Is it normal for this mod to inflate the number of guests on your page? I highly doubt 50-70 guests are actually browing my chatbox archive.

Take a look...

http://www.digitalsportscene.com/forum/forum.php

I highly doubt these are legitimate guests. Has this happened to anyone else? 50+ guests viewing chatbox archive?

confirmed, 3.1.3 has the same issues, perhaps the wrong file was uploaded.

First 'black' is your style's default color, and now CB's default.

No, it's correct file.

Ensure CB's templates are not marked red in template list.
If yes, revert them.

Screenshot?
