It's bizarre! Nothing else I've done even comes close to number of views, but this one...It's just nuts! What could be the explanation for this? It seems so strange. If it was extraordinary in some way, then I could understand. Could it be some kind of glitch in the system? Any ideas? I'm stymied.

Okay I might know why... if you look at this pattern for a long time you start to see faces, and bats and stuff. It's weird and like the shapes keep changing. It doesn't mean necessarily that any of that was put there on purpose, it's just because of the way our brains are wired to make sense of random shapes. My guess is someone out there is smoking crack every night and tuning into your pattern to wait for messages from aliens, demons or something. No it isn't me, or my cat.... BUWAHAHA!!

You're not going crazy (at least not alone, and isn't that a comforting thought:) It happens sometimes and I have no idea why. Like this one:
Under_The_Apple_Tree
It has has a fair few loves but the love : view ratio is way off. I assume it's just the colour pixies making mischief again:)

This could be why your pattern has so many views:

I saw it there a day or two ago.

same bizarre number of views ... I never share links of my CL anywhere so I can't explain it. I'll probably never know where it comes from.

Thanks for the link Wist. I've heard of pinterest before though I confess I'm not familiar with how it works. It's nice to see people liking my work, especially when they give me credit. However I'm thinking maybe the whole "view" count is a bit pointless and I've started a thread in the suggestion section here discussing whether or not it's even worth having. I personally don't think it is, though honestly it's not really an issue that keeps me up at night:)

Creations from Colourlovers show up on google if it has an unique name, my guess is lots of people have problems with rotting marble or something? But I like maryjd's theory a lot and will imagine that from now on for everything that has a huge viewcount.

So...stoners. I can't stop chuckling at the idea of "Duuuuuuuuude...." I'm now going to imagine this getting passed around r/trees. Stoners. Yup, that's why I'm going with. Thanks maryjd! :)

Yay! COLOURlovers Plus! version 2014.7.30 is freshly out!

For some time, toasts have been broken and the notification system as a whole got a little wonky as well. I'm super-sorry for this update having taken me so unusually long and hope that the fixes in this new release as well as the little new enhancements will restore your trust in the extension.

On to what's new:

CHANGELOGVersion 2014.7.30
NEW editor: strikethrough button
NEW editor: keyboard shortcuts
UPD enhanced lover comments: black mini pager (by tristd11)
FIX occasional notification system breakdown
FIX broken toasts
FIX enhanced lover comments: broken delete links

Updates are automatic and invisible. You can also make a clean install directly from the
Chrome Web Store™.

I would like to thank the very talented Tristan for contributing his ideas and a kickass graphic design for the enhanced lover comments feature's mini pager – sorry for the enormous delay, mate!

I dedicate the new strikethrough button to my dear friend ♥Amanda.

Nag me with bug reports, feature requests, and anything else really.

And as always, thank you for using COLOURlovers Plus!
