Why so much traffic all of a sudden?

I noticed in our forum stats that the most users ever online was early in the morning yesterday, and that there were something like 230 of them on at one time. How is that possible? We typically have, at most, no more than 5 or 6 people on here (guests included) at any one time, and a dozen people would be considered high. What in the world would just suddenly make 230 people appear on here at the crack of dawn?

Hi, I believe this was essentially bots, as my statistics tracker didn't record so many visits (as it did last time we were flooded by stumbleupon's traffic). However the website's traffic keeps growing (slowly but surely) as we reached our first 1,000 members today. I will give more accurate statistics very soon, and more precisely on Nov. 14th, when the website will celebrate its first anniversary !

More interesting to know is the number of unique daily visitors in relation the active forum members.

I have a question: Isn't it November 11th, not the 14th, since that was the date when julien joined in the forum?

The date is actually November 11th, not 14th; just to make sure everyone knows.
