The hostess of Rita and company: Tags 4 U has left and I am now the new host and changing the name of the forum. How long does it take? I changed it over an hr ago and nothing yet. Since the 20 minute rule isn't an option I'm thinking 24 hrs?

It changes on the forum right away but does take longer for the index and the My Forums pages to reflect that. I resubmitted it just in case but I think it'll still take a while. Congrats on the new name!

Just answered my own question. As soon as I posted this the forum turned over. Must take an hr.

I beg to differ with you Kid. It didn't change for me until after an hr.

Then it was me - I used mobile. 
I'll run some tests when I get home later. Which browser did you use?

When a forum is set to Classic, after making changes try switching to Zeta where most changes show immediately, then switch back as desired.

That's not necessary - I am still able to change forum names in classic and have it show on the forum with a refresh. Oh and I meant to say although I used Mobile at Cathys forum I used the Classic Controls - and I only hit the submit button which did not record a change. I think either Chrome Caches pages longer.

Logging in with a different browser I am on a different server(104)  and on my Main Controls page it shows the old name but in the header the new one lol

Most Classic Hosts are not familiar with Zeta Controls and would not want to change their forum even for a few minutes as it leads to confusion with their members.

OK now that I am on a proper keyboard... lol

Where did the name not change for an hour? On the forum (at the top, in the header)? Or in the Index?

Hours have passed and I still see the old name on my My Forums page - Does yours have the old or new one?

Cathy's forum https://forums.delphiforums.com/funsigs/ Still shows and Rita & Company Sigs 4 U on my My Forums page she changed it hours ago. The forum of my own I changed a half hour ago - has already updated on the My Forums page.
