Why do certain bugs take longer than others to be fixed?
Some issues are just that much harder to track down, especially when dealing with code structures as elaborate and complex as the ones we implement. Some issues are easy to spot and can be remedied within minutes of being notified of them, while some of the more complex ones require a bit more time. In some cases there are quick fixes that could be made, but those quick fixes could result in creating other problems that would also need to be addressed. When fixing issues our developers try their best to ensure that the fix put in place is stable and doesn't have any unintentional side affects.
