Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Normally when a question has more than 1k views it shows as 1k, 2k etc. rather than 1234 views.

This isn't the case for questions appearing (after ajax/etc) above the "new questions with activity" message, in that case is shows the exact number.

Screenshot. or it did not happen – amanaP lanaC A nalP A naM A Mar 5 '12 at 15:45
What page are you seeing this on? – amanaP lanaC A nalP A naM A Mar 5 '12 at 15:46
On the homepage, the "Community-led deletionism: a protocol for sanity" question was edited by CasperOne (no SS sorry) – George Duckett Mar 5 '12 at 15:47
I added a screenshot for you :-P – amanaP lanaC A nalP A naM A Mar 5 '12 at 15:48
This is also happening on the favorites page (and many other pages) not confined to the main homepage. – amanaP lanaC A nalP A naM A Mar 5 '12 at 15:49
That screenshot shows it correct though!, the question(s) appeared above the "(2) new questions with activity" message. The question highlighted had it's views as 2083 (or whatever it was).. – George Duckett Mar 5 '12 at 15:50
I saw it has 2038 views. When you hover over the 2 you can see that as a tooltip. – Oded Mar 5 '12 at 15:52
@Oded: Right, but when it was ajaxed in above the "new posts with activity" message, it showed as the actual number (2038), rather than being truncated as 2k. Is this done on the client (maybe my browser had a funny 5 mins?). – George Duckett Mar 5 '12 at 15:54
hmmmmm I don't know... – amanaP lanaC A nalP A naM A Mar 5 '12 at 15:55
I think I understand now - when the page returns from polling (or using web sockets or whatever), instead of the 2k display logic, you see the full value? Is that the case? – Oded Mar 5 '12 at 15:56
@Oded: That's exactly it. Sorry for the confusion! :) – George Duckett Mar 5 '12 at 15:57
