Next to each forum category and then each thread, a unique views count.
Why? Its a lot more sensible than you guys think. And please stop chasing my threads and putting criticism in each and everyone just for the sake of it. Please, PLEASE? You know who you are.
The views counter would help you determine if a forum thread you create was enough to get people there, aka was it worth it. Its really hard to explain if you are not familiar with online forums. Generally this is the norm for a forum. HP and a few others happen to not have it.
Me and Relache are often equally the "chasing type" although I bow before her superior bluntness. It's a small forum. I comment on everything when I pop by.
Hubpages members have a habit of having titles that in no way determine the content in the thread. So people may get off by a bad title, when the content is actually great.
I struggle to see why anyone would care about forum views. We are all ultimately here to get hub views, not deliver dubious service to an associated forum. Use the forum to the extent it informs or entertains you
I don't agree with this feature, simply because I don't see it helping either hubber or HP make money. A successful forum will have multiple posts.
When you enter the forums there's a column for replies which will determine its success. Basically a viewer will know before entering the forum which thread to enter based on the discussion.
What more do we need?
So you can cuss me out now too
oh, my fellow hubber I stopped cussing at people when someone had my account banned for 24 hours for making a series of personal attacks at them for being wrong. LOL I mean well and I am learning to listen to what others are telling me based on how fair it is. If it is not fair or may be even wrong then I get angry. But when I accuse them of chasing me around you have to know. Those two at the top are two of the three hubbers that I think the world of and I follow and respect their work in the fullest.

Okay this is great! I downloaded it this morning, and it's really working wonderfully. We all know Edweirdo, a very clever and useful hubber who created the HubDefender tool for us all which detects hub-theft and...

Hello all,I was just checking around in my activities to see where I spent too much time (reading in forum threads I am shocked that people write in) on HP or not enough time lately (minding my own business, I guess)....

While I'm being a policeman, I can't help noticing that there's a lot of self-promotion that goes on in the forums. Especially the "other topics" forums, where quite often you'll find posts with not much...

I have noticed a few questions asked by newbies that have been asked before and so many times it is probably impossible to count. I have noticed comments of annoyance at the same questions being asked yet again. I am...
