I think Press F1 lets to let people know that there is a DELAY before their new message will appear on the site. I know it says 'within 15mins' somewhere on the front page, but obviously not everyone reads that......

It used to be flashing in neon pink with animated chickens dancing around it but people never read it then either.

Be patient. I have massacred a few tonight to bring it under control.

I would have suggested a 'pop up' that appeared when you hit the Post button saying something like 'your posting is being processed. to veiw remember to refresh the page'. Unfortunately anyone reading your good magazine would have third party software to stop pop-ups. Oh well.

The animated chickens never really worked, they only made me hungry.

yes I went through that, and like a typcal human just ignored the instructions and went on banging away. maybe could say next to the 'Post' button on the posting page 'This will take 15 mins to appear.'
