There is no tooltip on search result page on view count field if a question has more than 1000 views. That view count field is located just below of vote and answer count fields on the left.

See for example https://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged?tagnames=java&sort=votes&pagesize=50 and its first question which has following html code:

<div class="views hot">31k views</div> 

In most places this kind of inaccurate values have tooltips which show the actual accurate value. Thus, the above fragment should have title="31,157 views" attribute.

If there is less than 1000 views, the search result page shows to accurate view count and no tooltip is needed.


This has been now implemented. However, there is always a tooltip, even when it is not needed. i.e. when view count is < 1000

  • I see the actual view count for 1k+, but I can't reproduce the other behaviour. You may want to start a new question to deal with that issue. – Jon Seigel Apr 28 '10 at 15:55
  • @Jon Are you referring to the view counts on the profiles ( which was a separate question ) or the view counts on the search page (this question)? I can reproduce it myself in the latter, I tested it with the link provided in the question. – Grace Note Apr 28 '10 at 16:12
  • @ccornet: Oh, I see now. No-repro on the homepage and my user profile, but there is always a tooltip on the Questions page. – Jon Seigel Apr 28 '10 at 16:20
  • @Jon I am referring the search result page. The link in question shows only answers with > 1000 view count on the first page. Try for example stackoverflow.com/search?q=java+open+source . There is a tooltip "269 views". – Juha Syrjälä Apr 29 '10 at 9:10
  • Yes, I went to the last page to see those with < 1000 views. – Jon Seigel Apr 29 '10 at 14:14
