Clearly it did, because after a while the advice changed to horizontal only. I've had mine since they first were released, and have had no problem with any of them drying out, not any issue with tips and nibs.
It could the difference in humidity but my other markers are stored in the same place and they aren't drying out. I've had some of my markers for 10 years and they are still juicy. It does get hot here in No. California so I would think all my water-based markers would dry out. I store all my markers horizontally because it just makes more sense that I don't want the ink to flow to one specific end.

Leah, glad to help you save some $$ - I'm usually an enabler : )
