Over-inflated View Counter

Post by crashgates » Mon Feb 22, 2021 9:14 pm

Is it just me or do these view figures seem slightly over the top to anyone else here ?
its like each post is getting an exponentially higher view count then over previous periods

About which view figures/numbers are you questioning?

Click on Peer to Peer

Look at the headings across the top

ie: topics-replies-views-last post

so that would be the column where its says "views"

The numbers do seem high, but could be because there seem to be less new posts recently so there isn’t much new stuff to look at in peer to peer. I posted something 10 days ago and there have been very few posts since then.

looking at Peter's last post or Tom's seductive hip hop

like that's 1400 bot views per day checking out Peter's new age attempt or Tom's Hip Hop ( and yeah admittedly their both pretty good and could get those figures )

but do bots really love new age or hip hop music that much? I'm struggling to figure out what's in it for the Bots?

Well I wish each of those views would listen to the track on soundcloud and perhaps I'd make some money!

Bots don't need a "reason" to go anywhere. They just do because it exists.
