: I checked that link, and you were right! the date was erroneous. However, I fixed it by performing a [[Wikipedia:Help:Dummy_edit#Null_edit|"null edit"]]. A null edit is when you open the edit page, and save it without making any changes at all. It forces the wiki to update itself, or something, and it worked on my screen. It should be fixed for you, right?

: Whenever someone tinkers with a template, I'm the loser that goes around null editing everything it links to here, most recently with Simon's work on the DVD template. Without forcing the wiki to update, problems like the one you've found crop up! (also the What Links Here stays outdated.) {{User:Blue Rook/Sig}} 06:52, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

:: thanks for solving that problem! Or rather: providing a workaround. Seems to be a server sided cashing problem, indeed. So I'm gonna null edit the pages when the problem occurs in the future. Otherwise it's too misleading when the edit date is always wrong. I wonder why others don't have that problem, too? [[User:B. harder|B. harder]] 16:58, 30 December 2008 (UTC)
