Has anybody noticed how our "guest" count has been higher lately? Very Happy

All this new activity on the board has been attracting larger numbers of All Sci-Fi's Silent Fan Club — like, some of the 154 members who don't log in because they're just enjoying the work of the "active members", along with other folks who've never actually registered.

The screenshot below was made today at 5:00 pm.

The Classic Horror Film Board has 11,237 members — but they only had 28 guests at 5:00 pm!

Let's keep these adoring fans entertained, guys! We owe it to our public. Cool

Well, gosh, THIS is weird! Shocked

We only had 26 guests today when I started a post in the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde thread.

Disappointing . . .

And yet, twenty minutes later — after I'd submitted my post — I checked again and found this! Cool




Good lord, what could have caused this sudden stampede of guests to All Sci-Fi? Confused

Well, maybe this is the reason.

I discovered that there are apps like TraceMyIP that provide an "online visitor monitoring service" which scans websites 24x7 for online visitor activity . . . and instantly notifies website owners!

So, maybe the folks in All Sci-Fi's Silent Fan Club are somehow getting alerts each time their favorite message boards get something new.

A few hours later the guest count had dropped back to 56. So, I conducted an experiment.

I added four new posts to Threads about Imaginary Sequels & Alternate Plotlines and then checked the quests count again.

It was hack up to 92! Mr. Green

Guys, if you're discouraged by the low number of replies you're getting with your posts, take heart! They ARE being read and enjoyed by dozens of people who rush to All Sci-Fi the minute you submit them. Very Happy

So, get busy, guys! Your fans are waiting!

This evening, after enjoying a record-breaking number of new posts on All Sci-Fi, I checked our"guest count" at the bottom of the main index before retiring for the night.

I was delighted to find that it was a record-breaking day for those as well — with 99 guests!

I'm hoping that tomorrow our members will continue to pump new energy into All Sci-Fi and help us break the 100 mark! Very Happy
