Bug? Instructable losing views. Answered

One of my instructables, decided to lose 100 views or so on it's own on both the 'ible stat and my published page, for no apparent reason. 

I only noticed as gmjhowe and I are in a views race so I've been paying particular attention to them but it's definitely and odd problem.


What a drag, maybe that is why I am loosing my little contest with Jayefu, I think you should ask gmjhowe about this - see if he is doing it somehow. Maybe he is passing your lost views to Jayefu.

Jayefuu! They are working in cahoots!

gmjhowe has already admitted to his dastardliness, maybe you thought all that talk about optimized viewing would throw me off the trail but the truth is out.

Please, aside from writing 'ibles day and night I can't think of how to gain the lead that should be rightfully mine, any ideas?

Hmm, we need to be ready for this, Jayefuu, you get the laser, I will get the swords.

Also, we need someone to stand with us, someone well worn in the toils of war, a veteran who they will not stand a chance against.

Dare I say it.

The Astromom.

Take it back or I will delete you will my special powers.

You may be special, but you have no powers.

Ma'am, the cavalry has arrived. I think I can also round up that Texan kid for the posse.

Well uhhhh, call me odd but I'm casting my lot with the cross dressing, cyclecide Irishman. Probably not wise but meh...

Well I'm showing two shirt 'ibles and I'll raise you a macaroon, who else is in?

My hero.... they are all yours. As Peter Sellers said in Being There - "I like to watch"

Yeah, Irish Pirates on Energy Drink win. Every time.

You are all forgetting two important facts.

Jayefuu is a climber, very strong, while being agile.

I on the other hand am a TANK.


That is all.

I too climb, not to mention ride bikes down stairs at parties ...

Also how can anyone fight ninzers tempting food...

Chuck Norris Chamomile Raspberry Tea anyone?

Hmm a dastardly plot... I shan't ask him, he'll arrive home to a broken window and a carved wooden jackalope in the middle of it all...

Replacement window - £200
Labour costs of window fitter - £100
Cost of boards to cover up hole £20

Getting one up on killerjackalope by hacking
in and giving his views to Jayefuu - Priceless

I was going to be classy about this but now I'm going to kidnap your ipad...

There are 8 boxes, one contains the iPad, 3 contain explosives, 3 contain a poisonous gas, the final contains all your stolen views.

Pick a box, hope for the best.

Negative views... nothing unusual. :)

Maybe people are clicking on the project, but keeping their eyes closed?

I don't have this problem.

It doesn't appear to have affected any other 'ibles, though I don't pay a ton of attention...
