I think the total number of views to question is being calculated wrong...

this question for example

Here no of views is still 1, but it already have more than 8 up votes.

That means there is error in view calculation.

Screenshot of question is added below

    Good catch tho, and this shows that you're involved in the site and that you want it do well!

View counts for questions are heavily cached; they aren't updated in real time, so the count won't be 100% accurate at any time that you view it. Given that the question was only a couple of hours old, you just viewed it before the count had a chance to refresh.

    I would also note that this caching effect is much more pronounced when the site is very young and does not yet have a lot of traffic. You will hardly notice it at all once the site gets going. Sep 5, 2012 at 19:46
