I posted a new comment on another user's page (profile page, picture, story chapter, etc.) but it did not show up. Why?

Actually, we don't know why either.

Sometimes when you post a new comment, the page doesn't update immediately to reflect it. This is caused by caching (storing a copy of the 'old' page for quick reference), but that's all we know.

Fortunately, this bug is only visual: Your new comment is not lost in the system or anything, it has in fact been posted. If it does not show up now, it will later, so try not to worry about it in the meantime.

A little more information about this bug, gathered from reports and direct observation/experimentation:

  • Switching your comment view from the default setting ("Recent 10") after posting a comment will force it to appear.
  • However, any comments posted after changing your comment-view settings will not be displayed for that particular setting.
  • Switching between auto-resized and full-view has no effect.
  • Using a different Internet browser has no effect.

  • If a staff member is browsing with "show deleted comments" enabled, the bug does not seem to occur at all.


Unfortunately, this is still not enough information for us to figure out the cause....
