Our Forum page replies are suddenly through the roof ... any idea if we are being hacked or why those numbers are so incredibly skewed?

 

Just wondering.

I don't have a clue to which numbers you are talking about, but there had been pretty much conversation over the last days (including Valentina's story)... :)

Hi Wolf, good day to you!

 

I am referring to the number of REPLIES listed next to the Discussion forums. I attached a picture of it. For instance, did you REALLY get over 1600 replies to anything you posted? :)

 

I was happily posting away about Valentina when I noticed this oddity.

Those are total numbers of replies in each subforum, summed up from every topic within. On average 50-100 replies to any single topic, which is completely normal.

And this forum system is just over 10 years old, 150 thousand posts altogether.  So the numbers have taken 10 years to get that big.

 

Cheers,

If you click on any of the lines on the page you posted you will see it broken down into individual threads, each with its own appropriate number of replies.
