Now then, I don't know if anyone else has this problem, but quite often when I upload a replacement image nothing happens to the original image (I wait 2 minutes). I will have to upload it again, but it says there is a duplicate although it is not visible. Is this a technical glitch or me?Joe Click Here for Awesomeness15:30, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

It's issues with Wikia's servers. Be patient and they will load. Karlis (talk) (contribs) 15:50, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
Yes but if I upload it again it will work.Joe Click Here for Awesomeness17:31, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
That's not usually the case. You can tell by the filesize that the image has changed, just hasn't reflected it yet. There is no benefit yo uploading it multiple times. Karlis (talk) (contribs) 17:32, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
Correct. Give it time for the cache to refresh itself. Purging at the moment doesn't work, but I have spoken with staff about that and they are presently fixing it. You can also read up on some issues we had on another staff's page, User talk:Sannse. 01:43, 7 April 2009 (UTC)
