    Thumbs up Login when Browsing Posts

    I find it sad that most of the time the number of active users in TG is in the single handful, yet there are many more "Guests".
    Present hit is 4 members to 745 guests.

    Yes if you login, we know who you are and possibly where - https://www.talkgraphics.com/online.php.
    So what?
    TG does not exploit any of this.

    We all want to know our Threads and Posts are being read and not just by Bots.
    It would also be useful if Xara staff lead by example, especially so Mods can nudge Xara to look at Bugs raised in the Dear Xara Forum and not rely on the subsequent excuse "Oh, were were busy on other things."

    Finally, if you are logged in, it takes no time to add to a Thread.
    We welcome discourse and questions, the whole purpose of the Forums.

    Do join in.
    We don't bite.
    Well, we do but tell us off otherwise we'll think we know everything.
    We need to understand how you use the Xara products and what is hard or even impossible for you. Someone else may have an answer.

    Thank you for reading.
    Enjoy the range of knowledge TG offers but think of contributing too even if you are just browsing when logged in.

    Down to 2 and 755 guests and one of us is a Bot!

    Lots. https://www.talkgraphics.com/online.php allows a click on the IP address and it is resolved, so 17.121.115.49 shows as 17-121-115-49.applebot.apple.com. Within its renage, Apple could have 65,000 scouring the web and probably many, many more.

    Login and beat the Bots.

    Yes but if I click the 'Search Bots' it only reports 15 Guests. If I select Guests it reports 643. If I select Members it reports 6.

    Are 643 Peeps viewing TG at that time?

    Surely that bot must be reporting wrong I believe we have many more members than 6, although many are not active.

    It would appear so.

    Me too, I wonder what if anything can be done to help bring TG back to its former glory, few participate in the Scribble challenges, few draw anything(including me) to show the capabilities of Xara.

    On some forums I think there is a way to show just active members. For example, ones that have logged in at least once within the last six or twelve months. That would give a more realistic idea of what’s going on.

    A similar question about forum participation came up in 2018.
