    Is there any way to see the number of views of a thread? Or is that no longer available?

    We replaced that public information with total "Likes" which we felt was more important.

    You're probably right but I miss the views tabulation.

    Still think the title and the quality of the posts make a discussion worth reading. I might discover that a thread of 100 posts and 3700 views has little relevance for most readers. Likes? Well, it's about recognition of the quality of posts from the members. This matters a lot. But to the owner of this website the popularity/external traffic matters, too.
