Don't count views of own profile
Every time I login, I tend to view my profile to get the 'search for all posts by this user' link so I can quickly see if there have been any replies to my threads without having to subscribe to any of them. However, this increments my profile view count by one, which is a bit annoying and could easily be abused by anyone who wants to get themself into the top 10 most viewed profiles list. I therefore suggest that views of your own profile don't count (shouldn't be too difficult, just a quick if() statement to ensure that the profile ID isn't the same as the current user ID) towards the number of views.

Excellent idea, but...
Where is the top ten most viewed profiles list?

Ah, I didn't notice that they'd got of that, there used be a list of the top ten most viewed profiles. It used to be with the other stats such as top 10 posters, antipoint earners etc.
I suppose there's less need for my suggestion now.
