flickr viewcount inconsistencies

A few years ago the numbers of views, in the view count in the "Stats", suddenly jumped to maybe 3 or 4 times it used to be. Some weeks later the number seemed to come down again to settle at about double of what it used to be.

Hm..does flickr anywhere explain how and what they actually count as a view??

 

And there is yet another inconsistency as seen on this photo: Of a newly uploaded photo In the "Stats" the number of views of "today" usually is double of that of the views of "all time". When viewing the photo itself the viewcount coincides with that of "views of all time"

 

( in a forum I am active in there is talking about flickr issues, therefore I decided to point out the above )
