Don't count publisher views in the total views statistic, at least not every page load on the same computer
I noticed as I was preparing some new panos that each time I loaded the page, my view count incremented. It doesn't seem fair that the person publishing a pano should be logging new views each time they load the page. Shouldn't the publisher of a pano be excluded from increments to the view count? Especially while logged in.
I'm pretty sure that's the way flickr works, or at least they don't increment the view count from repeat loads from the same computer.
