more than 500 guests online?

Post by Claudius_ »

Hi all,
as you can see, in these days my forum at www.claudiorampini.com seems to have a lot of visits. Are they real, or what?

99% are guests.
Check the IP adress/user agents and if necessary block them.
We should embrace problems, without which there wouldn't be any solutions.

You might want to read Blocking aggressive Chinese crawlers/scrapers/bots - John Large. It solved the problem for my boards. Make sure you read through the comments, there are updates to the recommended rules as new user-agent strings are detected.

If you are fairly website skilled (actually takes no skill) , then consider using the CIDRAM scrip linked in my signature below and/or CloudFlare and block China, etc. If you have Chinese users, then JS challenge the country in CloudFlare. You can also use Google's Recaptcha API in CIDRAM.

I feel like a broken record every time I mention this, but I just have to because it will help immensely.
