I'm pretty sure there were never 13 factorial people on this forum.

That's a display issue. The actual number is 135. I believe it was a ton of bots.
I can't fix that, sorry. It's unique to the device you're using; on a normal computer it should show up just fine.

Re: Error in "most online ever"

Speaking of the bots, I believe you making this site your sig, resulting in it showing up in every one of your post allowing for the spiders on Dashnet to find your forum. These spiders created your bot problem. Maybe adding a robot.txt file to the index page may deter spiders from posting here, I know it deters some spiders.
[I assume you're familiar with all this, considering you run part of a server, but if you want help, details, or clarifying, I'd be glad to.]

The bot attack isn't anything new; those show up fairly regularly and are easy to delete. But if you can find ways to help slow them down that would be great.

Re: Error in "most online ever"

Here's the most basic, easy protection.
Don't put a large amount of hyperlinks to your site on other sites.
A couple may be acceptable, but don't go too crazy.
Non-hyperlinks, just site web adresses can deter some spiders.

Usually I put links to it in my signature, although that's not a habit I'd like to stop... :P
