My newest user have 2071 id, so why in WHO IS ONLINE I have Total members 1,240, in memberlist.php I have 1724 users and in database I have 2067 rows and how can I fix it? I tried to use Resynchronise statistics, but that doesn't do anything. Thank you for help.

I'm using phpbb 3.1.10 and I don't know if that's important, but I converted my forum to phpbb 3.1 from phpbb 2.

Anyone who registers, whether they are real or a spambot with get a new ID so if you have ever deleted any accounts, the total number keeps going up but the total number in the database will go down.

Also, phpBB2 used to count everyone as a member whether they had activated their account or not. phpBB 3.0 onwards only counted those who activated.

That's why you have discrepancies. I don't think there's an easy way to sync them. You're probably the only person who has noticed.

Bots also use user_ids, but are not counted in total users. Stop worrying about it. It means nothing.
