    It's a shame that 95% of those users are simple visitors. :( anyway... ¡Que vivan los foros!

    (Sorry for dampening your enthusiasm :p.)

    Es que tengo varios nombres de usuario aquí e hice muchas preguntas y contesté muchísimas más para inflar las cifras.

    Lo confieso, fui yo. :)

    Naaa... ¡felicidades, WR!

    22 de septiembre, fecha memorable, pues, así como por el centenario de una de las principales universidades del mundo -de la que soy egresado, sí, sí, a mucho orgullo-... he nombrado a la Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, la U.N.A.M.

    (Digo, me encanta andar por acá, por si no se había notado)

    Most users ever online was 21,894, Yesterday at 05:10 PM.
    Impressive, indeed, but there's a mystery. On Feb. 16th 2011

    at 05.10 p.m., I was on a plane (no laptop), yet my name is on the list.... Is someone impersonating me?:mad: I didn't arrive home until about 07.00 p.m. and don't think I was on-line at all that evening.
    OK, the other 21,893 of you, check if you were there:D
    Seriously, whether I was or not, it's a great record. Many congrats and kudos to Mike, and everyone else.

    Hmm.

    How can you see you are on the list? The list you see now is the list of the currently active users, not the list of the users that were active at the time of the record.

    Aha...
    As the first line says "currently active users 17,032" and, then below
    "most users ever online was.........." and the list of names follows this, second, title, I asssumed that's what it referred to.
    Thanks.:)

    Y sin la sempiterna pregunta sobre las pasivas con 'se' y las diferencias entre 'hubiera/hubiese/habría'...

    O tal vez sería mejor que pudiéramos, de una vez, zanjar estos temitas en un hilo lapidario para que se detenga el sol a admirarnos. :D

    I have just seen that we have a new WR record, today at 17,00h, (5 p.m.) 24210!
    About time, too. It's been nearly a year since the last one!
    Congratulations!

    Have just seen yet another record, today 25th October, at 5.34 p.m.!

    He buscado, pero no he encontrado ningun hecho histórico tan digno de mención como la decapitación de Marie-Antoinette, que coincidiera con la fecha.
    (bueno, mi madre hubiera cumplido 94 años);)

    Most times I search on Google an expression in quotations, and even without them, to check something about its usage, the WR site shows up in the first or the first places of the results list; this should mean something. Funnily enough, I have come across some of them in which I had participated and didn't remember.

    Looking at the most "popular" sites on Internet, and looking at the kind of webs that grows like mushrooms on the web, one unfortunately must think this phenomenon could be the result of a massive typo mistake while typing WHORE REFERENCE. :p

    It's a bad joke, at least among people I know who attend to EOI in Spain (Official School of Languages) this site is a real reference and more and more used.
