Yeah, I've been getting these constantly all day today. I'll email Dave. And right now there's 1165 guests. 1:24 AM Eastern. So... yeah. Those 36 guests were just viewing this part of the forum, not the site as a whole.

I'm guessing that with the release of Madden 19 on the PC again it exposed the site to bots with users googling modding tools.

It's becoming an annoyance with the error messages but I guess we'll just have to weather the storm.

Hey,


Someone should put the site on cloudflare and turn on "I'm Under Attack"
this will mitigate the bot problem....

And this is what I predicted what happen. Now we just need to figure out how to stop it.

I'm looking at the current user count and it's down to 53; Might this be the end of the bot problem for now?

Has anyone seen any crazy numbers lately? All of this week I've seen around 50 users, right now 56 online.

What's the point of these Bing [Bot], Google [Bot], Google Adsense [Bot], Majestic-12 [Bot] being registered users?

Those are web crawlers that scan the site to add it to search results, and bots related to advertisements. They aren't actually registered users.
