Issues of interest -- recent most visited conversations

For anyone's information and entertainment here is a list of most-visited conversations that have been active on this Forum recently. There is not an easy way to list conversations by frequency of visit, so instead I just went through my own list of starred conversations. Therefore what follows was not obtained systematically and it is not exhaustive. Still, someone may find it interesting to see which topics garnered the most views.

Here is a new version of that list; I selected recent (at present date 2012-11-25) conversations on the Docs and the Drive forums that were viewed more than about 3000 times and that were active since about March 2012. The search is not entirely systematic, because the productforum software doesn't sort on number of views.

Hi Bas!

Thanks for this very useful aid! :)

I'd also like to add a shameless plug to one that you missed that is near and dear to every student's heart...  Different first page headers...

Different First Page Header?

I hope this one is implemented as well!

<<Different first page headers...>> Thank you dziegman. Indeed, I missed that one; it has 5630 views today. I think I missed other conversations that started more than about 10 months ago and it is due to something that I just described in another conversation [1]. There is not a direct way to produce a list of most visited conversations, so I extracted these lists by going over my own list of starred conversations, and I make a habit of starring any conversation that gets lots of views (in addition to conversations that I find personally most interesting). But it seems that conversations more than about 10 months old have all lost their star. Anyone that cares about these most visited conversations should probably consider my posting here of yesterday together with the one of back in February 2012, although I used a cut-off closer to 1000 visits back in February and a cut-off of 2800 yesterday.

The "When will Google Drive come to Linux" conversation has reached a milestone: 40000 views. I find it an occasion to update the earlier list of often-viewed discussions on the Docs and Drive product forums. There is no direct way to search for most viewed conversations and it is very much possible that I have missed a few.
