Even after a refresh, I noted that my newest Meta question did not appear in the "Active" thread, but did appear in the "Hot" thread immediately after posting, even with only one view. Are these two threads swapped on the meta site? I haven't noticed this on the main site, but it could be happening there as well.
The "Active" thread now seems to have updated after a few minutes of keeping an eye on it. What could have caused this?
