A final tidbit about the community counter...
That or maybe your device was speaking to a different server that was off sync with the servers that were actually keeping track...indieauthorALH wrote:When I checked in this afternoon I saw the community counter was getting close to the mark so I decided I'd just sit and watch it tick up until the candy cane cooling towers were awarded. I watched it going up by 10k a second until it was within 50k of the goal, and then the popup appeared saying that the prize was won.
And now I come here and see that someone else posted their counter hit the final mark even earlier, but the prize hadn't yet been awarded.
Seems to me that: a) people running different versions (e.g., Apple/iTunes, Android/Google Play, Amazon/Amazon App Store) are seeing different counters, and b) the counter shown to any given player doesn't necessarily reflect a true count. If it did, then my counter wouldn't have still been ticking upward after that other player posted that the goal had already been met, different players wouldn't be seeing different totals, and I wouldn't have gotten the prize pop-up until after the counter I was looking at made it all the way to the goal.
So yeah, I still kinda think the community counter is/was fake.
Just a thought. I bet Spencer would know tho ...maybe?
