    Since that view number is always number of replies + 1, I recommend to get rid of it.

    Either by modifying the template or with some CSS magic (modern browsers only):

    .threadstats>li:nth-child(2) {
        visibility: hidden;

    I gotta agree with this one. I just asked someone (oNyx?) what happened to the website believing it had died while I was away.
    Not being a regular visitor, I'd also like to make a comment about the forums feeling a bit cold with the Indie Related Chat forum being at the bottom of the page, incorrect viewcount and pruning of posts (Quite hard to find the setting to shut it off, even though you know it's there!)

    Well, it's just my thoughts :)

    Agreed, I thought it was weird seeing only a few threads even though there are much, much more! Anyways, you can set it differently - Up top hit Forum Actions > General Settings. Scroll down till you reach Thread Display Options and for "Default Thread Age Cut Off", choose what you like and hit Save Changes at the bottom of the page. C:
