View numbers stuck? Answered

It might be my imagination but it appears that the views numbers are stuck.  For example, this question was posted yesterday, but the stats say it has only been viewed 17 times and that is on today. Yet I answered it yesterday and it was saying that it was at 17 views then. So 5 people added answers and who knows how many read it but it is still stuck at 17 views.

In addition the view numbers are not changeing on my instructables. These are the numbers that show for each instructable when you list your instructables in your profile page. But the stats on the individual instructables show that they have been viewed however the tallies are not changeing.  For example, my most recent instructable, which ends up at the top of the list (Homers Odyssey) is at 4799 and has been for more than a day, (It's an easy number to remember), yet the stats show 16 views today. So something strange is going on.

In addition, I mentioned it in another post, I got an email saying that my pro membership is expireing yet the profile tab says the current pro membership is good until March 2013.

And finally, I am no longer receiving email notices of questions that I am following, and I double checked the preferences on that. I was getting notices with no problems but the last WatchItem notice I received was at noon on the 29th. Since then, nothing.


Thanks for noticing all this guys! We pushed out a small release over the 29/30th and a few things weren't synching up properly (timestamps, viewcount, and emails).

You may have noticed they should be working correctly now, hopefully we've tracked those all down. Make sure you dump your cache and refresh the page, and then leave me a reply here if there's more you've noticed.

BUMP (I'm seeing this issue also).

Here's a really good example of the view count not working. A question with 24 comments (from several members), but "0" views?

The view counts are also not working on forum topics and Instructables.


Its also important to note that this topic still does NOT appear in the forums. It's obviously published, and I had to access it from Vyger's profile (after he mentioned his bug report would not publish), so I am linking to this from my bug report.


It seems that the view counts are now moving again. It'll probably take the servers some time to catch up on however (but it did look really strange to have more than 20 answers and zero views!)
