How is it possible that a question can have zero (0) views and yet also have an answer?

screenshot of question with 0 views, but an answer

Doesn't having an answer mean that there was at least one view?

Views are buffered and cached, so it is normal to see the viewcount lag behind the actual value a bit.

If this persists for an hour or more let us know, but I doubt it will.

  • never experienced that before. Usually I can see some view in seconds after posting. This post had 9 views after 42 mins... I'll keep an eye on it...
