I almost have to wonder if that's a glitch. After 13 months, such a huge jump...and right now, 2 hours later, there's only 111 online, which is typical.

Hmmm... cherianchris, you haven't been "massaging" the system by any means, like, opening 150 browserwindows on the forum or something? Would be the first time someone cheated without getting points for that! ;-)

On a serious note: the stats seem to jump in times of service-outage, so it probably is a good sign if it is rather constant. For most people it either just works (no need to visit) or it is beyond hope (any sparsely wazed country) and they don't bother. Stats on the wiki would be more interesting. Do we know what % of wazers ever sees the wiki, once?

With all the log in issues we've been seeing, it is probably twice the number of true users -- me logged in plus an anonymous version of me when things get wacky.

Someone should let support know about these login issues.

I have yet to have a problem, with the exception that Tapatalk just made me log in for the first time since I installed it nearly a year ago.

For as long as the forums have been online, even that number is sad! I have run forum sites and had that many search engine bots online at one time. There should be thousands of users online at one time by now.

It could be because most users are perfectly satisfied with the first 2 or 3 opions on the support page? (nanorep, faq, guide, wiki?) They may try those first - and give up before they reach the forum. We just do not have the numbers.

These forums are 99% for editors and 1% for users...not necessarily by design, but that's about how the posts work out.

However, there still should be thousands logged in at any given time, just among the editors. It's sad and distressing that there are that many people who have been given AM permissions and even CM permissions that have never visited the forums. I'd be willing to be that there are 10,000 people just in the U.S. / Canada that have level 3 access or higher. If 9,900 of those haven't been to the forums, they're barely qualified to make a single edit.

Absolutely +1. And if each Editor spends time in the forum, the quality of maps would improve by leaps and bounds.

I somehow feel that the Forums do not get enough visibility in India. A majority of users download the client and stick to Waze in a Well Managed area. And if the Waze Map is poorly managed, Waze loses a user. But nowhere, is it said that the unhappy user will get an answer/solution to his problem 99% of the time in the Forums. It is only us, who have experienced it, who know and trust the vast amount of experience on this forum, who stick and attempt to help the community grow. One bonus candy opportunity for the first forum login ? Will it work ?
