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

I don't see the posted question under the tag in which I have posted immediately after my posting. It appears a little later, but it seems to be visible for others. What is happening here?

Can you post a link to the question you are talking about? – codingbadger Oct 10 '10 at 14:55
Probably caching. – ChrisF Oct 10 '10 at 14:59… - check this out, I don't see it now under – user146862 Oct 10 '10 at 15:54

As ChrisF mentioned above - this is almost definitely down to caching.

I can see your question and it appears under questions tagged svn also. alt text

I have never been able to see my own question until a few minutes. Any ideas on how long this takes to invalidate the cache. The part I am confused with is if it doesn't show up for me because of the cache layer, then it should not show up for others also correct? – user146862 Oct 10 '10 at 18:29
@user146862 As a note, the front page ( and the questions list ( have different refresh rates - so sometimes it will be visible on one but not the other. This can explain some scenarios when you can't see it but apparently others can; they may be looking at a different page. – Grace Note Oct 11 '10 at 15:32
