This is a rather trivial request, but I would imagine trivial to implement as well. I just received a notable question badge on SU and when I look at my question list, it says 3 kviews, even though it only has 2500 views. It looks like you want to limit the view count to 3 characters and 2.5 would fit. So how about formatting kviews as n.n until they reach 10?

I like it. I keep watching the following, expecting that I am close to Notable Question for this question:
I checked and sure enough, a single decimal would fit nicely!
So I think this would be a great feature.
In my opinion I see that counter as a "milestone" meaning if I get a rounding to 2K it means my question has been viewed at least 2'000 times and then the question is in the 2'000 - 2'999 range.
Even mathematically the error could be bigger, in a user point of view, it seems that logic make sense, no?
For reference, these are the current inaccuracies
(max of 33% off). Using x.x (1dp) for between 1k and 10k will reduce the maximum inaccuracy to 4.8% within the 1K-10K range, which is exactly the same as the inaccuracy for 10499 -> 10K.
