How are TG's video view tallies calculated?

It's happened a couple of times, and always some obscure game with unimpressive footage. Most recently, my Atari 2600 "Boing!" submission shows about 10,000 views. I doubt 10K people are even remotely interested in myself, the game, or the unremarkable score. Anyone know how this count is tallied? Or could this simply be a back end coding error? If it's a legit number, Id love to find out what makes it so appealing so I can DUPLICATE IT on my YouTube content, which if I am lucky, Ill currently get ten views on a video.

    i honestly dont care if theres bots or not so dont construe this comment as taking sides, but i think there was a miscommunication. people seem to be taken glens comment to only be talking about garretts video, i took it as all videos with garretts video just being the immediate example. All the videos get a ridiculous high amount of hits.

    What other videos have those kind of numbers? A quick look through the first few pages of the current submission queue doesn't turn up anything like that.
    Also, I dont think there are any "sides" here. I dont think ANYONE is HOPING for bots. We're all just trying to figure out the reason behind the huge amount of views.

    i think the 50-100 views even are high considering the user base, that particular video over 10,000 could well be the highest, however

    3000


    1000
    note: i was searching atari, not garrett in particular. so for the last 50 accepted subs, the riducloulsy high hits are all his. perhaps garret is the bot master

    Thats interesting, if its only Garretts submissions this is happening to I think that info definitely helps.
    Garrett, are you linking these TG submissions when you upload to Youtube? or linking them anywhere else?

    You can sort accepted/rejected/in-process scores by views. If you look at the Accepted forum @Ulisses Patriota has the most recent thread on the first page (as you can imagine there are some threads from five years ago that have had more time to amass more views so they're not as relevant). This is an Atari submission from last November with over 30k views https://www.twingalaxies.com/showthread.php/222866-Atari-2600-VCS-Kangaroo-NTSC-Game-1-Difficulty-B-1-510-300-Ulisses-Lima


    I wouldn't say it's just Garrett. I think that's a red herring.

    Ahhhh!! Sometimes I do, in fact.


    *edit - but even then, my YouTube (and other video platform accounts) barely get 10 views on average, if that. My best one so far is my 10M Missile Command video clocking in at 1,242 views.
