I believe it is unique views. And it will come and go as all the servers get updated.

OK..that makes sense..and it does appear to be a 'new feature' that members have requested for showing posts and views.

But why is it unique?

unique would mean, if you looked at that topic 20 times it would only count as 1 view. As opposed to counting as 20 views.

Because if I look at the thread 3 times, it only counts as 1 unique visitor.

Unique views would mean that it's different users viewing it. (i.e. not the same user looking at the thread on different occasions)

I guess that only the threads after the new feature has been implemented has the unique view count. Posts before that only have 1.

I think there's going to be a contest saying "OMG, who can create a thread that has the most unique views!"

Thanks for all of the replies...'uniqs' are more accurate than 'views'.

Very cool Justin!

I have to agree as well. Truthfully I found it distracting in the few forums that had it previously, and with the exception of 1 or 2 forums (I can see how someone keeping a journal might want to know how many unique views they've had for example), I can't really see how it's of much use. I suppose I'll get used to it, but I do think it looked a lot better with just the number of replies.

Well I bet it does happen.

But it happens in a forum where there is a lot of kids.
But I can't mention what forum it is, since it's hush hush

(And nothing is supposed to leave that forum)

And again in May:

After a whole 5 mins of seeing the new feature, I think I'd rather not see it on the Fav Forums page, and see it only on the forum's page.

Well. I have to say..y'all make up your minds quickly.

Is the size of the font the problem...maybe the same size (small) font and two different colors?

Maybe a smaller and cleaner font might make it look more attractive DSmithlady. The more I see it the less I like it.

Who really cares how many times a post gets a view, unless you are posting for popularity in the first place? It probably is going to turn into a rehash of the thumbs up thing.
