    Lately this stats BS has happened rather often.  How about a heads up from staff explaining what's causing it?  It's getting freaking tiresome!!

      Randy, what are you referring to?  I haven't seen anything odd except for a daily view a week ago of over 4 million.  That's been fixed.

      Happy Friday!
      After checking with the team, I found that something else running in the background was preventing stats from updating regularly. We have stopped running that process, so stats should be updating fine right now. Sorry for any inconvenience (though then again, it did give you the opportunity to be angry at us! big_smile).
      Look on the bright side, y'all!

        If it had not been happening at regular intervals I would have no reason to be perturbed at the stats problem, Simone.  Are you saying that the tech guys hadn't even noticed the stats weren't working for over 6 hours?  Gee, no wonder this stuff goes on for days at a time on occasion.  I'd rather things run smoothly and not be bothered to point things out.  Que sera!  cool

          I suppose what I should clarify is that people can expect their stats to be updated several times throughout the day. This often happens hourly but will not always be the case.

          If there is somewhere in our wording on the site that says stats will always be updated hourly, please let me know. I should change that!

            Simone,  I think the original problem of the stats being frozen has morphed into another problem, which is that now the stats page is saying an update has occurred recently, but the actual stats are not updating.  The former situation was better.  At least we knew from the last update time that the stats were indeed frozen without having to look into it any further.

                ???  Isn't that what a number of people have been saying throughout this thread?  Perhaps it's the time delay issue between the time that it says the stats were updated and the time when they are actually updated, but there was a point today where I could have sworn that the stats said updated within the last 30 minutes but nothing was actually updating for a couple of hours.  I don't usually fret over the hub stats because I know they will eventually be updated.  I am more wondering what long term solutions are being proposed and/or implemented to fix this ongoing problem?  I know how it is, many companies short-change their IT Dept. and don't give them enough resources to address problems properly, but shouldn't that be a top priority at a company that does its business via the Internet?

                  My stats also say updated at different times but I know that they are not actually updating because, for example, I know that I'll go into a page but those views don't change and aren't recorded, even when the stats say "Updated" they don't seem to be reflecting actual number changes with the update.

        It has been established that we will get no monetary reimbursement or any other kind of payback for sucking up... however, working with the public on a daily basis, let me just say... You guys are doing a great job, I'm sure tech issues will arise now and then and I'm also sure nothing grave will happen to any of us if we have to patiently wait for you to fix the problem. Thank you for acting in a timely manner on our behalves. You are appreciated!

                Thanks... yeah... I totally agree with you, but then maybe it's just a life perspective thing. Some us are ok to wait on results and others feel they can bring about a resolution faster if they squeak their wheels, so to speak. I don't know... it just seems life to short to make a big deal out of seemingly small things. Either way, I'm sure HP emp.'s are working just as hard as the rest of us. After all it's a business and not many employers are quick to let ppl slack at their jobs. I highly doubt HP's is any different.

                  The OP is convinced revenue-sharing sites are dishonest and screw their writers out of their rightful share of income.  He's a bit of a crusader, so when he sees incorrect stats, it's a red flag to him.

                  I'm like you - I don't see much point in getting my knickers in a bunch over it.

                    The OP is certain SOME revenue-sharing sites are corrupt and have proved it in the past Marisa, which you should be aware of since you were a member of the same site.  When I have over 100 articles stolen from me I take it a bit hard, as some authors might  possibly do.

                    I'm sorry if I worried you guys with wanting the stats  to work properly.  I realize I sometimes ask for the impossible.  roll

      KNOWN ISSUE:  HubPages is broken.  I think we all understand that in this world of computers and Internet there are a lot of technical problems, but I have wonder why these occur over and over and over again here?  I suspect management hasn't allocated the resources to fix it, as the technical staff at HP seems competent.

    Yes, it is getting old, Randy. As others have stated, my earnings have not moved all day. This has been the case all week.

    Quite honestly, and I know this is really silly, but when I see so many issues going on like the stats freezing I start to worry that perhaps other systems in HubPages are not working properly either and we wouldn't ever know about it. For instance, how would we ever know that the ad sharing revenue system is working properly and not stuck with only HubPages ads instead of our own for extended periods of time?

    I was also having a great month for Amazon selling many products daily and then a couple of days ago my Amazon earnings from HubPages flatlined and I haven't sold a thing since. I can't help but worry that there is another issue going on behind the scenes. The frozen stats make me paranoid about the reliability of other systems which I know is silly, but I can't help but wonder because we have no visibility into some of the more important revenue based systems.

    The stats table is still a little wonky, hubs I know had hits yesterday night are still showing as zero this morning.
    And this is where it gets weird, a hub that has had 6 views in 7 days is showing 0 views for 30 days, how is this possible?
    I see another old hub with 2 views in 7 days and again 0 views in 30 days.
    I've cleared my temp folder and tried again, same results.

    On the plus side my views are slightly up.

    I'm showing decreased views for one day, and that number has stayed the same - has not changed in many hours. Then I have increased views for the week and month.  I admit it is frustrating to try to track our progress (or, cough, the reverse) in the wake of a major Panda change, and have numbers that aren't making sense.
