    It's not uncommon for me to click a link to a new review/preview/article from an announcement in the forum and have the page not exist yet. It would be nice to have the articles ready to view before supplying a link for people to view them.

    Yes, I know it's because I'm here a lot :D, but so are other folks. Just a suggestion. Thanks!

    I do that all the time as well. Seems odd to post a link to nothing, even if it isn't for a long time.<style id="pageBrightnessCustomCSS">body{zoom:165%;}</style>

    The articles are ALWAYS uploaded before posted on the forum. The problem is it takes a good 20-30 min for the site to cache out and update to show when an article is published. When this happens to you, simply take a break, go get a snack and come back and hit refresh on your browser ;)

    Having the links work when you post them was just a suggestion. Not uploaded, not cached...same effect. :) I just mentioned it because it happens often. I tend to lose interest and never get back to read them. Not saying that does or should matter to you.

    But, I might just grab a snack. Good suggestion. :D

    Not much I could really do about it other than posting the article and then going back and adding the forum link after it's public. That's more time consuming and you're probably one of the few forum Jedi that are affected by it :)

    That's fair. I figured that you probably just uploaded both at the same time and then moved on to something else. Thought that I'd mention it, though.

    But...isn't that what Steve is for? :D

    Looks like you guys might get your wish after today's problems.
