Number of views.

in Feedback edited January 2014
I think it would be a great idea to be able to see the number of views for each thread. If you look at ARS you will often see a thread with a hugh number of views but with few posts. I think that that is interesting as it shows exactly which items are causing the most interest.

    They'll probably have this if they can ever switch to vB, but I'm not sure if the version of UBB they use has this function...

    Though I vaguely remember MacNN forums always having this...

    So it probably does.

    Good idea. That's a pretty good feature to have.

    UBB.classic (at least, the version we have) does not keep track of this sort of thing.

    OpenTopic (the software Ars uses) does.

    vBulletin (the software we will switch to) also supports this feature and I have already written it into the new templates.

    Ah, that's too bad.

    When you guys switch will all the moved threads default to 0 views or something else? Might look odd for a while...
