But, with only 15244 posts to 82092 views (at my visit, anyway!) lots of people aren't playing the game properly.

OOh, I said "The Game"! I guess that means I, and all of you reading, just lost twenty dollars and my self respect. Sorry! :mrgreen:

I suspect that my above post has been moderated somewhat, I don't remember losing any dollars (not that they are much use to me, anyway, English Pounds only, please!).... :lol:

Um, this post feels devoid of content. Good luck?

This isn't a post. It's a flying screwdriver. Draw your own conclusions, unless you are named Frank. In that case, don't drink beer next friday. Your life or your wife might be on the line if you do.

Probably - although does the view count increase if you have to read more than one page?

I stopped playing The Game ages ago, dude.

Over the older threads it's in second spot, with roughly 6 views per post.
Only Count to a Million does better with slightly under 5 views per post.
