I start the occasional topic here, and usually it jumps to 50-100 views pretty fast, which I found a bit thrilling in the beginning. But lately I've started to wonder, since the forums really aren't that active... what makes the view count increment? Is it only counting logged in users reading the topic, or will passerby spambots etc add to the view count?

unicorn member? is this google translate at work? Wink

speaking for myself i tend to read lots of post without replying, mainly due to lack of time... Rolling Eyes so it is not that no one is reading what is being written.

I think it was just a spam filter avoidance scheme by who(m?)ever hacked my account.

I often read but don't reply when I'm curious to see what others have responded to the OP, the OP being a question or topic I would like to know or know about myself. When my answer is "I don't know" I have nothing to contribute, so I read but don't reply.

You can open your own OP repeatedly, rack up the views and brag about how famous you are.

No, but I nuked that one too. :p

Some other one extolling what a great post this was, and ironically including spam in the sig. It came from the Philippines which we've seen enough spam from that there has been some judicious banning happening now. There's a class C network there seems intent on spamming forums. We can do without 253 addresses for now.
