When I look at the different topics , it shows at the beginning, two different numbers. I am assuming that thiese are the number of threads in the topic, and then number of posts in the topic. Some forums also show a number for how many people have looked at a thread. For instance, a thread might have had only 10 posts; but 100 views of the thread. Sometimes, this would be normal, as in when someone posts a joke or story that we read; but there is not much conversation about it. The reason that I am inquiring , is that I always notice that we have guests on here viewing threads, but of course, they are not posting anywhere unless they decide to join. I was thinking that whatever they are most looking at might show us what topics are generating interest on the internet for this forum. I realize that different ones would come here from different searches; but it would be interesting to know which threads seem to be the most interesting to the "lookers". Does the information that you get as a forum owner show these statistics ?
