Re: How Many People Viewed Your “Most Viewed Thread” Here on Trekbbs?

I think my longest in recent years was my 'Miscellaneous Street - the Soap Opera" thread with 1616 comments and almost 42,000 views.

It is possible that some of my earliest "Miss Chicken - Ruler of the World" threads had higher counts but they don't come up in the search engine. The last Ruler of the World thread (in 2010) only went to 11,005 views and 446 comments. Maybe my first Slave Auction thread went quite high as well.

Re: How Many People Viewed Your “Most Viewed Thread” Here on Trekbbs?

It's threads like this which make me whip out the Search facility and gaze fondly at my inane ramblings of old.

Doing the search, I noted that I had started 186 threads - I had started more but they would have been deleted in the database cull prior to 2008-ish.

Of these, the most-viewed include the current Q&A thread in the Admirals Lounge (so far 25,527) - but that's more of a community thread for everyone rather than a thread of my own design, so that doesn't count. Last season's Formula 1 thread in the Sports forum (13,965) and the first Interpretation of Dreams thread in Misc (13,242) were viewed quite a bit.

Surprisingly, the one thread I started which received the most views (though not the most replies) was the Misc. thread about D&D character alignments (31,065 views but only 53 replies). That was back in the day when all I posted in Misc. was online quizzes and links to fluffy BBC news articles.

I think the more impressive feat, rather than having threads with the most views and replies, is threads with the fewest views. I have a Lounge thread that had precisely six views. Six.





(Funnily enough, this evening I've been catching up on shows on BBC iPlayer, and tonight's viewing include a documentary film about Donald Trump's plans for a golf course in Balmedie, Aberdeenshire, which made several references to the film "Local Hero"; and a documentary about British pub rockers Chas & Dave on their final tour together. While skimming through the BBS Search facility for threads I started, I saw that one was about Chas & Dave ending their musical partnership [148 views, 1 reply] and the other was about the landslide threatening the people in the real-life Aberdeenshire village of Pennan where "Local Hero" was filmed [76 views, zero replies].)

There was one thread in which the little three-legged cat extraordinaire expanded her domain and started to give out planets and moons etc for people to rule.

I haven't started that many threads myself, I'm not really one for starting them.

And only 27,952 of those people were me.

Seriously, though, that's amazing for a thread with all of 18 posts in it.

Re: How Many People Viewed Your “Most Viewed Thread” Here on Trekbbs?

OH it had to be a thread you started yourself? I thought it meant a thread you personally have most viewed, though I guess that is a bit convoluted. King Daniel really should take a bow though for the one I posted above

Okay the most viewed one I started was my Kirk/Spock slash thread. Yay!

Only 708 posts but a whopping 21,297 views. You dirty people.

back in 2010, when I was still doing the Hunk of the Week threads, the Karl Urban thread had 32,207 views.
Hunk of the week sounds cool! For me it'd be the same three all year round, though.

I'll be sure to have a look at it when I get to the Admirals' Lounge in about a decade or two.
