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
stackoverflow.com/questions/3900977/… - check this out, I don't see it now under stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/svn – 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 (stackoverflow.com) and the questions list (stackoverflow.com/questions) 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
