It used to be that whenever I started a new thread and then clicked on "view new posts", I would find that the thread already had 1 or 2 views -- frequently 2. I figured one of those views would be my own, and the second one might be some automatic board feature.
Lately, however, when I start a new thread and click on "view new posts", the site tells me that there have been 0 views in that thread. Okay, I figure, my own viewing of that thread doesn't have to count here; it certainly doesn't count when I look at photos in, say, my own Flickr account.
But just now, I posted a reply to a new thread, and then when I clicked on "view new posts", it STILL said that the thread had had 0 views. This, I don't understand -- someone else had started the thread, and I myself had to view the thread before I could even think of posting a reply. So how could the view-count still be at 0?
Has there been some change in the board software that would account for this? I'm guessing that, if there is, then it might just be so highly technical that it would fly right over my head. But on the off-chance that I might understand it, I figured I'd throw this observation/question out there.

In The Informant thread, Peter lists the actors in the title, but then goes on to list them "for the search engine" in the thread itself. I thought if something was listed in the title it would automatically turn up in a search. Not true?
The searches in particular throw me a bit off. I think we've lost some stuff from years ago. I was looking for the thread to Tales From the Gimli Hospital, which I swear was a thread since the time we became A&F, but apparently there is no longer such a thread.

The A&F search engine has never paid any attention to thread subtitles. Titles, yes. Posts, yes. But subtitles, no. I wonder if this is related in any way to the fact that new A&F threads will show up in the RSS feed with titles and posts, but no subtitles.
