Hi everyone,

I asked a question on Stack Overflow yesterday and noticed the number of views dropped by about half randomly.

I had my profile on my laptop open from yesterday, when the Views Count was at 519.

Number of Views

Today, it has dropped to 380. See this post.

Is this normal?

I've seen things on the internet I wish I could unsee -- maybe someone finally figured out how to do it? – Jim Lewis Oct 4 '10 at 22:17

There were some errors with view counts over the weekend.

Basically, pretty much everything ended up with an inflated view count total. On so, the margin was about 40% (on average).

This has been corrected, and that's what you see there.

So I'm not imagining things. This is good news. – Marko Ivanovski Oct 4 '10 at 22:36
