Hi Dave

I don't know if the thread views counter is useful for admin purposes, but it's not capturing everything.

I just noticed two threads, for example, that had 6 and 3 replies respectively but both had 0 views. Clearly that isn't really the case.

Perhaps the code for the counter is at the bottom of each page and some of us (like me when using my phone) don't wait for the whole page to load before stopping loading or moving on.

Not a biggie, just thought I'd mention it

Hmmmm......that's something to think about. Thanks for bringing it up.

I believe the counter runs in batches to save processor time.
