Unique views for threads

Post by wernis on November 20th 2016, 6:23 pm

Hi, whenever you visit any topic and click refresh, that counts as a view.
It should not be like that since it should show unique views only and it totally messes up the view count.

This is happening for every forum and it is not considered as a ''bug/error'', but should be fixed since it makes no sense. If in your browser you keep clicking back-forward, you always get an extra view, it should not be abused like that.

Thanks.

So you are saying that it is okay not to fix the issue and be lazy even though statistics won't be correct? But hey it is so cool, you can get so many fake views and pretend to be a big boy. Facepalm.

Why is this really an issue?  It does not cause a major issue with your forum.

I want to see real statistics, there should be an option for that. If you want to see fake views - whatever, but give me an option to see unique views instead.

Please consider this, there should be an option to see real statistics, not this fake shit.

Well, forum threads are not like simple 'articles'. If a topic contains a hot discussion of course the same person will open/ refresh it more times and I do want to see the amount of clicks a topic has. I see no point in your suggestion.

By the way, being rude won't help you achieve what you want faster.

Just to point out one thing none of the staff can make this happen other then the Pro admin and Tech team in the head office and you need way more votes to get this even looked at and even then the thread may not eve get done.

As for this problem well the system only reads the cookies for each time you look at a part of the forum so if you go back and then go in the thread again it is seen as a View on that thread again.

If im right most forums do this aswell.
