Are you speaking of themes you've submitted at Hitskin?

From what I am aware of I don't think there's an option for that? I will look more into it. Once I find an accurate answer I'll post it here. (I'll ask our Pro-Admin, that's if I don't find an accurate answer).

Hi,

This is not possible, as hitskin does not record which forums install x skins.

I'm a bit curious of this, as what influences Most popular?



I notice newly submitted skins may temporarily be added to the top of the Most popular pool for a short time after submission. They will later be moved back to the correct position after another set period of time.

My guess is "Most popular" is determined by how many clicks it gets assuming they don't record which forums use the themes or have any vote counts, as it would be easy for them to count the clicks (views) each theme received. But that of course doesn't reflect if the people used it or not after they had a closer look at it.

I bet they have a record of which forums installed themes but they elect not to reveal that information. It would probably be hard to keep track of as people uninstall themes regularly so making that info public might not be very accurate. Besides that there might be a privacy issue they want to uphold.

Runaway is correct, the company does have the ability to count, and reveal who installed x themes, but because they are not required to, there is no demand of such a tool, and some people may (and do) get offended if someone changes the theme from theirs to another.
They choose to publicly give this info out, and will not, even upon request. (So it's easier to say it's not possible)

The details are recorded and saved onto the hitskin.com server, which is only accessible by forumotion staff.


Seth, it is counted by total installs vs views, not installed over period of x time.

That had answered my question, thanks.

I had assumed that they counted total installs/views however, as shown in my screen shot; why do some newly submitted skins get displayed at the very top of most popular for a brief time? When overall it would take a considerable amount of time to actually achieve said position. I've noticed this happen to some of the skins I've submitted, as well as others.
