Hi guys (and girls, of course),
On the 2 panoramas I've uploaded, I can see how may times the link to the panorama has been opened. But this doesn't tell me how many different people were curious after these pictures. Therefore I wonder, is there a way to see (for instance) the numbe of different adresses from where the panoram has been opened? Or maybe there are other possibilities with a comparable result?
Thanx in advance

Not to my knowledge. In fact, that view count even goes up each time you view it, yourself, while signed into your own account.

From a now-invisible part of a thread on the old Get Satisfaction forum: 

DOSman!	2008 08 29 02:13				Can you make it not count our own visits when we're logged in and viewing our own synths?
Shane	2008 08 29 03:20				Yes, I totally agree. Wish I knew how many were me, and how many are actually others. The way it is now could lead to people artificially increasing views.
Andrew	2008 09 05 22:36				That would be great!

I concluded that we can't (easily) track other people's views, so I decided to relax about the view count and if somebody wants to sit and hit refresh on their page 100 times, more power to them! 

What we really need -- as many people have said -- is a stars or favorites feature, so we can measure how many people thought a synth was worthy of attention. It's on the list."
