Here's a stupid question...

How does a Deviation get more downloads than views? =P

I just find it odd that one of my Deviations has more downloads than views. I mean, don't you need to click on(view) a Deviation before can be able to download it?

As much as I love DA, the whole usability of this website really leaves a lot to be desired.

PS this has been going on like this for months, if not years.

Haha! That's just effed up! =P

yeah, kinda. I think somebody must have posted the download link elsewhere on the internet. I don't believe in bugs that can simulate 200-500 downloads every day.

Dhaha Deviantart is sometimes strange.

I swear, this website can do so much more if they just fix it.

I think sometimes Da gets numbers bugs.
Once I received +300 visits the first day I posted a silly text (and written in Italian); and considering that was about the same number as my watchers when I did it, it must have been a mistake for sure...

I would think so too. But if it's a Bug, then it should resolve eventually. but this one has been liked this for months now. =P

Thanks for the comment though. :D

Well, it's not a troublesome bug. probably they're giving priority to the ones deleting deviations from galleries and such stuff.

Np, anytime!
