    One person was going to look-- and changed their mind.  tongue

    Actually, I (obviously) don't know either. Maybe the "-" is a space, instead of a minus?

    Maybe one negative person looked at your site? Those negative people, you just can't count on them!

    This is clearly a glitch in the Matrix. Inform Morpheus immediately.

      Maybe the minus means from the other side of the dateline or the equator or both?

    Could it possibly be showing that you have one person less looking at your hub from aol than yesterday? Some stats are set up like that, where they will show you if you have more or less visitors from the previous day, week, or month. In that case, you can have a negative number.

    I had the same thing show up on one of my stats two days ago and wondered about it too.  Figured as long as it was only one I wasn't going to worry too much.

    Every once in a while the running total gets corrupted, and we have to re-calculate the day, week, and month numbers from scratch, which can take a little time.  Normally, when we update the stats we just add the total from the latest hour, and drop off the total from the hour that is moving out of the window.  Anyway, everything should be back to normal sometime tomorrow.
