As far as I know, at the moment the views count on topics only gets updated hourly. Whereas the posts count gets updated instantly. I'd like to know why this is and why we couldn't change it to update instantly. Sometimes it can be quite fun to watch and see which topics are gaining lots of interest at the moment. I'm guessing it might be something to do with too much of a load on the server or something, but surely the views count is being stored somehwere, so it can't make much of a difference can it?
