View count not displayed properly

I noticed that many of the new submissions for the contest have zero views, even after I clicked at them. For example, I commented on inpatskitchen's Porcini Popovers but it is still showing zero views. Is it only me, or others are experiencing the same?

Apologies for the inconvenience LE BEC FIN. We had a temporary hiccup in the view count processing, but it's back up and running now.

To take it easy on our servers, the tech team adjusted the way view counts are updated - they take longer to update now, but rest assured, your recipe's view counts will go up over time! We understand this removes some of the instant satisfaction you gain after submitting a recipe though - we'll consider speeding it up, particularly for new recipes.

Emily, I'll share that suggestion with the tech team, and nice catch QueenSashy!

Thanks, Lindsay-Jean. It seems that view counts only really show on the contest screens these days so perhaps the servers could be sped up just on those?

A scientist in me could not help but notice that the viewcounts are multiples of 29. An interesting algorithm!

This has been the case for years.

I asked the editors about this months ago...I don't think they realize how closely we watch it.

Hi dymnyno, four months ago the view count discrepancy was due to bug that was fixed. As I mentioned above, in order to take it easy on our servers, more recently the tech team adjusted the way view counts are updated - they take longer to update, but recipe view counts do go up over time. And as always, as a reminder for everyone, the best way to share feedback about the site or let us know about a technical issue is to send us an email - [email protected].
