Instructable has been published for over a day and has 0 views Answered

My pokeball earring instructable has been published for about a day now, but there seems to be 0 views. I know someone must have viewed it, because I shared it with friends, and it was accepted into the Game.Life 2 challenge.

A few minutes after I published the instructable, I tried to view said instructable but it said "Instructables is down temporarily" or something to that effect. I waited about five minutes, and came back to see that it was back up again. Everything was working again. This might be an irrelevant detail, howevever.

Also the layout is a bit messed up. It might be a problem on my end since I'm using an outdated browser on my school's computer. Check attached image.

I'm not sure if this has been addressed already or not, but I wanted to get this out there with the hopes that someone else might have the same problem.

Best Regards,

This is a global problem we are experiencing due to our latest release. Our Dev. Team is hard at work getting those page views back running again.

This is a known bug that was introduced with Tuesday's release. They're working on getting a fix out as soon as possible.

Is this something that is happening to everyone? My view numbers have not gone up on any of the -few- instructables I've written. It is kind of depressing.... I noticed other instructables have thier views going up. Just wanted to know if the problem is individual or global. Thanks in advance for fixing it soon!

Perfect, was wondering the same thing. Especially if contest finalists are determined partially by views.

Views do not count for contests, only votes.
