I really need a good/ solid answer.

I tend to think that my message might recieve a million views... but who knows?

ATS thinks differently... Why?

That used to be a feature on the boards. However, as the boards grew it became a burden on the servers and was abandoned. Granted it was a nifty feature, but added little to no value in the long run.

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.

But what if my message got 1,000,00 views on text?

If I make avideo and it gets 1,000,000 views... atleast I will know.

It doesn't slow down the server = myth

Yes, what if?


If I make avideo and it gets 1,000,000 views... atleast I will know.


Now if it gets no views you can assume it had 1,000,000
