I see a difference in the Board Statistics that are seen on the bottom of the page loaded from this URL ...

http://www.msfn.org/board/

I just happened to have a couple of saved versions of that page from December and somehow the board has lost some numbers!

Perhaps the software upgrade purged some records? Or maybe the New Year is involved and the stats reset each year? Strange!

EDIT: found another earlier copy of the page

I believe there MIGHT have been a "Spambot" purge. I also checked about the "outage" and found that it MIGHT have had something (the outage) to do with "Disk Full" or something.

FWIW, I had noted that "Record" several days ago (before the "down" period).

Hmm... maybe the SQL DB got "reorg'ed" and/or "cleaned up" to "fix" some busted stuff (the "other" error that occurred).

Okay, I found and added some statistics from the Wayback Machine.

NOTE: It does NOT appear to have been reset at previous year changes.

PS: also turned up this old logo! Hope it embeds ...

Spoiler

Rats, the board software won't display the Wayback Machine compund URL. But the link above will open fine in a browser tab.

EDIT: typos and stuff

All the spammers accounts got deleted. Those users and posts stop being counted in those numbers. But some of those posts still exist. Here is a thread created by a spammer who got deleted:

That's quite a purge, larger than anything I ever saw. Looks like at least 6,000 accounts and 8,000 posts!

One thing though, that Online At Once Record shouldn't be related to it, right?

I think the post difference is due to the "trash being emptied" when Xper came in to fix that spam issue. I'm not sure how the "online at once record" works with the forum internals. Anyways, I think those records really don't mean anything anymore. They used to be some cool stat, but most forums' records now show a period of spamming or some DoS attack. For example, the online at once record at reboot.pro is from one of those types of attacks.
