view counter adds me as a new view

of course this could be done, the reasons the counter acts the way you observed is quite simple:
To be able to distinguish your (or anyone elses) first visit from following ones,
it would take some kind of data collection in which the system would need to keep track of all tracks you have visited once.
Whenever you visit a track, it would have to look up wether this is your first visit and mark the track as "visited by you" if there is no record of a prior visit.
Imagine a database keeping track of which of the 33k users has visited which of the 50k tracks - that would be enough of a database to seriously slow down the servers performance right there.
I do not want to go into technical detail too far, bottom line is:
Any solution to improve the per track statistics comes with so much extra server load that I'm carefull about that.
One would need a seperate statistics server to cope with that... so it comes down to being a budget issue in the end :/
yes, you are looking at the administrators signature.
