K symbolizes three zeroes (000). See: SI prefix

So 1k would be 1000 views/votes anything.

The confusing part and I will (eventually post a request on meta about this) that this might be confusing since 1 kviews means nothing actually, and should be 1k views.

(Though most people do understand)

Is it clearer now?

Good luck!

1 kview = 1 kiloview = 1000 views
