I mean why do they need to check each thread constantly? I mean I've seen that this happens not in all sections (like random spam is avoided)...
It's just for a curiosity purpose , if there is something on the background I may stop this question here lol

Edit: nvm probably the random spam section is botted too

posts get edited/deleted over time, so they have to check periodically if the content is still the same.
And there is a lot of content to check

e.g from the last 100000 requests on this site this is the top 5:
Code:

ipcount-ip
   1248 157.55.39.167 (msnbot-157-55-39-167.search.msn.com: bingbot/2.0; +http://www.bing.com/bingbot.htm)
   1466 66.249.66.211 (crawl-66-249-66-211.googlebot.com: Googlebot/2.1; +http://www.google.com/bot.html)
   1653 157.55.39.173 ( msnbot-157-55-39-173.search.msn.com:  bingbot/2.0; +http://www.bing.com/bingbot.htm)
   2077 216.244.66.239 (no dns: http://www.opensiteexplorer.org/dotbot, [email protected])
   3664 78.46.174.55  (static.55.174.46.78.clients.your-server.de: MegaIndex.ru/2.0; +http://megaindex.com/crawler )


fun fact about the MSN bots, whenever they are active they open 6 to 7 pages a second

Yeah the number of registered users would be insane now if they were required to register.

There's no point to it though, most people when forced use fake emails/names and never visit again versus those who register out of their own will after liking what they see.

I remember maybe six or seven years ago that DB was hit by a lawsuit to remove all of the game section forums for trainers, mods, and other script tables. Those were the good days. Many other flash-based games and shit. Crazy this place is still around.
