Woltlab Burning Board does something sort of interesting and soft of odd and I'm wondering if anyone else has noticed that it's actually 2 sites in one. The population there is sort of hidden and there is actually more people and post than you originally think.
I noticed that the numbers were not exactly adding up. More to the point, they were adding up, but I wasn't seeing any new post. And then I started thinking, wait a minute, Woltlab is a German company, where is all the nice people from Germany (or at least who speak German)?
It turns out their language file actually divides their site. If you switch languages, suddenly post that were not there before are and the ones you were just looking at a moment ago, disappear.
While it this is cool, it does give the false illusion that nothing is happening, when in fact a lot more is going on than meets the eye. o_O
