[Acknowledged by Flickr Staff] Views in Stats are off (low) again

sdttds says:

Now that the too many views issue is fixed, they are too low to be believed again... unless people are leaving in frustration over Flickr rolling out unwanted "improvements" rather than fixing known issues.

In any case, views are less than half of normal. I was willing to believe a drop over the long weekend, but it's dropped even more since then.

Yes. My total view count has been DECREASING very recently. I have not deleted any pictures, or changed any permissions, or taken any other actions recently that I think would decrease my total view count. Rather than making screenshots and sending them to Flickr staff, it has been my experience that it is better to just wait. Flickr usually, though not always, corrects these types of errors.

Hi everyone
Thanks for flagging the drop in views. We are looking into this further as we have received reports of an unexplained increase in stats recently which may be correlated.

We will be posting in this thread with any updates.
