@baris Ugh, duh! And coincidentally all the other users I checked were in the same boat. Thanks for the clue bat.
Incorrect Topic View Count
Running stable 0.5.0 - I long suspected that View Counters are incorrect. Right that moment I have a topic in my forum. ACP shows that there are 2 guest users reading it right this moment. Yet, its View Count is still 1, which is what it starts with when topic is created.
Here is a little more info: I am certain View Counters are grossly off. I believe that direct topic hits are not counted. That is what is counted is going from Category to Topic page. However, arriving directly to topic link appears not to be counted. Also, not sure, if arriving from Home page to topic (bypassing Category) is counted.
Just checked the code seems like only registered users are counted for views, will fix that.
