Do page views on Closed questions count towards the competition between Q&A Site views MW3 vs. Skyrim?

Because I think they shouldn't.

  • My inclination would be to believe that they do not, but I've asked internally to check on this.

  • Well, I have this nice, answered, +6, closed 308-view (as of right now) Skyrim question (which is more than most other Skyrim questions have). Would be kinda sad if it didn't count. :D Nov 11, 2011 at 14:42
  • @MartinSojka That definitely won't count, since it was asked a week before the release date.

  • @lunboks: "asked Nov 4", which is within 7 days of the release - unless you're thinking of some other question. Alas, woe is me, closed question don't count according to David. :D Nov 11, 2011 at 15:38
  • @MartinSojka Yes, that one. Exactly 7 days too early to count. Also closed, I guess.

    @Martin It's 7 days after release, not 7 days from.

Per the official rules:

Views on deleted or closed questions, or views that are recorded before or after the 7-day period of each contest will not be counted.

  • Thanks for pointing out the rules. Must read before post :)
