  • @jeff - why did you add by design? surely the effect is just a bug - you didn't design that! – Reinstate Monica - Goodbye SE Jan 27 '11 at 20:51

    caching is by design. Just wait and see the viewcount. If it's still wrong in an hour then let us know. (This varies by traffic -- if the site is getting 1 hit per hour it may take a while.) – Jeff Atwood Jan 27 '11 at 23:22
  • @Jeff - thanks. If I see it again I'll be in touch. :) – Reinstate Monica - Goodbye SE Jan 28 '11 at 20:13

I've had the same effect on another question on one of the other stack exchange sites. I've noticed that there can be a delay on the reporting of various data, but usually the question data is reported pretty fast. In this question, Robert Cartaino‚ô¶, mentions it's caching that causes this effect.
