    I keep being curious about this every time I see it on the main index page. I know I was a member here at the time, but I can't remember that far back on FoRT. Does anyone remember what was going on that there were so many users online at the same time that evening?

    I think it was a Big Brother endurance competition...maybe. My memory isn't great but those competitions seem to draw a lot of traffic.

    You're right, lil, that was the night of that final HoH comp with Boogie, Erika, and Janelle. It was supposed to last hours but Boogie jumped down and Janelle let go by accident. Sad how I remember that night.

    Actually, I've always thought it had something to do with the Bachelor. Recently, the mods have closed down the site to non-members whenever a big Bachelor episode came along. I think they took this day into account when they decided to do this.

    I agree with lil and way. I'm almost positive it was during the Big Brother endurance challenge.
    Wake up and be awesome

    You guys are probably right, but I do remember an announcement John made about how there was heavy traffic during big Bachelor episodes.

    The site has had a tendency to "crash" at about 38 min into The Bachelor/ette episodes. And, it has been limited to members only during the Finale.

    You all made me curious, so I looked up old TV listings for June 30, 2008 - which was the date of the last record number of users at 4,145 - and that was indeed the date of a two-hour Bachelorette episode.
