Not sure if anyone else has noticed, but if one clicks
on a page not viewed for a little while (i.e. one that
is red and not black), the page view count increments
by two and not one.

Interesting...I tried 10, and 9 gave me a double count and one (the first one I tried and the newest) gave me a single count!

That could be Google MediaBot updating its cache of the page.

So TWAT has gone up 8.72%, Insignia has gone up 11.16%. I think Insignia is going to continue to win.

I think Insignia is going to continue to win.

As you are aware, given the counting anomaly I found, I am a little sceptical of the thread view figure totals. However, that said, I think the percentage difference between TWAT and Insignia might be worse than that indicated.

I've done a little more research on the counting anomaly and I believe I've found that it only affects those members who've previously posted in (whatever) forum thread. For example, if edmund (last posted in Insignia 11 months ago) were to refrain from visiting the Insignia thread for a month or two, then return, the resulting visit would initially generate two views per page; i.e. go through the 13 pages and the result would be 26 views rather than 13 (n.b. subsequent visits would only generate one view). A new (non posting) visitor, on the other hand, would only ever generate one view per page.

Now in contrast to the above, I have to own up to the fact that in recent weeks I've once again gone through the whole of TWAT - so straight away that's 2000+ views above the norm. If we then double that total, which I'm fairly confident would have been the case, I believe that that alone can account for the best part of 1% of that 8.72%; i.e. I think a figure of 7.8-9% increase would be a little closer to the truth (though what truth is open to question).

In conclusion, given what I've now found, I believe the Insignia viewing figures are likely to be fairly accurate (most visitors to the thread being new and just looking for codes) whereas with TWAT, who knows? One thing for certain, however, is that TWAT is the most subscribed thread, in both posts and posters. For that, three cheers to JP!

Just browsing the forums and noticed a somewhat remarkable reversal of fortunes . . .

As of the moment the Insignia thread views = 816,357, and the T.W.A.T. thread views = 989,517. Seems like T.W.A.T. is going to crack the 1,000,000 barrier first after all. Anyone want to hazard a guess as to when?

My guess; 5th September.

djy, as keeper of those wonderful stats I guess you would have a better idea than most.

I'm afraid you both lose, because another thread has snuck up the rear and already surpassed 1,000,000 views!
