Times viewed counter for registery sets?

13 posts in this topic


Is it possible to show how many times an individual set is viewed? This feature is used on Threads, and shows how popular a particular subject is to the forum.

I would love to see a "times viewed" counter added to each register set. It would show us which sets hold the most interest in the collectors eyes, and what is popular now with our peers. It also would be nice too know if anyone actually is looking at the set you have been working so hard to create.

I just think there would be many benefits for the collector in knowing where the interest lies. And the benefit for NGC is, they don't have one accross the street.

Actually, we had already considered that! Great minds think alike? (laugh)


In fact, I think I mentioned the concept to Spooly, although he seemed luke-warm on the idea. We haven't implemented anything for it yet directly, but we DID put a generic tracking system together that we're using internally to track views of articles from the front page of the CS. We will at some point extend that to sets.






P.S. In case anyone is curious - see article activity below. We have only been tracking it for about a week or two, and this only shows articles with recent activity. Also, since it was only recently implemented, many articles only show residual activity as most people read them long before we put tracking in place. But it's interesting. By the way, these are ONLY views of the full article. So for example, a view of the front page with all the teasers for artciles doesn't count for anything.

Spooly doesn't want to know how unloved his Large Cents really are. wink.gif

Sorry Guy's. blush.gif I did not know this was already concidered, but lacked enough interest to implement at that time. I just thought it would be fun to know which sets, or coin series, was garnishing all the attention. As it says in my title "just learning the ropes".

Thanks for the responses,

No, it really is a good idea. And I think we'll do it. It's not really the lack of interest so much as the prominence of other priorities.

Umm... would it be possible to add a couple of items to our Registry entries? How about a box that shows how many of that particular coin are in that grade, as well as how many are graded higher? Just a thought...

Hmmm.... maybe. We do have a link from coin details to the population report. We could possibly add those pop counts more directly. I'll look into it.

thank-you!, for taking the time to look into it!!! Still, it brings out the question of whether a-- say 66 ultra cameo-- coin is the finest, when there are 68s and 69s...

even so, it would be nice to have an immediate 'reference' of where ones coin(s)

stands, with regards to others graded...!!!
