Book updates don't "take"

This has been going on for a few days now and it's driving me nuts...
I'm going through my books and updating information - adding more relevant tags, taking measures, updating media, updating original names/publishing data to CK, that sort of thing. So, not adding new books (which seems to work fine), just updating the old ones.
With almost all the books, the updates don't "take" properly. I can see the new tags on "your books" list BUT if I go to check 'Book details', new tags, media (paperback or hardcover), From where data, etc. don't show up! Funnily enough, only measurements seem to 'take'...
Also, the updates to CK don't show up on my "your books" list or, if I go again to CK, it is as if I never updated anything.
Refreshing the page(s) doesn't help. I'm using fi.librarything site and Safari.

Mostly, the updates appear out of thin air some 10 minutes - half an hour later. However, it's very annoying as I really can't help *not* trusting the system at the moment and end up rechecking all the updated books the next day. I'm talking about going through hundreds of books...

Is it just me or is something going on? Usually the updates show up immediately.

One example: http://www.librarything.com/work/24044/book/48340888
On Your Books this book (Alistair MacLean, Navaronen tykit) shows 3 more tags but not on Book details or Main page. Also the original title should be seen on the list but isn't.

I'm guessing by the time anyone has had the opportunity to check the example, it's already working nicely, but this recent trend of 15-minute-delay is quite annoying nonetheless :(

>1 Talvitar: You mention this has been happening for days, not just this morning, correct? We did have some server slowness that would have been the culprit today, however, that's an isolated instance. Does this happen every time you make an edit?

If you see this crop up again, can you please take some screenshots of the behavior you're describing? It sounds like a slow connection (possibly on your end) at first glance, but it shouldn't be showing different info in two different places.

There's a lot of info here, but I'm not sure I follow your workflow. Can you tell me step-by-step what you're doing, and where you're making your edits (on Your Books, or Edit Book page?). For the example you've given, I do see the "Original title" in place now.
