I would like to agree... but no. Unless you have an unbelievably slow server, it just shouldn't take any time. Editing your signature does the same executions as making a post. You don't have to wait for your post to show up
I just tested it on my sig and it was instant. It could have something to do with the server it's grabbing the info from, not this one.
You need to test it when adding a new signature. The bug only happens when adding a new signature and may only happen with new member accounts on the forum.
It probably has something to do with the server cache, and the difference between adding a new item vs. editing an existing one.
Follow these steps if your going to test for the bug:
Step 1) New user creates an account on the forum.
Step 2) New user adds a signature.
Step 3) New user immediately posts a new message after adding a signature
Step 4) The signature should not show up in the new message <- bug
That is how the bug works. It is the server cache and the caching of data that causes the bug. Between step 3 and step 4, the server sends cached-data and that cached data doesn't have the signature added yet. If you edit a pre-existing signature, the bug does not occur because the cache behaves differently when editing existing data. Only when adding a brand new signature does the bug occur.
