I am just having a question in my self for a long time.

I am exploring the forum and its features but every time I click my own general statistics, it always says user stats are disabled.

I cannot keep this, I feel the need to ask...

Would there be any concrete reason why?

Any comments will be accepted but once I've gathered the answer why, I'll immediately lock this thread.

My past will be my strength.

It's somewhat one the cause of the downtime of the forum way back as it gives the forum much work by displaying those stats.

I might've figured it out. A bunch of things are currently disabled; I'll work on safely enabling them in the coming days.

When you want to view the stats page, a lot of data from the forum's database needs to be read. And if a lot of people tries to view the stats page at the same time(or doing this in purpose for malicious reasons), the forum may slow down and have some downtime.

I don't remember what user stats look like but I think your profile in bpip.org is a good alternative if you want a quick snap on some of your stats like who you send merits the most and who are your top merit fans (merit senders), and your trust score. Here is a your profile link in bpip.org, hope this helps ease up some anxiety you are feeling right now.

I don't think any formal explanation was given to why they have still remained disabled almost 2 years later but it was definitely disabled because of the DDOS attacks that the forum was getting so I assume that the attacks were exploiting this feature of the forum. Now that we have move to cloudflare it should reduce that load though.

It still costs a lot of power for the forum tho. But the good thing is that a ton of users started scraping the forum and posting analyses about everything in the forum, including some data which was never available for people to see (i.e BPIP). I think that already fits a huge part of what that page did.

This is how the page looked like in case you might have forgotten. It was so detailed and would help guide on one's posting habits, favorite boards to post in, times the user is most active etc


I remember those days, late 2017. The forum loading speed would be so slow.

They were detailed at the same time as being vague if that makes any sense since the removal of the statistics page we have seen many members of the forum step up and continue to post more informative data than that page ever shown. DmdrDmdr and loyce being the more known members to post these statistics and have gained a lot of merit from them. In a way disabling that page was a good thing because we got more in depth statistics from these members because of it.

I can't remember the forum being slow other than the times that it would be under attack from Ddos attacks. simple machine forums are not that hard to run with very low bandwidth and hardware compared to other more resource intensive forums.
