    View glitch?

    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.
