I was just on Hubpages about five hours ago, but now when I go onto my account and look at the views for my hubs I suddenly have over 12 billion views, and five of my hubpages say they've had exactly 4,294,967,295 views each. Obviously this isn't correct but I don't know how to fix the problem or who/how to contact Hubpages about the problem. I don't want to get in trouble, of course.
Don't worry about it. You are not the only one to have billions of views in the 30 day view column. I have two hubs that have the same number of views. I know HubPages is aware of the issue because everyone is talking about it in the forums and on Facebook. I am assuming it will be fixed soon.
Yup, it's a bug. I'm sure they'll fix it, just as soon as they figure out where the software engineer made a tiny error.
What is (most likely) happening, is that the software is calculating a negative number of views. This shouldn't be possible, and when it's stored in the database, the database automatically converts that negative number to the maximum possible number (4,294,967,295).
Just like in Office Space, it's funny what a tiny little mistake in the code can do...
Wow, that's insane! I've not had that yet. I think I'd be pretty freaked out too. From what I'm reading, a lot of people are experiencing this as well and HubPages does know there is an issue about it. I am positive they are working to resolve it. I just hope it does not affect earnings and HubScores.

For the first time since I can recall, I see straight zeroes for traffic. I have 88 hubs published and all of them show 0 views. Really? Something is not right. I've never had this.

I've been on HP all day, basically and have been checking my stats. Within the last hour hour or so one of my hubs have jumped from less than 10 views to 566 views all from within my subdomain. This is weird and may be...

Today, I hit the "answer this question" button on the Q&A page, regarding a question about 'favorite poets,' and instead of giving me the box to type in the answer, it bounced me out to the front...

Wow! Something amazing has happened over night! Nearly all my hubs have red up arrows next to them. Ones that were getting 200 views a day have gone up to 700 views. My normal range of page views in a day for all my...
