Technical Problems At Indymedia??

Apparent random delays in posts showing up on Indymedia.
Over the past week or so, I've noticed anywhere from 6-24 hour delays from the time I've posted to the time my post actually shows up. Apparently this is happening to others too. For example, the thread about the Tri-Met bus and the bicyclist ... my post just showed up, 24 hours after I did it. It's in the right sequence, as is another right after mine, but neither was there earlier this morning. The effect is as if someone had cut the list and inserted these posts into the middle of the thread, although in the right date/time sequence.

Am I doing something wrong ... and if so, can someone clue me in on how to correct it ... or is Indymedia having technical problems?

I'm not really sure what the problem was for you, but sometimes things get automatically put into a sort of holding bin, because they inadvertently trip some kind of filter, and then have to be moved back into the normal flow of things manually. Maybe this could have been the problem you were seeing. Sorry for any inconvenience.

I appreciate your looking into this. Hopefully all is now well.
