    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?

    Server load.

    When you post info about the thread needs to be updated anyways.

    It's every 3 hours IIRC, not every hour.

    It's more preference; the amount of posts is significantly less than the amount of views. Same reason why youtube doesn't update the view count real time.
