    maybe I'm missing it somewhere, but a "who's online" footer would be nice. I don't know if there is 2,000 active online members or just myself...lol

    yes it does matter. as a forum owner myself, I like to see how much action a forum is getting. If there is only 10 people online, i'm logging out, because response time will be next to nil. if there is 300 people online then there will be more action. As a potential vendor, I would also like to know these stats, as well as, how many members the site has. I'm not going to pay advertising fees if its a low-traffic site. Who said anything about being no1? not to mention there are 100's of vendors here, making it hard to stand out. So, proxygo, yes it does matter.

    Well if your question is 2000, then the answer is YES: at any given moment on BHW there are likely many times over 2000 active users.

    I'm not aware of a display that shows you the number online but if you look in the Members tab on the menu above, it'll show you information on current visitors and recent activity - this may help?

    here you find useful information independent of how many are online at the same moment.

    Well it doesn't seem to bother anyone else, if you feel you can't grace us with your presence then so be it, I doubt very much if you'll be missed

    As a potential vender you should have worked out if you'd get ROI before even opening an account on the site.

    Cant find it now but there over 750k registered members, all forum sections are always active. seeing who is and isnt online isnt really needed.

    start a tread and most of the time it gets a response within 30mins with relevant input

    Ty Apricot. It does help. There are currently around 700 users online. To everyone else who replied with negative tone.. you're clueless and I feel sorry for you.

    Ty, but that 4k is mostly guests and bots..who can't post or buy...u can't go by that. U gotta click members tab. So 700 is more accurate. ty for the help. The staff seems to be a solid bunch. Good job to the forum owner.

    Guests can buy. Most bsts have a link to PayPal etc..... you don't need to be a member to buy from the sellers in nearly all cases

    I was a guest for a long time

    fyi there is a plugin/widget that allows forum owners to "inflate" those numbers, creating fiat numbers. I'm not saying BHW does at all. but crawlers are considered bots to bulletin/forum sites. One would think members of this site would be privy to these facts being 1/4 of this site promotes fake/outdated/matured profile pages for social media sites to generate traffic to their landing pages and earning money.
