The question The list of every type of sound all instruments can make? on Music: Practice & Theory Stack Exchange was still on the Hot Network Questions list, despite being closed half an hour ago:

The list is supposed to refresh every three minutes, so there seems to be some kind of bug here. It is gone now but I can't tell whether that is because of the closure or the lack of upvotes (the question has a score of +1 and one answer has +6, that isn't particularly hot).

    @JohnDvorak question refers the statement that list is expected to refresh every three minutes. Seeing one that was became inappropriate 10x longer than that definitely feels like a bug – gnat Jul 22 at 17:09

    @gnat the statement about the HNQ list has surely been cached for longer than three minutes. Is it still accurate? – John Dvorak Jul 22 at 17:10

    @JohnDvorak if that old statement contains stall outdated info, it needs to be refreshed so there is a bug anyway – gnat Jul 22 at 17:16

    There is some deadlock issue in the database, I suspect it's causing all kinds of weird bugs - but let's wait for a dev to confirm and fix. :) – Shadow Wizard Wearing Mask Jul 22 at 18:10
