    hmm, exactly what i had first supposed, but if that's true, wouldn't the views value for this thread be higher than zero? it is zero right now (or was just before i started typing this...)

    *shrug* probably not important...

    Hi

    Updating that value 'on each view' cause table locking in the database, it made the site very slow at times. Now the views are stored in a tmp table and only updated evey ~1500 views.

    cheers
