Default why posts don't show right away?

Have noticed it here and on other forums as well. When I am logged in I can see my posts, but not right away if not logged in.

Eventually here I see my post if not logged in. But on other places after a couple of months, I came to find out I was banned but not told. No one could see my posts but me. Kind of passive aggressive of the site. Wasted my time and never did find out what I said was wrong. I could only guess why.

I've noticed the same thing, not just my posts, all new posts don't show, this is just in the past few days, same on other VS forums. It started happening just after the site upgrades notification in the Mod forum.

Dunno what you guys are talking about. I just did the test post and it showed up as soon as the page finished loading. I've not seen any hesitation at all in posts showing up.

As clearwater said it's logged out viewing of recent posts that don't show up, not when you're logged in, log off and look at posts that were made today, most won't be there.

I think this might be a result of a new function we added to the site. We recently added Cloudflare to the site to provide an optimum experience for users for both site speed and security. This programme prioritizes users who are logged in first so visitors to the site won't see the most up to date content. I'd say that's whats going on here.

The "Stale Data" effect is very noticeable when not logged in. Post's from others are not shown as well. Click on a topic from the recent discussion tab and that latest post will not be there. The stale data effect is more prone on my PC vs the Iphone if that makes any sense. It is good to improve the user experience, but the cloudfare change may be a step backwards. Can't speak with certitude as to exact numbers, but many will not log in unless they choose to write.

This post intended to be helpful feedback to site operations. Does not require a response.

I would agree. This cloud fare thing sounds like a really bad idea for the site and for site revenue assuming it is still based on ad views.

Large numbers of folks reading without the intent to post have always done so without logging in. If you deny those folks the newest content you hurt the site in the end.
