My apologies if this has been mentioned before, but I can't see any recent threads about this so thought I would ask the question. I have noticed for some weeks now that very often when I go into My Account and look at the stats, the slideshow views for 'today' and 'ever' are simply not there. Another time I will go in and they are both there. This seems to be almost a daily occurrence but I have no idea why. For what it is worth I see little point in knowing our slideshow views, today or ever and would not mind this vanishing altogether, but others may feel differently. Does anyone know why this is happening or if we re going to get to a point where these particular stats are always there or not at all? (for the record, at time of typing this post they are missing again)
Seems you're not the first to see this: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/87463
Any chance it could be because you're not getting any sometimes? Or do you usually get a high number of slideshow views?
I will look at your link in a second QM, thanks for posting it. No, I get loads normally, and what is happening is the entire two columns vanish from the stats, it isn't that they have zero views, they just aren't there at all over my entire 256 hubs!
This is a screenshot of my stats header so you can see the columns are actually missing. Sorry I have no idea how to make it bigger, but I reckon you can work it out by zooming in using the 'view' tab.
Sorry but I've no idea on this one. I don't have slideshow views on my account header either (on several accounts.)
I had a feeling there was an announcement about removal of this statistic ages ago, but since people are sometimes still seeing them, I guess they didn't.
Cagsil did mention in the thread having figured it out, maybe ask him?
Just read the thread and I reckon Cags means he has worked out that they do keep coming and going, not necessarily why. I will ask him anyway though. I bet if I check my stats tomorrow though they will be back again (and no doubt yours will be too). Honestly it is happening all the time. I was really pleased the first time I ever noticed because I thought they had been got rid of for good, but then they reappeared the following day. Ever since then they appear and disappear randomly for no apparent reason and with no explanation.

Why on my Hub Stats page, are my page views sometimes less instead of more?Today I stared out with X, which has been 5 to 10 views less each time I check. What the heck is going on?
