    Why is it that no matter what Jerry and Mary's house blogs are always listed as the most recent posted? I don't blog a ton, but no matter what, their blog is ALWAYS on the top. I don't mind that they blog every day. That's cool, but do they ALWAYS have to remain on the top of the blog list? That gives the rest of us less time on the main page. Just wondering. I like people to check out my blogs, pages and pics, but most of the time, people only check out what is shown on the main page...and theirs is ALWAYS on the top. Why is that so?

    PS Even the CEO of motortopia does not trump them from that spot!

    Jerry and Mary are the most prolific bloggers on Motortopia. The main page is cached, meaning it's built once by the server, then a copy is kept on hand to give to anyone visiting the main page. After 15 minutes the old copy of the main page is deleted, and then it's rebuilt the next time someone visits the main page. Jerry and Marry just seem to be in sync with the cache schedule of the main page. smile image

    We've got a few projects ahead of us, and one of them is taking a look at ways to improve blogs on Motortopia. Suggestions are always welcome.

    They can't be...that would mean sitting in front of the computer constantly. I posted my blog a matter of less than 5 minutes before the "cached" page was deleted and rebuilt...yet they remained #1. They don't update their blog every 15 minutes. I know they blog a lot and that's great, but there's got to be a way to give other's their time on the page. I am serious and not exaggerating when I say that they are ALWAYS on the top. I've been paying closer attention to it the last couple weeks. I'm on motortopia multiple times per day. They are always there at the top.

    Maybe one suggestion should be time of original blog. Edits should not change the time of the blog post. I don't know that this is what they are doing, but again, every 15 minutes? I really don't think so. I believe there to be some type of glitch in the system that is allowing them to be at the top all the time.

    I suggest you keep an eye on it. You will notice that no matter what, they are always on the top. Anyone else blogs, they are automatically #2 on the list. Try it yourself. You even have the benefit of timing it so it is posted just before the new cached is loaded. You will see that no matter what, they stay on the top.

    Thanks for the fix. I suspected some type of glitch all along. You guys are great when it comes to fixing things on this site. Keep up the great work!
