The annons, are most likely users who are surfing HWA for info/help via various topics.
I believe those are folks who do not want to sign up, but surf for the info they require.
For the population around the world, this number is totally insignificant, but in comparison
for a site such as this, it's a fairly large number for any site to be surfed at any given time.

....I'm back, but only as a part-timer... :)

Each time when you refresh, that number only goes up, until certain point it falls back down. It feels pretty artificial to me. ;)

we should start creating topics that we think will bring in random people running google searches! I bet we can get that number into the 10 or 20K range!

I first registered with HWA about 5 years ago or something like that, when I first registred the latest topics in the forum we changing a fair bit with folks posting new answers or new topics, but nowdays I see folks dragging up topics from years ago and nothing really fresh, I just can't see 1411 folks (number of Anons at the moment) looking at this website and going Nah I aint gonan register.

Some of the Thread on the Latest Topics Page have been there for weeks.

Ive yet to see registered user go over 10 Users online in a Very Very long time.

its probably because HWA is just a forum... It suprises me that the site draws the traffic it does, there are no articles or reviews on new hardware, games, software... no press releases on upcoming products. Just all of us here posting random things day after day.

Plus, the site looks like it was designed 10 years ago ... oh wait. :angry:

Greasemonkey and Stylish have made it a lot nicer on MY end, at least ...
