    the one with page views - that at least would not make the site look so bad - look at last 3 or 4 pages - replies 1,4,12,3, 2,2,7, 3,   it "looks" like the replies are view counts - and it looks bad.

    It already takes a week to get a reply anyway - or are you just fazing out c9?

    Yes this is the 80th post about this - its why i left - it why c9 isnt popular anymore.

    i just want to know if it is intentional - to make especially coffeehouse - less visible, possible - than it could be.

    signed - someone who did get over a million VIEWS on a c9 post Tongue Out

    oh ya that wasnt me - cause i cant log in to who i was

    I still fail to see why page views is important. Channel 9 is about conversation, not popularity. The reply count shows how many people have joined the conversation. A users stature in the community should be judged on how well they can start and sustain a discussion on a topic, not how many page views they can get.

    I dunno.

    Page views counts are great, but if you want to know how popular a topic is, then check the number of replies.

    I don't get you at all Jamie. How does Ballmer have anything to do with page views? He can't make be come to C9. Sure, his popularity may influence things, slightly, but not to any real extent. And whoever replaces him can't magically make a million people come here. There's no actionable item here.

    i look at coffeehouse as a designer paid to make things look better / bigger...

    ignoring design - all i see is 11    5     2     8    ... it just looks pathetic and sad is all im saying

     

    how about - add 00 to every reply count.... then we will know 200 replies = 2 - but most people wont!  =  looks more popular = site attracts more people

    is that not the game?

    Why don't you create a new design for us? Big Smile I don't care so much for thread views, but I do feel this design is a bit too sterile. I sort of miss the original design that reminded me of legos.

    @jamiebullsh1t: I'm confused jamie... I get that you want us to have view counts on forum threads. I don't see why that is that useful, but I get that you want it. What I don't get is how you think putting these #s on the page will cause people to rush to the site. I don't think that is at all what causes people to come here. And, "It already takes a week to get a reply anyway" ... do you mean from us ( the team)? Because that would be a problem I can do something about ... but if you mean a reply from other users, I have to think the question just didn't interest people, I see lots of threads on the site that get replies very quickly. The point of the coffeehouse is to discuss things though, not get answers to questions, so perhaps that is the confusion.

    We are not, in any way, fazing out c9. The # of people coming here has continued to increase day after day.

    I normally only jump in a Jamie thread if his post doesn't take too much effort to parse. Sometimes I read it, throw up my hands, and move on. Tongue Out <-- for clarity

    @kettch - I am fairly new to C9 so I don't know about this "view count" that Jamie is talking about, but judging the popularity of a topic by the number of replies is rarely useful.

    I have thought that it would be useful to allow some way to show "subtopics" on longer posts. Because after the 3rd page of comments on C9 the topic very rarely resembles the original post.  (And can change every 3 pages after that.)

    Wow. I thought personal attacks here are not allowed.

    @DeathByVisualStudio: They aren't, but I'm not sure that's a personal attack. Jamie is well liked around here, but it's common knowledge that it's not always easy to understand his posts without doing a lot of parsing Smiley.

    @wkempf: Jamie's got a lot of interesting insights and a very unique and...colorful point of view. Like you said, to get the value, you need to parse through his stream-of-consciousness style.

    @jamie: well, I think know my thread with 200 views and no reply, is more depressing than just seeing no reply. Is view count the main reason your lack of participation? I would like to hear more. IMO, I dislike C9 culture.

    Leaving WM on 5/2018 if no apps, no dedicated billboards where I drive, no Store name.

    I don't see how a lot of parsing equates to the need to throw up in one's hands.

    If we all believed in unicorns and fairies the world would be a better place.

    Niners have in the past critiqued his posts for being mean spirited towards other niners. In response, he's been trying to record instances of other niners posting mean things too and getting away with it. This is one of his attempts.
