Everytime i load a pgae in to update the next day automatically, it never does. I end up having to reload the page in.

Me too. I tried to upload pages in advance, and while they are clearly visible on my “comic pages” list (along with today's date!), they won't show up on the comic's site. I re-uploaded pages several times, which worked.

They have a programmer working on this. It seems to be working for some accounts and not others? They know it's still not working for some, so they're testing- unfortunately there's only one chance a day to test. :I

Also to be determined is whether it affects both newly-queued pages and previously-queued pages. (ie, would a fix work retroactively, or only from that point on?)

This has been happening to me too for the last 2 days (the beginning of the batch I uploaded with the new system.) Which means of course that “previously uploaded” pages were not affected, only the ones I uploaded with the new thing.

The programmers probably already checked this, but I remember during the site migration last year there was a similar-ish problem which was happening because the server clock was a day off. Auto cued pages might not be appearing on time because the system doesn't know that today is actually TODAY. Maybe pages will show up tomorrow - has anyone tested that?

I set a page to be updated on the 8th. It did not update at the usual time, so you may have something there. I notice that the queued page IS now updated, several hours late.

There are tow pages slated to be updated on the 9th. One using the new system and one using the old system that is now linked directly from the new upload page.

The fact that pages auto-update “Several hours late” gives me an idea. We've been used to having pages pop in automatically at midnight on the Live Date, but what if .. um .. are auto cued pages showing up at the time you uploaded them instead? I wish I had thought of this yesterday. Is anybody keeping track of the exact time-of-day when they uploaded their pages? I'm gonna test this myself just to see what happens. If I set a page to update tomorrow, will it appear at 10:40 pm?

Nope, I was wrong. I don't know when the page showed up, but it was _at least_ an hour earlier than expected. Which busts my theory. But at least there's one possibility ruled out…

Well, I posted it at 10:40 Eastern which would be 9:40 Central… It was already there when I checked at 10:40 the next day, and had been up long enough for several people to comment. I don't know the exact time it appeared, but one reader estimated it was there by 10:30 Pacific, which would have been 1:30 in the morning, my time. I'm even more confused now than I was before. This week's Saga pages were all uploaded Sunday afternoon and they seem to be showing up on time. But today's Potpourri page (uploaded a week ago) is late.
