Default More Downloads than views?
I've noticed that some posts, including mine have more downloads than views, which doesn't make sense to me. Surely you must have viewed the thread first before being able to download it so I'm presuming this is a glitch. Thanks in advance.

I have that on mine too. Perhaps somebody is hotlinking the link somewhere?

I have that on some of mine too.
But I figured that there is more than one file (eg 3) to download in one thread.
So you get one view and the viewer downloads all 3 files. So 1 view and 3 downloads.
If there's only one downloadfile then you might be right about the hotlinking or a glitch.

I think it's sometimes slow in some views as well.
