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

Postby DrStalker » Wed Nov 21, 2007 9:57 am UTC

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!
There are two types of people in the world: 1) those that can extrapolate from incomplete data.

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.

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.

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

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

Also, this is me, posting, yes.

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