Occasionally I find the number of players online in a server is incorrect --
usually by one but one time it was off by four. For example: a server will
show that it is not full, but refreshing shows it is. It has happened many
times and I do not think that players are leaving/joining in the span that I
query the server and refresh it (the online players list stays constant).

    The number displayed is the number of users == clients,
    actually, and whether a server is full is determined by
    that. When a client with four players on it plays alone on
    a server, the user count should be 1, while the player list
    still should show all four.
    Does that explain what you see? Should the title of the
    column be clarified?

    Yes, I know that is what is displayed. However it is incorrect sometimes. See
    attached.

    Oh. No, I've never seen this. Any chance for a recording?

    I think the discussion went ahead on the forum, we found that players that are about to time out after some flawed metric are not included in the count, and corrected the count.
