Suggestion: Stop counting script updates as daily installs

This ends up messing up with the "Total installs" Total numbers

Updates (as in - Tampermonkey/Greasemonkey/whatever updates the user to the newest version) do not count as installs.

Yes you are right. I know it, but I actually meant this case example;
The user installed a script
The script is updated
The user opens again the script page
Greasyfork will display this button "Update to version x.x"
If/When the user clicks on this button 1 new daily install will be counted

This results in the total installs total number being messed up and showing fake numbers.
If I follow the case example that I've previously explained in an hypothetical private script, this script (That I'm the only one that has the link) will have as many installs as I update the script, even though I'm the only one that have installed this script

By the way, how the website knows that I already have the script installed? The "Install" button changes to "Reinstall" on what basis?

Some script managers provide Greasy Fork a means to query to see what version of a script is installed.

Got it. I've fixed this just now.
