People do realize that the thread views counter picks up on readers browsing each page? So if a thread is 50 pages long, and a reader goes through each one, they clock up 50 views on the thread counter.



Yep. There's a bias towards long threads. I don't have it set to a lot of posts per page and I'm cognizant of the fact that my reading the thread is contributing probably around 100 views.

I will say that I think the Taxwoman/Poetguy thread has more unique viewers than any other thread. Bold statement, but that thread has been linked in more places than you might realize.

But we'll never close the Auto-Reverence Gap (ARG) with the Wikienlist unless we ban all non-auto-reverent discussions.

39,387-34,977 now, in favor of Taxwoman, who finally seems to have lost steam.

Yes.

And that black skin for the site is awesome. I just have this weird peach and tan thing. What is up with that? How can I switch over to the badassery?

Bleck. Give me peach and tan anytime. Or even plain bookpage black-on-white. Anything on black looks like Elvis and Johnny Cash in the 70's, trying to do Marlin Brando in The Wild One (1953) which is where all that "badass black dressed biker" crap comes from, ultimately.

The skin selector is at the bottom left of the forum next to RSS. The skin you're looking for is Darko.

A plain black and white skin would be nice. Any chance of adding a few skins besides the Green, Brack, and Darko?
