Are efforts being made to fix Notifications?

I don't see it on the main list, but Notifications from forum posts linked to a wiki page have been broken for days now. Is that not a top priority?

I'm sure yall are working hard; I just haven't seen an update on how it's going.

Same here, didn't see anything about this in the first post. Really annoying especially if you don't get the notification right away and then have to dig for what someone said to you.

It was discussed this morning and I know it's on the radar. Hopefully it'll be fixed soon.

Hey @rorie, any idea when the home page forum updates will be fixed?

How close are you guys on getting forum search back up and running? And status updates? My status has been stuck on something I said in the middle of a fit of frustration for weeks now.

Anyways, good luck on fixing things, I'm sure it's really stressful and I hope you guys can get things stabilized soon!

May I ask as to why shit keeps breaking? Twitter I understand, kind of (they change something on their back end, making it incompatible with your integration code, yada yada yada) but why would "recent posts" keep disappearing? Does it have something to do with an upcoming site redesign perhaps?

Also, in regards to Twitter, how is it that when it did work for a few days it was stuck on updates from 10 months ago? That's hell random...

Do aliases work for anybody else? I tried searching for FF12 by typing as much, but nothing came up.

#59 Posted by dudeglove (8947 posts) -

Maybe a bunch of other people are getting this too - clicking on forum reply notifications e.g. "Sweep mentioned you in a comment" takes you to the wiki page of the forum subject itself. Happens on safari on iPad and chrome on windows. Not sure if it applies to General Discussion and Off Topic which don't have wiki pages (at least I hope they don't).

I just tried myself, and you're right, aliases appear to be broken. That, and the forums are lagging behind now as well. But hey, at least the staff twitter feed is back up!!!

@yummylee:

Don't forget blog notifications being borked. And galleries.

#63 Posted by Yummylee (23178 posts) -

@video_game_king: I already mentioned that in my first post in the thread, along with how lists and user-review notifications also don't work, either.

#64 Posted by Video_Game_King (36567 posts) -

@yummylee:

But the weird thing is that it's happening recently/selectively now. I got @generic_username's blog just fine, but @mento's Japan blogs will not show up.

#65 Posted by Generic_username (680 posts) -
#66 Edited by Yummylee (23178 posts) -

@video_game_king: Well, I personally haven't received any notifications beyond replies in quite some time now. Sometimes a blog/list/review will at least show up on my followed user feed, but whether or not there'll actually be a link that can help me navigate to it is always up in the air.

EDIT: Also, videos will no longer resume from where you left off if the video is closed for one reason or another. Just another something else to add to the list... The state of the site and how long it's been going on for now has frankly only further validated my decision to unsubscribe.

#67 Edited by Rapid (1440 posts) -

Looks like I can edit my own reply posts but not the opening post of a topic I create/own?

Hopefully it gets fixed soon, I found it very useful to be able to edit the opening post of topic (for updating purposes) especially if it's grown to be a large topic. No one really reads the consecutive posts.

For instance when I do updates to the Giant Bomb Warframe PC Clan journal or the PC Clan Updates it's nice to be able to update the first post with the most recent activity or news.

#68 Posted by Chaser324 (6922 posts) -

What happens when someone posts to your wall? I have a notification from several days ago about someone making a post, but as far as I can tell, there's nowhere to actually read it.

Not sure if this is a currently known bug but news articles aren't showing up as the first post in the forums, namely the Persona 5 news Patrick wrote. I clicked on it and all I saw was this:

Also, when I did click on the actual article, there were apparently 3,000+ comments and the earliest ones date back as far as 2009.

I'm assuming those comments are from every thread within the tagged forum pages and collated into this one article.

In chrome on Android, I can't click the navigation menu in a wikipage and see images, forums, etc.The icon gets highlighted, but no menu appears that I can see.

EDIT: Reproducible in chrome on WIndows 8 (so, you know, Chrome), as well as Firefox. I'm assuming other browsers as well. It seems clicking the element labeled

<i class="icon icon-reorder btn btn-mini btn-inverse"></i> just doesn't do anything currently.

