What archive revision are you testing on? otwarchive v0.9.10.7
A significant number of newly canonized fandom tags are never getting works in their filters (or getting them really delayed). Usually this process gets queued and runs every 7 minutes; sometimes it's not happening at all.
When this bug occurs, the tag appears on the fandoms list of the work creator’s dashboard, but 0 works appear when following that link.
The fandom does appear on the relevant media page, e.g. https://test.archiveofourown.org/fandoms/Movies, with the proper work count, but 0 works appear when following the link.
Sometimes the tags which show no works also will be unable to be canonized/de-canonized, even if they have no visible child tags (canonical tags with child tags cannot be de-canonized by unchecking the canonical box).
I've also seen it happen when making a new fandom tag into a syn of a new canonical (e.g. fandom tag "Fandooooom A" is synned to new canonical "Fandom A", and then the work for "Fandooooom A" doesn't come up under the Fandom A filter.)
