I think these are on the high side for both forums (just checked now a few minutes later and it's 18/26/134 which is probably more reflective of standard), but it's still pretty interesting to me that Lounge + EDF total viewers (obv some overlap, but I bet not a ton) can at times be around 50% of BBV4L.

The Lounge: Discussion+Review (28 viewing)
EDF (43 viewing)
BBV4Life (134 viewing)

On a related note, glancing down the list of forums it's surprising to me to see 2+2 have such a large number of forums with just a handful of viewers.

I keep track of BBV and it is probably average 250-300 viewing during the day.

Part of it is volume. I read EDF and BBV4L actually, but it just takes much longer to read one than the other, given the volume of topics. I assume that part of what you're seeing is just more people lingering as you do these snapshot views.

Dibs,

Right, that is part of what I find interesting about the numbers, specifically the ratios of viewers/posts.

Diablo,

How is this really surprising/interesting? I'd be surprised by anything else, really.

I wonder if the software double-counts users who are browsing in multiple tabs. For example, I'm super ADD and at the moment I have open in Firefox three 2+2 tabs, and several others for various sites because my focus shifts constantly. Right now I'm considered "in" this forum, but if I go to another tab and click a different forum, does it "uncount" me from this one?

Not a big deal but it could artificially inflate numbers by a little bit if it's counting people multiple times.

I see you've never been to SMP. Which should be renamed SIIMP by the way.
