Default What happened on January 3, 2019?

According to the forum, that was when you had the most users online at once. And that was 25,023 users online!

Is that a glitch? Or was something going on (like news; a hot discussion topic; or a competition)?

Not a glitch per se, but there weren't that many real people either - we don't have close to that many members! It would have been bots, either friendly ones crawling the site to index it, or unfriendlies looking to exploit.

It's been a long time since we had a competition.
