"new" link disappears in grey but not blue or green April 20, 2006 11:50 PM   Subscribe

Why does the "new" link disappear once I've refreshed the page on the grey but not o the blue or green?

I've seen that the new link in MeFi and AskMeFi only changes once every 20mins. Why is it different here? And what's the reason for this? It might be somewhat ADD of me, but I'd prefer the new link to change everytime I refresh.

you know, i don't think taping sack hair to your head is such a bad idea.

that said, this new link problem really needs to be resolved.

kechi, I think Matt has said that he generates a static front page every n minutes to reduce server load.

Actually, I've noticed the problem as well, and haven't spent time looking into it yet, but yeah it's weird and I don't know why that is.
