Refresh

I worked pretty hard on a chop for the Gay Sochi contest, was basically finished and went to submit and it said I had two hours left so I said great Newsy is giving more time on this one so I will tweak it a few more minutes and submit. I worked for about 10 mins and went to submit it and the frigging contest was closed. Apparently there was not an extension given but a major snafu in the site refresh or something.

Not sure why this happened. I see you wrote this two hours ago and the contest submissions JUST closed minutes ago. Next time please take a screenshot and post. I also saw other entries submitted after you wrote this. I have extended the contest submission for an hour now - please submit.

I see this often these days. The timer doesn't refresh, so stay close to what your clock says, it won't lie.

The front page refreshes once every 50 minutes, so the timer there does not refresh in real time indeed. But the timer on the contest page itself refreshes once every 5 minutes so it's rather accurate.

I am not sure either Vlad. I think I might have had a senior moment where my brain phased into jelly mode and then back to concrete LOL

I friggin hate getting old. I think I might have read the wrong contest or something. But I have noticed what Evirio said. I have to thin most errors are going to be my errors because that is generally how it works out. So probably smart not to mess with the site until you get 4 or 5 people saying the same thing

Most likely, I think, you clicked the submit link to the wrong contest - the Sochi Stamp contest - which was long closed for submissions of course.

I would still prefer to see a real time digital countdown clock (day-hrs-min).

I made the test recently, as I was wondering why. I tried to compare the timer on the front page and on the contest page, they were the same. I logged out and back, nothing changed.

It also does it to me when I edit an entry, I don't see my edited entry before at least 10 minutes, when I see it directly on a another computer. (using the same config)

This almost got me the other day too, thinking I had a couple extra hours left to submit.
I understand the 1 hour discrepancy that can occur from front page to the contest page, as explained by Vlad.
Here is what I think may be happening. I can sit working in Photoshop for hours with my browser open to the front page of FN. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the site doesn't do an auto refresh of my browser, so when I go back to post or just check the page after working on my chop for 2-3 hours, my browser is only displaying what it had cached earlier. So now without a manually refresh from my end, I fool myself into thinking I have a lot more time.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! yes. That makes sense as it is the closest description that accurately states what I experienced. It is likely a cache anomaly.It also explaind why it does not happen all of the time.
