This question already has an answer here:

I was browsing my reputation/questions, and I noticed that one of my questions has 10k views. However, it doesn't show the 10k view "Famous Question" badge on my account.

Is "10k views" a rounded figure that will show 10k between 9500-10499? Also, does that mean that the "Famous Question" badge is only earned after receiving 10000+ views?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


You can see the actual number of views on the question's page:

Or just hover over the larger (rounded) view count:

You currently have ~9,785 views, not 10,000.

    LOL Thank you for the screenshots and multiple ways to locate the actual view count. – Matt Beckman Aug 9 '13 at 21:09

Looking at your profile, I see the "10k views" on one of your questions, but mousing over the view count reveals 9,783 views. So, it rounds up, and you won't get the badge quite yet.

    Does this mean we have to change our standard, "Caching; it's always caching" reply to this sort of thing to add, "Unless it's rounding; always rounding"? – Andrew Barber Aug 9 '13 at 19:53

    @LBT Okay, I got it. So, it's "Caching, rounding, or oscillating; it's always caching, rounding, or oscillating". I have to admit, that does roll right off the tongue. – Andrew Barber Aug 9 '13 at 20:02

    @AndrewBarber Our three weapons are caching, rounding, oscillating, and an almost fanatical devotion to Trogdor! – Gilles Aug 9 '13 at 20:12

    @AndrewBarber Yes, that's the quote. – Gilles Aug 9 '13 at 20:19
  • Oh, you guys. LOL. Thanks! – Matt Beckman Aug 9 '13 at 21:10

    @AndrewBarber and when it's neither caching, rounding, nor oscillating, the answer is probably in a tooltip somewhere. – Adam Lear Aug 10 '13 at 1:41

It appears to be a rounded figure. If you go to the question itself, it shows that it has 9000 or so views, which is probably too much to fit in the list of your questions.
