#1 Number of viewers for every posting made.

Post by Ponbhairavi »

When a post is made the serial number of that post in that thread is automatically given. Similarly would it be possible to indicate on top of that post the number of views at which the post has started, sothat it can be seen how many people have seen it thereby know the interest of the public.statistically we may beable to tell what interest a post has created.
Of course the author himself can copy the nnumber from the general forum page and watch the progress. But all may not do it and the forum management will not be able to tell what interest a particular post has evoked and the statistical significance of any post made.
For example under critics and rasikas in the thread. P B multifaceted personality.....the latest post of mine has attracted
260 viewers (started at the beginning 24710.......present no is24970 ) even after making allowance for repeated views by the same person it is quite surprising.! !.

Yes it is possible, but these customizations get lost when the forum script is updated. We have done such changes before and every time the script gets updated, it breaks the code. Hence, the best option is to leave it as it is.

O.K fine. The number of viewers of my post above (32 viewers and no one to reiterate ) shows thatit is of little consequence. Thanks for your consideration.
