Here's how it works:
  1. Anybody can ask a question
  2. Anybody can answer
  3. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top

I have constructed the following URL, but the questions returned don't contain anywhere near 50k views, despite the query string parameter:

http://api.stackexchange.com/2.1/search/advanced?site=askubuntu&views=50000

Instead I get questions that look like this:

{
  "items": [
    {
      ...
      "view_count": 600
      ...
    }
}

According to the documentation:

"views - the minimum number of views returned questions must have"

This was a caching bug actually, a few parameters weren't being considered when doing a cache lookup (such as views) so you'd get back non-sense data.

It's been fixed in the latest deploy.
