[theme-reviewers] Most Popular download counts seems off

Hey everyone, 

Sorry if this has been brought up before but I'm seeing a discrepency between the downloaded number next to the Most Popular themes on the themes page and the actual downloads for the past week in the individual theme stats. I was noticing this a while ago and it seemed to come and go sporadically, but it seems to be permanent now. 

For example, our good friend Emil's Responsive says 15,000 on the main page but the actual downloads for the past week are roughly 10,000. Every theme in the top 15 seems to be off in this regard, and in some cases the ordering seems to have been impacted as well.Thematic is at the bottom of the top 15, but actually has more downloads in the past week than Evolve which is sitting at 14 based on the number on the themes overview page. 

This may seem arbitrary and nit-picky, but it's something I've noticed for a while and was just wondering what the deal is. Is the weekly downloads in the stats on each theme wrong? Is the number on the themes overview page wrong? Are they both wrong? 

Just some food for thought I guess :)
