    Does the View count represent each person who has viewed it or does it count for the total number of views?

    I think total number of views.

    Including guests and bots, like the google spider for example, in the public areas of the forum. In the member only areas, it's just members of course.

    I've been trying to increment the view count on my new test thread (even using multiple browsers), but it hasn't happened.

    EDIT: Adding a reply also added a view; my guess is that it didn't count any new views from me until the thread that had to be loaded changed.

    The system only renews the view count from time to time. Waiting half an hour or so should be enough to display the new view count after a refresh.
