Artificially increase post view count?


New member
Is there a way to do it?
It's tough getting people to sign up and post to a forum that's unpopulated.
I'm able to basically talk to myself via several accounts to make it look active, but the next barrier is the thread view count.

Any easy solutions?


Is there a way we can increase the next user id value to greater value?
For example if the current user registration no is 245, can we give a custom add value of 1000+ and then the next user will have user id:1246

So 1000 non existent members will help the site how?

No one cares about member count other than the owner of the site, what matters to the end user is good quality content and community engagement.
