Feedback loops are not just for corps - but for users
Seeing your post has 200 views and 1 reply is important
* it's like UP and LIST - you need to bring it BACK
@jamie: I'm not sure why views would be important? The coffeehouse is about conversation, and the metric for how successful a post is should be how active the conversation is.
9 years ago - you could post here - and some posts would get 3000 views - but no replies - so you new it was being read / causing some sort of effect
now you post - nothing .... maybe a reply .. if you are lucky
was better before
@jamie: Being read isn't the same as being interesting. For all you know, a page view could be because somebody clicked into the thread, went "meh" and left.
we are assuming here that people who posted a lot - or did things to earn them - at least a rep of - not a moron - would get read
so its not like someone joins in a day
we all posted what we thought to be true - many of the people still here - (ha almost ALL of them) will remember
im just saying it was a good gage for US ... but I guess ms hated seeing 3000 staff reading something we wrote (get legal involved!!) too bad.
we used to "fly the plane"
@jamie: Well that's just typical -- you wait ages for a jamie post and then 3 come at once!
I don't really care for view counts -- it ends up like cheevos with people getting competitive.
Perhaps if you only got views on threads you hadn't started it would be less competitive?
I much prefer C9 fix their broken WP8 IE forum support. Sure, statistically not many people have WP8, let along niner using a WP8, let along niner using a WP8 to post a reply. But, something is broken is still broken, just because the probability is low doesn't mean it shouldn't be fixed.
