Dear Andzik,

And you CHEATED to get it.

Refreshing the screen over and over and over to rack up the counter.
Here take a look at your stats:

That's just a quick copy and paste from my counter stats. It records the last 25 visits, you filled it all up all by yourself. And last night when I went to bed it still had 150 hits left to go, which means you refreshed the screen a LOT more than I can accurately track.

That's WRONG, that's called CHEATING and STACKING the cards in your favor. I KNEW something was wrong when this was in my inbox this morning, I keep track of the counter too, and this was too fast from last night to this morning.

That makes me so angry, cheating to win is WRONG and I'm not going to reward a cheater.

Using the above stats, you refreshed the screen according to your BEGINNING traffic stats (88 total visits) and End Traffic Stats (233 Total Visits)

145 times.

Two or Three, Heck TEN I could have forgiven, 145 I can't.

<========================
===============================

Are people THIS STUPID? DO they Think I'M that stupid? I get a lot of Hits I get about 88 a day on average. But over night 150? Something is really WRONG there, I smelled a fish there and sure enough....

Thank you go Stats counter! I love statistics that are accurate! I just hate that I cannot make the counter not rack up if someone just refreshes the screen.

But then I thought sticking it on a page that is static and you have to PYSHICALLY hit the refresh button on your browser to increment the hits was good enough to keep the stats to a VISIT counter not a HIT counter per say.

I don't need crazy numbers, I want ACCURATE numbers.

Thanks for blowing my counter Ania!

What a jerk!!!

I doubt this will help you now, but I use Extreme Tracker. It shows both unique visitors, and unique plus reloads. It also allows you to block the logging of specific IP addresses, perfect for situations like this (at least it is, if you catch them). The down side is that it squeals on you if you regularly visit your own site. *laughs*

I blocked my IP from effecting the counter.

^^

Because I do check my site daily to make sure everything is working, etc...

Unfortunately RCN changes its IP addresses every few days, so unless you pay for a static IP, it's impossible to block them all on the hit counter. :o(

I have a cable connection, I'm "on" all the time so the IP stays the same.

All the times I've gone to your site, I can't see the hit counter. And I just went there again now- it's the little white rectangle at the bottom of the navi section, right? I have IE 5.0 and I run at 1024x768, but I still can't see it and I have no idea what's wrong with my display. ;.;

That's odd I can see it in IE 6.0

can you see ANYTHING on the go Stat site?

http://www.gostats.com (the graphics are pulled from them)

If you can't see their site, maybe it's something in your connection or your browser.

It's a white rectangle with purple numbers
