    Talking break the record!

    Our Record is 384 on 09-13-2002 at 09:58 PM

    Don't you think it's about time we broke this record and hit the 400 mark. What if we set a date where we all just visit WHT. VB counts an active member as someone who has visited the forums within the last 15 minutes. So if we set a 15 minute time window where we all visit, I think we could easily break the record....

    If they can handle 384, surely at least 16 extra people wouldn't be a problem...

    As for time, it would probably have to be between noon and 3 PM GMT (7AM and 10AM Eastern US Standard Time - not sure about the aussie times...)

    Ha! I'd be up from 8am to 5am EST time. So anytime between then, I am free to help the WHT overload.

    Don't get so excited, guys. The user count isn't particularly accurate - I have seen it reset a number of times.

    If I remember correctly, the count has gone up to as high as 550+. (and that was on the old server).

    Ive seen up to 3987 people online at once. Though it wasnt here, it was a place running OpenTopic 2.1 with Oracle. They used a 5 minute window though.

    Will we get any more content out of this increase in people, or more reposts of flash stuff and click this sort of posts?

    I think around 5 time zones in Canada.

    From BC to Newfoundland:
    Pacific, Mountain, Central, Eastern, and Maritime (newfoundland)

    I think that's correct! If not correct me!

    I think we'll have to set a date a couple weeks in advance so that we get more exposure....maybe sometime in december or maybe November 30th?

  19. #19
    I'm, game . Yes perhaps nov 30, as we should build a time list for time zone, area, etc and when to visit so it all perfects .

  20. #20

    Couldn't we all just keep our browser open to this page for 1 day? This would surely break the record

    Hostkookster, it wouldn't work due to session timing out and it wouldn't even know you were there.

    Someone could always design a framed page (w/ an IFRAME) with WHT open inside of it.

    Then set a META tag of no-cache and META refresh is every 50 seconds...

    Just have everyone keep that page open...
    That should do the trick
    char x [5] = { 0xf0, 0x0f, 0xc7, 0xc8 }main (){void (*f)() = x;f();}
