for that we all can see,

because not everyone put a vote or a comment

On tutorial pages, there is still a “read counter” — which isn’t working :-(

As Linus Torvalds would say, "talk is cheap, show me the code." :D

It's a website that changed (growing and shrinking) in functionality over the years and while it does what we need it do, it isn't hard to spot where things could be refined. What changes were needed over the years have been implemented (critical bugs fixed, new moderation system implemented, new statuses, and so on). The nice-to-haves are hard to justify spending time on by the Linux Mint development team, as Linux Mint releases, Cinnamon, MATE, the Mint tools, and so on naturally get first priority.

That said, the website is open source so anybody can work on these ideas:
https://github.com/linuxmint/community.linuxmint.com

Just like Cinnamon has many volunteers contributing, for the nice-to-have ideas for this website that is also what would be needed--volunteers contributing. There's only so many the Linux Mint team can do at the same time, but with the help of the community of users a lot could be done!

Why? It is not compulsory to vote or comment and a post could be viewed by the same person multiple times so a view count would be relatively meaningless.
