I liked seeing "views" back then to see what the lurkers were interested in.
What would pretty cool, is some indication that counts the conversion of lurkers to members. Like, if someone joins and replies to your thread as
their first post, you get a little brownie button like a flag. I see a lot of "I joined because of this thread" replies.
Of course, that would require the return of the massive of DB writes and some non-trivial coding.
EDIT: The more I think about it, it would probably not require all the DB writes, but rather the non-trivial coding of tying a new member's first post
to a thread. And many new members join because they don't agree with a thread, with no intention of rewarding the author. so... never mind.
