    Uploaders: We made a small change to how tags subscription notices get sent out when uploading wallpapers. There will now be a 30 minute delay from when you tag your uploading walls to when the subscriptions will show up for users. Before, the notices were getting sent out as you tagged them leaving a gap in time between uploads getting completed and some users checking their subscriptions.

    I know this isn't ideal (notices should get sent out when uploads are finalized) but for now, hopefully this will prevent some of your uploads getting cleared out of users subscriptions before they even show up!
