Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

On this question, there were 5 answers about 20 minutes ago, but the main page claimed it only had one answer (even after refreshing); It had only 1 upvoted answer at the time. Now it has 5 answers still, 3 upvoted, and the main page now shows 5 answers. Is this a result of caching, or some function that I am unable to infer?

Caching. It's always caching. – Martijn Pieters Jan 22 '13 at 15:36

I had a similar issue here, the problem being that it was caching the older versions of the page. If you're behind a proxy, the proxy can also serve up stale versions of the page.
