There's a problem with this mod.

I am keeping my self away from this mod for eight years, nowadays it is unsupported and incompatible, and only code writers can play with it. 
Therefore any regular Joe counting on easy mod installation, he must stay away.

I’d suggest that a mod expressly designed to lie to users is probably better off not being resurrected anyway.

Been using this mod since 2.0.4   quick question if anyone cared to dabble

admin names are red, regualar users are gray for the most part with the exception of a few small user groups.  but i think this themes default is red ( back in black theme )  just restarting the old forum and trying to give the illusion of activity so the handfull that have come back after 10 years keep coming back while my social media ads runs to " hopefully " get new people to join


all that being said, is there anyway to change the color of the fake users names..  whether it be hard code, or something that adds an input box inthe admin would be great... because the fake names are showing up red, and i want gray   sorry for digging up bones here, but this mod is helping push the forum while im hitting the gas and trying to pop the proverbial clutch lol

Could use HTML inside input box but I had specifically removed use of HTML there to avoid any issue. Further, code will need little more than tweaking to make your thing work. However, if I happen to update it, I will do something about your request.

There's a problem with this mod. It only show a list of membername when at least 1 user is logged in. But when no one logged in, it show only a text (20 Guests, 4 Users) but no username. Anyone have idea what is the cause and how to fix this?
You actually found a bug.. will look into it.

Because your site is NOT getting the traffic that you are faking ...   that report is purposefully not factual while being represented as fact, which, in common parlance means,  it is a lie

There is nothing against the rules about this mod to not be allowed here. And there is nothing tacky about it either Mr Goody Two-shoes.

It can help new sites in boosting some activities or dead sites from coming back up. What is wrong with that?

If you are too moralistic to use it, let others use it then. Spare them the negativity and lecture.
