Maximize the post:views ratio! (if you look, you must post)

Every thread in the forums has two numbers next to it: the number of posts, and the number of views.

The goal of this thread is to maximize the posts:views ratio. To do this:

1) If you view this thread, post something. Anything. Duplicate posts are fine, if you view the thread twice in a row.

2) Do this every time you view the thread, not just the first.


Lets see how close to we can get to a 1:1 ratio!

The time now is 10:02 GMT

(ps you know how tempting it is going to be for people to be an asshole and purposefully view without posting, right?).

Hey, is posting multiple times without reopening the thread forbidden?

'Twas not actually said, but that "if" in the duplicate-posts paragraph makes it sound questionable.

....we could get a higher post count than view count?

I swear at this moment this is what it says (before my post, obviously). This means we're winning, right?

I need to just stop compulsively clicking this thread whenever it jumps to the top of the page. I'm getting tired of realizing I have* to post now.

*Obviously I don't have to, but in the sense that you have to, to not be an asshole

I only opened this thread up because I saw more replies than views, and had to balance it out.

OH SHI-

Funny how things you "have" to do always end up feeling burdensome... :mrgreen:

I also predict this thread will have a eerily low view count =D

Does the forum count the views by guests?
(i don't think so, but...)

Also, this is me, posting, yes.

Well, it's at 29 out of 29 so I ain't gonna take responsibility for loosing the 100% score. Incidentally, I thought about posting this game a while back so nice going :)

I know double posts are bad but if I post again without refreshing, can I get the posts to views ratio above 1?

Nope, I was wrong. I must have looked while heXiuM was still posting.
