    What factors contribute to a threads view count?

    I'm on mobile, but I don't think it tells me views. I'll try to leave it for staff to answer, though.

    I assume it depends on the number of people viewing the thread. I'm pretty sure the system can differentiate between different members and non-members viewing, i.e., people aren't counted twice, though I may be wrong.
    Maybe one of the admins know?

    Thanks. I guess we'll have to see what the experts say. :)

    How about - why is there a ten limit on the options for polls?

    My question is the following: if one day I stop using RF, can I request the deletion of my account (including all of my comments)? :)

    No, we don't usually do this. We offer voluntary bans.

    That's a funny way of spelling 'prison'.

    Well there is day release - that is, we can delete posts before the day is out. :oops: (There is a Delete button next to the Edit one)

    Deleting all comments would make
    discussions they were in inscrutable.

    But forums do die, & everything disappears.
    It happened to one I was in before RF.

    Yeah. There's a group of us here who are refugees from a defunct forum.

    It's demise was a good thing

    Well, technically you can, but most likely we won't comply.

    Just one of the reasons it's important to read the fine print before signing anything.

    I think I'm the only one left here from mine (The History Channel).

    I can name @Polymath257 , @Dan From Smithville , @Subduction Zone , @It Aint Necessarily So , and at least half a dozen have departed our hallowed pages. There are also a few using different usernames, who will deny all knowledge of the forum in question.

    Interesting, i was going to list those who are no longer with us. But the @name doesn't work even though their accounts are apparently still listed...
