Awesome! I had kind of been hoping that would come about eventually. :-)

I wanted to make sure I could do it without causing the site to get slower :)

Doesn't seem to be causing any problems on my end. Also don't mind me. I have this terrible habit of actually being honest unrelated gripes occasionally come up when you ask about gripes or mention improvements. I'm focused on what I want and stuff I don't want isn't mentioned. Also seriously go read manna the part of me that is patient left the building and the part of me that wants to choke people is here.

I really think it does not work right and is a waste of time. I just commented on a post with many comments and 2 views, which did not change after I commented. I just did a post that showed a dozen views because I kept correcting and updating the post. Not sure what it accomplishes other than showing how little people look at each others posts, which is kind of depressing. It is better to think people are reading our hard work than having proof they are not. Too much of that kind of proof will probably cause me to go elsewhere. What is the use of writing to no audience? Just sayin.

reckoner said about 2 years ago ...

I'm going to fix the problem with it counting one person viewing the page multiple times.

As for the rest, you have to up your game ;) Some of us get a lot of views, see this post of mine for an example.

sean_renaud said about 2 years ago ...

Really? 75 people have viewed that since the update. I'm tempted to wander into my dick persona here.

Anyhow view count is a nice thing to have. I just wish there was a way to separate conversations from views. Also in a world where Sports isn't a category MMA sure a shit ain't. :-P

reckoner said about 2 years ago ...

I'll add sports. Yes, that post gets the most views. Ranking in google is the way to get a lot of views. Try to think of things people search for and make that the title :)

This post has been viewed 5907 times, and yet I've been here for a few years and have, at tonight's count, only 5 followed users. It varies from time to time (older posts have multiple views) but it still confuses the hell out of me. One of life's mysteries, I guess.

reckoner said 5 months ago ...

It's confusing :(. The number next to followed users is the number of new posts from the users you follow since the last time you clicked on that link.

wombat said 5 months ago ...

Oh! Then I hope more people from my "followed users" will keep posting! Or else, I should be "clicking onto" more posts?

reckoner said 5 months ago ...

I need to redo the way it works to make it less confusing.

sean_renaud said 5 months ago ...

I never found that confusing. It counts the number of views which is at least one view for each person who's posted everytime they've posted and sometimes we don't respond to a particular message.

I think I have a really good first step that will keep the homepage exactly as it is now and put the new stuff off on a new part of the site. It'll likely be a few weeks before I get it working, we'll see how it goes once I get it up. Like I said, the read the rest
