View Count Download Counter Inconsistant.

Type and post message. Read 0 times...

And I was just reading a post; 0 views; refreshed and it said 10.

You initial view would count as 1. When you refreshed, it may have counted that as another view and perhaps 8 or 9 other people viewed it between your initial view and the time you refreshed.

After posting you will see the message with a view count of 1.  During prime forum hours it wouldn't take very long at all (measured in seconds probably) for 9 additional people to read that message, especially in a busy board.

After I post I see a view count of 0, consistantly.

I was just reading a post and pressing refresh several times to see if anyone replied. View count went up and up, then hit zero ... and another refresh put it back to 11.

I just did the same thing on this post, and I saw 10.   I'll keep and eye on this, and see if I can catch it.  Also your correct it does show 0 immediately after post.

Thanks for letting us know!

With opera it worked ok...
After posting view=0, refresh -> view=1, refresh again -> view=2.

I must admit. Mine isn't very accurate as well

The issue seemed to start on one paticular day; I noticed many tiny changes here and there on the Norton forums; maybe you need to undo some changes.

Yes there was a recent update to the forum software.

Re: View Count Download Counter Inconsistant.

Shouldn't it say 2 or something >2?

No.  First view (the one that I get after posting) is now considered zero.  You were apparently the first one that click thereafter.
