i think it would be helpful to the community to have a view count next to the thread count. for example posts:3 / views:95. this would show that there was a lot of interest in the topic compared to the number of people who commented. This would give people more motivation to leave helpful info if they knew there was abundant interest. Thanks for making the site what it is!

It's already there. Move the mouse over the number of replies column of that thread and you'll be presented with a tooltip which shows the number of views for that thread.

I haven't checked the mobile view, but when you open a thread for viewing, at the bottom of the thread you will see "This thread has been viewed X times" and X is the number of times it has been viewed.

Hmm. This doesn't work for me. I'm on a Mac using Firefox. The arrow turns into a cursor when hovering over the number of replies in the Recent Topics thread.

It works for me if I'm browsing forum by forum, but not if I'm using the 'recent topics' page.

That's it Burra...it works for me now on the forum page. I just usually go to recent topics first.
