1 million requests since Omnimaga re-opening
« on: July 29, 2009, 11:17:07 pm »
This weekend, Omnimaga has reached a new milestone. Since Omnimaga re-opened on August 25th, 2008, we have broken the one million requests mark. Currently we are at 1017973 and 742844 of that is in 2009. Counting only forum pages, they have been viewed a total of 808356 times so far since September. As for now, the most viewed forum topic is Nyaar RPG progress thread with 8857 views, followed by Calc84maniac Super Mario progress topic and Pokémon Purple. Not too far behind these 3, the Gameboy emulator for the TI-83+SE and the Programming Competition topics are rising at a rapid rate.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

True. I think it's because it had the most posts for a long while and also people are probably curious about what's a "Nyaar" :P

It's quite cool, though, as project, plus it always seemed to run pretty fast compared to a lot of stuff I saw. I wish he would get back motivation to continue it. But yeah I was still surprised at the view count, considering generally on game-oriented forums, what gets the highest traffic is stuff with popular commercial video game names on it. As proof, see Zelda download count in this image, despite the large amount of ASCII/homescreen graphics in the screenshots:

Congrats on the new milestone set by teh community. Or sorta. Does the count include or exclude bots such as those put out by Google to scan teh forums? If excluding, that's pretty amazing. If including, I'd want to know how many times a day these things scan the forums.

I think it would be pretty interesting if there was a breakdown on *who* was the largest contributers to this new milestone.

it's including bots. Unfortunately, there's no way to exclude them, as most bots uses proxies and dynamic IPs

So far it looks like Simplethinker has been the largest contributor, according to the most online time, but this could also be hits from external websites or guests downloading songs from external music players

Sorry. I had to say it.
