I am noticing that I am not getting notifications when new posts / items are showing up on subscribed threads / Geeklists.

Anyone else noticing this?

[Now watch me not realize that you have all responded because my subscriptions aren't triggering . . .]

Same here, though occasionally a subscription will come through.

For the record, this subscription did not trigger. Subscriptions to games appear to still be working.

I seem to be in that boat as well, at least for threads.

Same, saw on the front page that there were new posts, but no subscription.
I did get a notification for a file subscription though.

EDIT: Geeklist subscriptions seem to trigger as well.

My subs are definitely buggy today. Some I don't get at all. Some I get and the page will say there is 1 reply, but then when I pull it up, there are 5 or 6.

This one triggered a subscription for me. In general it seems to be back to normal for now.

I've been suddenly getting geeklist notifications when nothing has been added (I have items selected). And the notification link(s) does not go to any alleged new item either, just to the base geeklist url.

The first one could be explained by edits to a geeklist item since that will trigger item subscriptions.
However, that would still go to that specific item and highlight it in red, just as if it was new.

Did you try to manually scroll through the geeklist and see if any items are highlighted? I've had it happen where I didn't end up automatically at the item due to images loading and screwing with the list length.

EDIT: And while I'm here: Most subscriptions seem to work, but I've noticed a few posts in threads that I was subscribed to that didn't trigger notifications.

The one that's recently problematic is 30 pages so I definitely didn't, just skimmed the last page or two looking for the red box.

Neither of the notifying URLs (left column or center column) went to an item, they were the same, just the base geeklist address. So the notification system doesn't seem to know where the triggering item is.

Was the header edited maybe? I'm not sure if that would trigger the subscription, but since edited items do it might too.

Just got a dozen notifications for new images in various games, but thread subscriptions seem to be totally dead for now.

Over a week and not even a "we're looking into it" response from a BGG admin?
They must be busy counting all of the pledge money.

Whereas mine have been working as expected since soon after I initially posted.

Squeaky wheel . . . ?
