Is there really 73 people on this category or is the counter wrong?

I posted this thread up:

http://codingforums.com/showthread.php?t=132621

20 minutes ago, and it still says 1 view? If there were 73 people online I would have thought it would have had atleast 20 views by now?



EDIT: Ah, it has now just changed to 10

Now you know what the thread titles are for: For people to determine quickly whether or not they are feeling like reading the thread and/or helping you. There are a thousand threads in this category and 73 people browsing it. 98% of those people are probably looking for an answer to a problem they are encountering and your thread doesn’t seem to look like being of any help, seeing that it has been posted recently with no reply yet so why should they read it?

Also you have no right whatsoever to demand support here. We’re all doing this in our spare time and as I said of those 73 people browsing there are maybe 2 or 3 actually active members (if at all) that are frequently helping people. And if those don’t feel like reading your thread then bad luck! Be patient and not demanding and people will help you. Otherwise you’ll only draw bad reputation.
