Is The Royal Apple really that popular of a server or a fake?

Recommended Posts

I was surprised to see something with more than Sklotopolis, so I logged in, just to investigate.  Could not see any signs of teraforming, building or raise any players in any channels.  The 234 active player count sure seems fake.  Also, when you type /who, it seems that command is disabled (big surprise).

So there is still some hack that lets server admins show high player counts?  Didn't our devs fix this a while back, or was that a bug they put on hold?

How can you fix server code that is accessible for hacks in the first place?

if you sort list by 'players' the top like 4-5 are all fake numbers, including sklo, it has been that way for years and is unlikely to ever change.

something to keep in mind though is some servers have more than 1 map which is 'technically' another server on that voting list but some server admins will combine the total of all their maps, so like kangawu may say 24 but that is 24 between the 2 or 3 maps he has running and the vote thing will only show the players on each map seperately. So that may look like fake numbers but it is just a total overall on server and not really fake numbers.
