I don't know if it happened to other people, but my cake pictures lately did not appeared in the scrolling pictures on the home page, and also I see that the same cake pictures scroll for hours!! too bad ! a little disappointed with that...I don't know why...Can't be just my computer! I hope.
Sometimes that happens. If lots of people are uploading at the same time then it happens. Also, lately people have been mentioning that the front page was getting stuck on the same pictures for hours.
Don't worry, your cake will still get looked at. If someone wants to look at all the recent uploads, there's an option for that in the gallery section. Some of my cakes have never gotten on the front page (and sometimes I forget to even look) and they all still end up getting looked at.
