I havent found this anywhere.
I would like to be able to go to thread title and see how many people have viewed that thread.
I open a forum (like General Gaming) and see which threads have the most views.
In the Trade forum, this might be especially helpful. I would like to see how many have viewed a thread. It would tell me if it is a thread people are interested in.

Thanks

BGG doesn't have a way to count views.

Thumbs already do this to an extent, and usually better. They indicate the popularity and/or value of a thread. In this way, they're more useful than views: A view is counted even if someone briefly pops in and determines that a thread is useless to them. A thumb count really indicates some sort of value (whatever that means).

Obviously, thumbs aren't perfect, but they somehow work out in the end. (They do run dangerously close to being a "popularity contest", but a view count is even worse in that way!)

There used to be a viewcount on user profiles. That turned out to be creepy.

You can easily install a viewcount by putting a flag counter up.

That is on your user profile page of course. It counts how many times you visit your profile as well. But other countries are counted ok.
