Myself and Flux have been looking into this since we noticed it Saturday night. As a pointer to the possible problem we were experimenting just now, and I was able to get the counter to increase by 1 just switching IPs but on the same account. If it's not decrementing the count when a user disconnects, its essentially acting as a Unique IP counter.

Can anyone else confirm?

No, can't confirm because I don't know how to switch IP but I sure will upvoat you for the good troubleshooting work. : )

I can confirm, I tried with a US proxy and a Romanian proxy and after a short update period it went up to 119 people from 117.

Hey guys

I have looked at the sessiontracker code, and it appears there is no implementation of removing sessions after they're added.

The 'users here now' appears to be the total unique sessions to have visited the subverse ever. I will investigate and look at where and when we should remove a session.

Let me know if anyone else is working on this currently.

GREAT WORK! I was about to post a screen shot of the numbers in /v/news today because now the "users here" number is well over subscribers.

Although, I thought I used to see my numbers fluctuate in my subverses until just last week. You know, 9 here - now 5 - now 1.

I have had a look at the git repo where there is an issue tracker -- > https://github.com/voat/voat/issues/376 looks like someone has attempted to fix this by implementing another solution. Doesn't really seem like its working though does it.

I just assumed they were fuzzing the numbers now, like Reddit does.