Same here, it's the same with any page with that same sub-nav. It's been a while so an update would be nice. The Javascript might not be wired properly or something.

#71 Posted by icybankz (55 posts) -

Am i the only one who is not getting any Updates in the Summary page from the pages i have followed? Because i am sure that i checked the pages and there were new topics...

#73 Posted by Mento (3094 posts) -

Yo, not sure if this has been logged but adding images to a wiki page does weird things to the purported total number of images. Specifically, every new image is counted twice for the total you can see in parentheses on the image tab.

#74 Edited by Yummylee (23178 posts) -

Specifically editing 'Credits' on wiki game pages seems to always throw up an error notice. Fortunately I can at least still edit people page's credits, but of course that extra hassle shouldn't be necessary. Plus, editing people credits always requires that you specifically enter the credits section rather than allowing to add games via the main page, unlike say character pages for example.

Also, while the return of some actual timestamps on your profile feed is welcome, the time appears to run under what I assume is the PT timezone.

#75 Posted by Yummylee (23178 posts) -

And now profile feeds no longer appear to update...

#76 Posted by MikeFightNight (1129 posts) -

I can't edit any of my original posts? I really need to edit a weekly tournament thread I created with new info for people but it's not possible atm. Does everyone have this bug? Any idea on when this will be fixed?

#77 Edited by Nightriff (6016 posts) -

Anyone else having issues with notifications where you get one when you are tagged in a post and then that post not showing up for large amounts of time? Happened to me yesterday when Patrick responded to me in the BitAM video and just now with the Binding of Issac video. In just these two cases it seems to only affect forums off videos but I really don't know.

EDIT: I've actually been responded to 3 or 4 times in the video and no new posts

Yea, I've been getting this on and off.

Also, still waiting on the "cross posting blogs to game pages" bug to be fixed.

Thanks for providing the workaround. Hopefully, the original, easier method on the game credits pages is sorted out soon for all us credits hobbyists.

Just noticed something strange about this bug:

  • Searching for a board does work; it just doesn't work for boards attached to wiki pages.
  • Holy shit, we have more boards than we knew about. And not even the Moderator-Only board; shit like Artist Show-Off, Battles, Contests, and other shit I don't think I've ever seen. Anybody wanna test this to see if these boards work?

JESUS CHRIST! @mrpibb! @rorie! Anybody! I was just able to add a new character to a game (entirely new character), and I was able to edit the type of credit someone had for a game on the game's credits page!!!

#82 Edited by icybankz (55 posts) -

This has been annoying me for quite a while. New topics on pages i'm following are not being updated in my profile. Is this a bug or am i missing something...

#83 Posted by villainy (638 posts) -

It would be nice to get an update to this post from @mr_pibb since we're over 3 weeks since the OP. I imagine that could be weird since as far as I know the "can't edit original posts" bug is still a factor. I understand how difficult this stuff can be but it would be nice to hear any update.

#84 Posted by mrpibb (477 posts) -

@villainy: yup, I'll be updating it soon, just been doing a bunch of work so haven't had time to sit down really.

@homeslice: working right? we fixed it, just hadn't had time to update everybody.

Is chat only for premium members now? The past few free live streams, Bombin the AM, Poster Signing and the current Titanfall livestream I've been met with a 'You are not logged in' message when I am. It doesn't seem like a problem for everyone as I can see in the top left counter '117 Chatting' although '0 Watching' so maybe the chat is just still busted.

I know that emotes are for subs only now so maybe chat is now too? *shrugs*

*Edit*

Okay, now its saying minus numbers for people chatting so maybe chat is just busted after all, that non-premium paranoia.

Haha, I think those are ComicVine boards, or at least, I know they exist over there.

Just a small thing but I noticed sometimes when editing a wiki page and searching for a franchise or concept to add it will bring up games instead.

#96 Edited by Yummylee (23178 posts) -

After playing Dark Souls II incessantly for like 2 days, I came back to find that bloody everything is broken again... The posting troubles have at least been ironed out, but notifications appear to once again be busted. >_> At least regarding blogs/lists/reviews ect.

So it seems that uploading images to pages is broken right now? They all end up with an outline, but the image is not there.
