    I turned off varnIsh. Varnish used to be our quick fix to having little resources to rendering the wiki, so it would cache pages with out hitting php. This caused page view stats to become grossly inaccurate, and various cache issues, which would cause unregistered users to see a stale version of a page for a long while after we changed it. Over the past few days, we have updated our backend servers and acquired more hardware which should be able to handle our load, and allow us to scale in the future. Yeah, we're putting your donations to good use.

    - Thanks guys <3

    Was this also the cause of pictures still showing the old version after uploading a new one?
