I didn't think that this could happen!

I've been doing a fair bit of work recently to improve my signature set for 1 Oz silver bullion coins. One of the things I did was to go back and replace the images of the Australian lunar silver dollars that I had. Some of them hadn't been imaged at all. The ones that had been imaged all looked pink. It was a combination of lighting and a color balance problem. I had uploaded the images anyway because I had nothing better at the time. The new images had better white balance and looked nicer IMO.

Well, because this is easier to do, I went into the "Edit Gallery" tab for my competitive lunar dollars set and changed out the pictures there. I never bothered to actually check the gallery of the signature set, just the competitive set. I assumed that they'd be the same. Well... apparently not! I decided to look at the signature set gallery today just for fun and behold! I see pink!

I couldn't understand this at all. I thought maybe it was just an old thumbnail image that was still cached because I knew I had changed the pictures! But no! To make sure I wasn't crazy I immediately went to check the competitive set and see how it looked (had I really forgotten?). There were no pink pictures to be found. Only the new ones. My thoughts were along the lines of: "What the hell! I really am going crazy!"

Well, as it turns out, the coins that had no pictures before were fine; the pictures went on the coin for both sets and they're the same for both sets. The ones that already had pictures still have the pink pictures showing on the signature set. The website didn't replace them for the sig set when it did so for the competitive set (silly me for assuming it would). As it stands, most of my lunar dollars actually have 2 sets of pictures assigned to them. If you reach the "coin details" page through the competitive set then you see the new, better images. If you reach the "coin details" page from the signature set then you get the older, pinker pictures. I'm going to leave it like this for a few days just so everyone can check to see that I'm not lying. The effected coins include the horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog, pig, and ox.

I'm stunned. I never thought that this could happen.

Let's see if I can get some direct linking to work:
