    Note in the screenshot below, the thread "Does having a lot of apps...." has 7 replies but only 1 view. That's not possible :confused: I have noticed that happening lately and just wondering what's going on or if anyone else has noticed it.

    I have been noticing this also. It is almost like the replies numbers are updated all the time, but the views are not updated as they happen.

    I believe that views are updated on a timer whereas the actual amount of replies are retrieved a lot easier since it's a fairly simple query. Or 1 person wrote all the replies... :D

    Glad it's not just me :)

    Oh the timer theory makes sense! Thanks for responding :)

    vBulletin allows you to set things, such as updating counters, on a delay to reduce server load during peak times when they are getting a lot of replies and views. I'm actually kind of suprised views are updated automatically instead of cycles like replies.
