About 10 of my instagrams, well-prepared for Pixoto competition haven't appeared on Pixoto.

Assuming that there's no option to submit them manually, what can I do to submit them?

Should there be a profile button like "refresh my instagrams"? You could save a watermark in a user's profile and allow to refresh their feed in case of IS API outages.

Otherwise it is sad.

I think you may have been :(

That said - we've changed our Instagram submission policies. Please see:

If that doesn't work for you let us know.

Thanks, Jason!

I tried to post four images recently. Two first uploads were successful, the other two weren't.

P.S. Adding the tag requirement is a smart move indeed. Special thanks for that.

Dear Jason,

What is the refresh interval for Instagram feeds? Is it supposed to call back something on your servers and that should be immediate?

I gather, you must be using realtime callbacks of Instagram API. So if image hasn't appeared immediately it won't appear at all.

Yes. That's correct. Instagram notifies us when you upload an image so if our server doesn't get it in realtime it's not going to.

We've found Instagram's api to be fairly buggy and sometimes just doesn't work for some people. Doesn't seem to be rhyme or reason to it...
