Does clicking the flag counter count as a visit?

I couldn't fit what I wanted in the title, but basically, I'm not (that) dumb. I was reading through the FAQ and it said that all that had to happen was the flag counter had to load for a visit to count.
But since the website I want my flag counter on runs through a proxy, something happens and it doesn't record these visits as stated here.
So, if this doesn't work, can I get the visitors to click on the flag counter instead to bring up the more information page to register a new visit? If not, then I guess that could be a new feature and should be stated in the FAQ but I thought I might as well try.

Thanks!


what if I put a flag counter in my signature... on the flag counter forum? http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/cute.gif

I don't need a return visit, the website my flag counter is on intentonally makes flag counters useless anyway http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/errr.gif

Hi frisbii,

Clicking to see your statistics page does not add a flag to your counter. Only displaying the counter adds a flag. You could put a link to the counter image itself if that would be useful for you.

Sooooo.......

does this mean I can put the flag counter up on an image hosting place, link my visitors to there, and if they click on it the flag counter will count them? Do you know any image hosting places that would allow this (like have code with the image)?
Also, as I said, the website I want the flag counter on runs through a proxy which makes it so that visits cannot be recorded but if I do link them to this image hosting website will it also update on the proxy'ed website?

Thanks!

Hi frisbii,

Not exactly. You don't need to involve any image hosting place, and that would not work. You just need someone to view the image, such as https://s10.flagcounter.com/count/J80Z/bg_FFFFFF/txt_000000/border_FFFFFF/columns_5/maxflags_10/viewers_3/labels_0/pageviews_0/flags_0/ for our forum counter.
