My point of view on this subject is subjective, because it's based on my understanding and experience. I've said it twice before: you are entitled to your opinion. I have mine.


And thus why such topics aren't banned on ATS


That is why discussion of Demonic Spells is allowed on ATS. You have your opinion, others may have different opinions.

You don't seem to get that I have nothing against discussing paranormal topics. Please re-read my posts! I think a responsible editorship is essential in the jungle of the internets. But again, that's just my opinion and not yours


Sincerely,

I believe to block these books that are unproven to be anything special should not be silenced. Therefore we can see all the stuff out there that is possible for the general audience to use in the forming of their opinion.... silence of something only leads to its being brought forward as something else that is usually attributed to as real. Until it proven unreal....... The inclusion of these things on ATS just leads to a responsible reader using this to gain insight and verify it with other facts... So now, an intelligent reader can try them and see that it is true or not...

IMHO

***QUESTION TO MODS*****

Where do I see the number of views on the threads? I have checked the profiles page where it shows the flags stars and views but the views is ALWAYS Zero.... Any other place to spot this...

edit for clarity... as mud

I am pretty sure that thread views were disabled months ago.

The views tally has been disabled, possibly permanently.


We are exceptionally unique as far as "discussion boards" go. More than 80% (sometimes up to 90%) of all our daily traffic is from non-members. And during the month of October, we've been averaging about 100,000 visits a day, with an average page-views (of content pages) over 550,000 daily. That's a crap-load of activity.

Incrementing the views counter requires a write action to the database on every one of those page-loads. And as any database administrator will tell you, write (updates) are the most intensive tasks. We were experiencing some performance issues, and once we disabled the views-tally, the issues were cleared up.

So it's the constant balancing act of ensuring all our content is available in a fast and efficient way, along with a long list of unique services for members.



And for those keeping track who might say, "just get a bigger database server,"... we're at the upper-limit of what is available to anyone who leases machines from enterprise-class server providers (a 16-core db server with 32 GB RAM). We've been reviewing options to move to a cluster of db servers, but it requires purchasing some rather costly hardware, which is beyond our current means.


What's happened with our page views?

Hope that helps.

Thank your for that... Wasn't aware it was deactivated... Nice addition if it was given the memory and time... maybe one less ATS get together for the crew and put the funds towards this new server or hardware needed... Just a suggestion...


Thanks also skeptic1

Anyone else have an issue with your u2u notification remaining on after you read the newest update about the press passes? My red u2u light came on so I read the update and checked the thread and the u2u remains red like I have a new u2u. Any help would be appreciated.

This happens at times. The best thing to do is delete the last message.

Had to cut a little deeper, eh?



It's not just admin U2U's, I've had to delete member U2U's as well.

(but I always read and answer them first)

It seems to happen a lot when someone has a capitalization error in your name. If you find that one and delete it it should work. But deleting them all def. gets it

Just a small suggestion. The app that posts the member poll results would be more informative if we could see the number of votes counted as they change.

It might make for some interesting analysis over time.

How come backround images don't show up in Profiles?

I've been meaning to ask this for ages but never got round to it. Why is it that 95% of the time the color codes don't work?

(I expect this has been answered before, but I couldn't find anything using 'search'.)

Here's a recent example of a poster trying to use the feature, but it only working some of the time! -

(Infuriating.)

The color code won't work if you have a ' or " and possibly a few other characters in between the code.

Example that works:

I do not know

Example that doesn't work:

I don't know

'Do not' works fine, 'don't' messes it up.
