IMP NOTE: 'View/Edit Badges' page allows escape without saving changes.

+5 votes
After I make a change to badges (the order of display, or which ones to be hidden), how long should it take for my change to become effective?  Moments? Hours? Days?

0.0 seconds if you don't have problem with your browsers cache settings....

0.0 seconds If you click on "SAVE"

Forever and a day if you don't hit save....    :D

Oh.  Ha, ha.

I understand now.  UNLIKE WT's other edit-able pages -- which require a personal okay if a user tries to leave the page without saving their changes -- the View/Edit Badges page does not provide that protection.

I'm glad to know that.  I will upgrade this question to an IMP NOTE, on the grounds that inconsistency does not adhere to the Principle of Least Surprise.

Thanks for your comments.
