I made a map update over 24 hours ago that basically corrected the name of a stretch of trail. The change appeared to take effect almost immediately, except at 1 particular zoom level from my Mac, I see the old trail name. I tried it in another browser, and the exact same thing. On my phone and iPad it looks fine. Can anyone explain? Do I just need to wait longer, or is there a problem with my edits?

To test what I am seeing:

This is almost certainly a caching issue. Your browsers are showing you old tiles.

Thanks. I can believe it is a caching issue, but I'm not clear where. I am seeing it in two separate browsers, and I cleared cache in Chrome with no change.

I also saw mention in the link you shared about an "overload in the re-rendering queue" could cause a delay up to a few days. I am curious if anyone can test my second link (ideally on a Mac) to see which trail name appears.

I see Indian Creek Trail at all zoom levels that display trail names (with Chrome/Windows not on a Mac as you asked).

Wherever the bottleneck was, it finally cleared. Now working for me! Thanks for the response.
