Wondering why we're getting Guests from so many countries?

Is this legitimate or are we being hacked??

May be it is me ! Since I use TOR and therefore I sign in through different countries which is not under my control.

You could see if the times you check-in coincide?

It is very difficult , since this Forum is the HomePage of my Firefox which I always open by TOR.

What if you go directly to "List All User" as soon as you open FF?  See what's there?

This is interesting, but no one can tell for sure. I suspect it is an ISP routing issue. If it was a bot issue, the site would probably be flooded with spam messages. Just a guess, but it seems harmless enough, for now.

Thanks, guys!

Barney

Hi Barney
Good to see you here again .
I guess The name of this forum " The Members Forum " somehow attracts many users searching forums.
