I edited the summaries for the most recent episodes of Survivor to something less generic but these edits are not visible to readers. Given one edit was made last week, this isn't a time delay issue.

In short, the backroom process formerly referred to as "publishing", whereby edits made are subject to a short delay prior to becoming visible across the site, has stopped. There have been no updates since Thursday 5 October. I can track this with some precision as I have been making a handful of edits each day to a particular show guide. Those made before I went to bed were published in near real time. Those made since then have not been published.

One might hazard a guess that whatever switch is generally thrown before staff pack up for one of TV.com's traditional four-day weekends has not been switched back.

Longer than that...edits I have made Monday and Tuesday have yet to become visible on the pertinent guides. If I was to hazard a guess, the techs were at work, turned off the publishing option, finished their work and never bothered to turn the option..or what you indicated. Sad :(

Those delays are the "time delay" issue.

Hi,

Can you give me a specific example of an episode you changed where the change isn't showing on the site? Thanks!

in case you need another example: I submitted trivia about the title of the episode for a Supergirl episode that was approved by the editor several days ago but isn't showing up.

Trivia & Quotes also aren't publishing. Only Editors can see Quotes that are present by going to the reordering tool. But for those who can see and with a little URL finagling:

This episode shows the generic version to readers and the replaced version only if you click the Edit button.
