Live Online Counter At A.net!

Tue Jan 15, 2002 5:15 am

Hi there,

About two hours ago I opened the main page here and saw a counter at the bottom of it saying something like "LIVE Online Counter". At that moment about 214 people were conected to airliners.net. Some seconds later, and now, this "feature" has disappeared.

I think its interesting to know how many guys are online at each moment and to check how the "traffic" is at different times and days.

Somebody else did see this?

Regards
DC8

It would be hard to have a counter that was accurate, since the web is inherently "stateless", and Airliners.net doesn't require you to "log in" like other sites.

It does leave cookies, but there is no notion of being "online"/"offline" -- eg, if you loaded the home page, and then left it overnight, does that count as you having been "connected" to airliners.net for that period?

Ryu2:

I agree with you, but I saw it today and I'm wondering if anybody else has...

Johan, pls confirm that this counter was in use and if you are considering it for the future.
