yesterday, again i had one sale from one of my recent upload
but in the stats column for this file it displays "0 views"

has anyone encountered this too ?

Yes, I'm having the same.

Two possible explanations:
1. Views are not updated instantly. The number seems to change only after some days. You can easily see that when you sort your files by number of views (ascending).
2. It looks like you can add files to your shopping cart without clicking on them. Since FT has a rather big preview when you move the mouse over the thumbnail, it is possible that some buyers buy without really clicking on the thumbnail (thus generating a view).

Yes, it happens all the time. Probably due to the way they choose allocate resources for the indexing of sales and views. Sales need to be instantly updated whereas views are much less important.

thanks. That is the kind of explanation I was thinking about

Next challenge now is : selling the image already before it is uploaded  ;)

For all those who think I have been stealing images and uploading them on the stock site. Please - first ask if my images were stolen or have I been stealing someone's hard work.... I have been creating vectors from past 3 years and more and had upload them on a few site to display my work as well as the tutorial's and screen shoots so that others can learn and create something beautiful. I wasn't aware that my images were stolen and were been sold. The few images shown here were created 2 - 3 years back with all the details for others to learn and not steal my hard work. So if you still feel I should be behind bars I would request you to get your facts straight before you can blame anybody.
