I submitted data to deviantART, but it did not post. Why?
Along with newly submitted deviations, new favourites additions, forum postings or comments may not always show immediately when servers are overloaded from time to time. The opposite is also true, elements that are supposed to disappear may still appear.
If the problem persists, you may want to check the Status Forum, to see if others are experiencing the same issues. If others are having the same issue, sit tight and it will be worked out as quickly as possible.
If nobody else is having this issue, you may want to try clearing your browser cache. If this step does not help, it's quite possible there is a lag and your information will show up as soon as the lag clears.
