I guess the best way to explain the question is by example.
I guess it's not really a problem so much as an annoyance and I'd like to know about it or if it's even a problem on my side.
At least, twice now within the last 3-4 weeks, I've changed my avatar (for reasons I won't get into), and both times it took about an hour to register that I had changed or even attempted to change. To a degree that I thought there was an error somewhere between grabbing my avatar off my HD or even using Photobucket but neither way registered a change until after a certain period of time or after I logged off for a while or seemingly if I post, it'll decide to change.
As a new example, I just now changed my signature (again, reasons I won't get into), and I noticed it was overextended from the borders of the posting areas. So of course, I resized the image and reapplied. The change wasn't registered, but I wasn't sure if may it was just still too big, so I resized again. Still no change, but I know the resize was 40 pixels under the old, so something was off.
So I made this screenshot to compare what I see from my angle:http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y229/Shin...ServerDelay.jpg
Is it something from my angle, or is there something weird going on?
