I wonder what is "People helped" (PH) stat supposed to signify. From what I read in Profile Page Makeover, Part 3: the Prototype returns, it stands for cumulative number of views on some (all) of my posts. I would like to know why we consider views as such a significant thing to put it on the very top of the profile page.
It has been discussed before that various things affect the votes in a bad manner: Hot questions, Meta discussions, Tweeted posts, ... This is of course based on the fact that these questions are viewed more. If it affects the rep to the extent that we request something to be done to prevent this from happening, why is PH introduced which is even more sensitive to this phenomenon?
As well, we've already got one measure that is ridiculous: the reputation. And what does it signify if I have 1.5k rep and 15k PH, while someone else has 1.5k rep 9k PH and yet another person has 1.5k rep and 33k PH? In my opinion, nothing.
In conclusion: I don't directly propose PH to be removed from the new profile page. I'm just eager to see any true use of it.
Edit: I made a very wrong but somehow working PH calculator on SEDE.
