well here at psc, we already have post views and i like to use this to judge how good my entries are - the more votes per 10 views the better. but i was thinking, wouldnt it be cool to have unique post views? so you know how many voted and like your post/and how many people didnt like it for whatever reason. it would be fairer for the later posts which dont get many views, they can still judge how well thier entries are liked.

does anyone else think this is a good idea

I voted yes just because I like lots of stats. The more the better, I say.

But it would be pretty low on my list of updates to add.

Unique views would definitely be cool.

I believe it's not the first time thsi topic was raised, but nonetheless it's an intrestinng thing to implement. On the other hand there are some factors to considerate.

Obviously the unique views can only be counted by views from registered members (s there is no other way to tell if it is indeed a unique view (ip can't be considered as lots people don't have a static ip) )

It's highly probable that early entries will get more unique views then late entries, so it wouldn't be just to those who make the effort to chop something nice but don't have advantage or people are lacking the time to post early.

Considering the reigstered members, there's no way of people stopping to have multiple accounts. So if I would register myself under 40 different accounts, I could easily get better results then the ones who play fair and ony have 1 account (unless ofcourse there's a same limitation as there's now for casting votes)

In conclusion, yes, it could be intresting but it's very difficult to have an unbiased rating;

So my vote: unnessessary

yeah I'm a stats fan, interesting idea Armo, I would also like to see how many actual people viewed a post, and the counter to only count each person once, as ooposed to counting every view, so instead of having say 876 views, this may be 213 different members viewing the image maybe. Make it a bit clearer.

I do like the overall views we currently have too though.

wish it wouldn't count it when I looked at my own image Laughing
