I recently noticed a post that was in the BGG Related section (listed as BGG Help and How-To - Consistently getting quickly slaughtered in LOTR LCG base game) that should have been under the game's forum.

I clicked on the link and marked it as in the wrong forum only to notice that the page I was on ... was actually in the right forum. When I went back to the homepage though, it was still listed under 'BGG Related' at the location mentioned above even though it has already been moved.

Is there some sort of delay to these? Refreshing the page did not fix the list displayed...

There are definitely caching delays. If everything on the front page were updated in real time, the amount of traffic would be unsustainable.

It appears to be a day later now though, and it still hasn't updated on the BGG Homepage. I just had the same experience as the OP a few minutes ago.

And it is still there this morning too. That seems to me like an overly long time to rely on cached data for a heavily used forum. Especially given how many new users we get that post things in the wrong places. Then again, I don't really know how often BGG refreshes these caches (for all I know it could be later today).

How often is the homepage cache supposed to update?

I wonder if it could be somehow related to the Stats page not updating issue...

Almost two weeks and it's still wrong on the BGG Homepage.
