    I just noticed this on the view new posts page:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    How come, on some of them, the post count is higher than the views count? How can this be?

    Between insane and insecure
    Their are more of the same people posting over and over again as compared to new people viewing the post.
    Just a guess

    Away from you.
    Not really, it's kinda obvious, and it's been like this for a long time...

    I think that it doesn't go up if a user posts in it or something.

    Post count is updated in real time, views count isn't. Doing this reduces the likelihood of slowdown.

    People could also have posted twice in one view.

    Posts merged

    Like so!
