If you think your view count is going crazy Shu, there's one here that has had over 100,000 views since it was OFF the first page. Ridiculous.

It's manufactured with a bot, but who knows why?

The "Thanks" don't add up with the views. Moderator's have any interest in this?? Maybe All the people that view this are too shy to click the button. Don't thinks so. Who put a bot on this thread I wonder?? Step forward and man up. Waiting..... Nope didn't think you would. POS. dorf dude...

The thread I was referring to isn't the one you are thinking of Shu.

I believe there might be three which are using the services of a bot to fake up their counts. The one I was suggesting was way back on page four until recently.

You know, for a good DIY site such as this one, it shouldn't be permitted.

Something can't be right with that one thread. It started in January this year and has almost 200,000 views. Why would anyone want to do that? They don't give out bonus checks for views do they?

hey DD,

I don't know if I am missing something, but why are you concerned about views? What you are doing is appreciated by many, you are doing the work for yourself and your kids ultimately and giving us(the ones that are interested) the opportunity to follow your progress and in turn get some motivation and inspiration from your progress...nothing else is important.

By the way, to illustrate how inspirational this thread is to me personally, last year I was unemployed for 8 months, from March to November due to the economy, and despite trying to find work, I mean any work - I even applied to low paying jobs at Home Depot and the like, I could not find anything(AT ALL). What I really would have liked to do, if I had the money, was to come over there and help you continue your work, that is how motivational your project is for me...and I can tell you now, I was not only very disappointed, but acutally disgusted that you stopped posting, but that is water under the bridge, I for one am very happy you are posting again and look forward to your posts every week, although I still wish I could come over for a few weeks to help.

Godd luck man, don't sweat the small stuff.

cheers
Mac

Thank you very much Mac. The actual views don't mean anything to me. It is just a representation of how many people are taking interest, that's all. I like to deal in facts. We live with rules. I live by the rules. When someone goes out of their way breaks rules and distorts the facts for what ever petty reasons then I get ticked off. They do it right in plain sight and yet they go unchallenged and left alone to keep continuing to break the rules. It is small stuff. One small rock doesn't weigh much but 100,000 of them is over a ton. dorf dude...

I usually check this thread whenever I'm on the forum just in case there are cool new pics. I'm only one guy, but definitely responsible for a handful of views.

Another thing to consider, I believe a "view" is considered by anyone that comes into the thread. You don't have to be a member to the site. So any random person that somehow finds this place maybe counted as a view and they have no way of hitting the "thanks" button.

German House Rebuild


I've been cutting up all the scrap wood I took out of the original house. I came across the original floor boards. They are just over 16" wide! That is unheard of here. They have been cutting down the trees for centuries. No old growth left since 100's of years. This place is really old that's for sure. Only one pic today. The scrap pile is slowly getting smaller, got to watch out for nails and the toys Mia drops along my path so I will play with her. dorf dude...

On the topic of views and bots - there are things like google bots that will crawl through threads to categorize terms for search results. So someone who types "restoring a house in germany" in Google ends up with the results here. A bot from google, plus Bing, plus Yahoo, plus whatever else is out there can add up when they crawl through several times an hour/day.
