Hey Justin,

I'm pretty sure that this has been asked before, but I don't recall your response.

Why don't you list the number of times a post has been viewed in these forums?

Hey,

Mainly because this site gets quite a bit of hits... A view counter would be fairly meaningless.

You are aware that I mean a view counter for each individual thread right?

As far as being meaningless in that respect, I'm not so sure.

For example, I posted a question in the XP forum on the 15th. No one has answered it. I don't know if it hasn't been answered because no one knows the answer or if it hasn't been answered because no one (or not enough people) have even read it.

In this particular case, the problem I am having with my work PC has my corporate IT folks baffled. If I knew that e.g. 50 people have viewed it in the XP forum but no one has offered an answer, that would confirm that it's a tough problem. That would not be meaningless to me.

As Office forum moderator - and one of the few people that actually answer questions in that forum - I'm often curious as to how many other people read the threads - especially before they are answered. Again, that would not be meaningless to me.

Mavis007,

Nevermind! I should have had my coffee before responding.

So now I'm curious:

Justin, based on your answer in that thread, what type of "public information" are you trying to avoid?

Feel free to PM if you'd rather not respond "in public".

I'm not sure what you are trying to say.

What does the thread entitled "Page layout is Much Better now" have to do with a View Counter?

... if your're interested since my posting of the "source" page March 31 2010 the count has gone up by @ least another 2000 hits! (>> #6 <<)

"...What does the thread entitled..." ... I was just making a suggestion!
