    Default Question for those that held a PD account in 2007...

    Whenever I sign in, I usually see this tidbit of info after it lists how many people are currently online:

    "Most users ever online was 1,892, 05-31-2007 at 06:45 PM."

    I was just curious - for those who had an account then, does anyone know why so many users were online? This is like 9 times the amount of people that are on right now. This was the same day when Jim O'Brien was announced as head coach. This was at 6:45, so it was before a game, I'm assuming. I just always wonder - nearly every time that I sign in and see this - what made so many people visit this page at that one particular point in time...nearly 2,000 is so many compared to the amount that visit now. Something had to have happened. All I can think of is JOB.

    Any theories or thoughts would be appreciated, I'm just a curios cat ;-) (perverted old man winky face)

    It was probably a huge protest.

    That's probably about the time a lot of folks got home from work and turned their computer on.

    I mean, they probably do that every day as well. So you're saying that people heard about JOB being hired as head coach, and just couldn't wait to post the minute they got home? Interesting. So a combination of when people got off of work, and when they hit the power button on their CPU; interesting. Also interesting everybody that works 9-5 powers their home CPU off before work instead of just leaving it on.

    I dont remember being one of those 1,892, but it was the day that he who shall not be mentioned was hired. There was no game that night, the Pacers had already gone fishing for the summer.

    I think there was a time when the stats included guests along with people who were signed in, and that might have even included Google bots and things like that.

    Whenever something big happened though like hiring a new coach or a trade it would cause the board to fill up with the more casual users, I would think the brawl would have been the day we had the most people in here.

    I'm guessing the for real busiest times had to be during one of the drafts. We had a live chat deal at one point that would crash because we had so many people. Just guessing, though.

    I remember live-game thread and drafts, the app never really worked, so we stayed with the threads.
