Hey BC,

 

Bug:

Every time i open a topic again or i reload the page it make it count as view.

Lets say If i reload page 100 times it will count 100 views of a topic.

That's a big bug for accurate information.

 

Suggestion

You can count one view for a member for a day or  4 hours.That will eliminate inaccuracy  and misusing.

 

Please fix it.

 

Thank You

What about unregistered members who view? It's still a view? How many people reload a page 100 times?

We will look into it, but I can't give you any timeframe as to whether we can do much.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.

Then detect View by using IP Address.

 

 

How many people reload a page 100 times?

 

Just giving example  but people do reload pages and change from one page to second page.

Even if we go from one page to another page of topic then again it counts.

Atleast You can fix that not to count view for every page of a topic.

If a topic have 5 pages and if we go through every page then it counts.

Page views are not used in any rating system, except that it can give a global idea how popular a topic is (a few views more or less are irrelevant, I'm talking about almost no views, to a few hundred, to a few thousand).

For that reason treating this as a bug is a bit pointless. :)

Hehe..your right. Thought I had that setting disabled. Used to be the other way.

Regardless, this is just the way the forum software works. Nothing we can do to change it.
