It seems ok although not really necessary. But I think with how frequent the views are that the constant changing is annoying.

This is semi-serious btw. It's something that seems strange to me. You'd think that entire species would cease to exist if other ones evolved from them."

And the flashing color. It wouldn't be so bad if it was like main page and/or one color.

That's what I meant by constant changing but I should have said flashing too. One color would not be as bad but it goes up like 80 views every minute.

It reminds me of Christmas lights with numbers.

I was already doing that. Every time you refresh the page it goes up one.

it's taking up some not insignificant bandwidth. Not monstrous, but not insignificant. Terrible feature. Stick ten ads in its place, and make a link to the counter at the bottom.
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

Kinda pointless but it's cool. I'm not annoyed by it at all. But I don't tend to get annoyed easily.

It took me about 2-weeks to build the counter...but it's still in Beta testing. I need to get the polls done on Debate.org so y'all could vote on it. That aside, I still like it, and it's staying for now. I may change the colors in the future, but not yet.

I think it would be a great idea if it did not change colors. It is interesting information, and kind of entertaining. It is just that the changing color is distracting.

I have one suggestion:

Don't make it refresh in real-time like it does now. The main thing that makes it anoying for me is that it is constantly changing and partially refreshing the page. Having it update only when I refresh the page myself or go to a new page would be much better.

Ah, now that's a feature I'm looking forward to! Polls would be cool :)

The counter doesn't bother me; but then, it's not really something that affects how I use this site. I can't speak for the others, but I don't really have any need to know how many views the site has had.

As it is, it's fine. Its an issue you\we should look at after some other nifty feature, namely, the polls.
