Dude, this does need fixing ASAP.
1) I am logged in. If I download my own file from my own page, this is counted as a download. I repeat: I am logged in! How easy would it be to prevent the skewing of the statistics ... :(
2) I released a new version. Thus I manually uploaded a new file and deleted the old one. Remember that nice list at the bottom of the "Analytics" page where it says which file has been downloaded how often? Deleting the file also deletes the respective statistics line. The only way to keep it would be to just hide the download, which is unacceptable if you have many updates. After a year, the Edit page would be cluttered with like 50 hidden files. Instead, the system should keep the statistics around even if the files are deleted.
