LJ Notifications
Is anyone else (other than aingeal8c) having problems with LJ Notifications?

I'm not talking about (for me anyway) Comments, but Notifications as to when someone has posted to their LJ or to a Comm?

I'm getting a quarter of mine, if that.

And those that are coming through are 'weird'. For example, those coming from a community only have 'nakeisha has posted a new entry in !' in the subject line. Whereas until the day before yesterday the name of the community was included (e.g. 'nakeisha has posted a new entry in ncis_gibbsducky!')

And with the personal journal ones although the name of the person who posted in their journal appears in the subject line and in the body or the email, in the body it's no longer a link, i.e. you can't click on it.

Although the lack of knowing to which community someone has posted and the lack of the clickable name is irksome (the former far more so than the latter), what's more annoying is the fact that very, very few are coming through.

I've checked LJ Status and various other LJ Comms, but can't find anything about this. But before I open a Support Request, I thought I'd see if anyone else is having problems, and if so what.


ETA: I have now opened a Support Request for my problem.

Current Mood: irritated irked

Wow, a month? That's a long time.

I know another friend of mine had a problem for several weeks too.

My problem isn't with comment notifications but with the notifications that someone has posted to their LJ/xxx comm.

It must be an LJ 'issue'. Oh, joy.

I'm having a similar problem with comments that folks are making on my own posts or comments - I am being notified of all the comments, but it will say, for example, "nakeisha replied to in which londonronnie said:"

The usual link to my original post or comment is missing which, as you say, is more annoying than anything else. At least I'm still getting them all, unlike you (I hope I'm not tempting fate by saying that!)

Oh and like you, this has been happening for about two days now.

Now that's the problem Aingeal is having too.

I'm not *touches wood and turns around three times* having that problem.

So it does seem there are 'general problems'.

I'm getting all my comment notifications (I think), what I'm not getting are all the notifications when people have posted to their LJ/a comm - you know when you track a post or a person, etc.

Ah. So it is a LJ 'thing'. Well that is good, in a way, at least it's several of us. Hmmm.

Darn LJ!

Thank you for this.

I have that too, but to add to that my Friends List is all out of whack as well. It doesn't show me any recent entries made, only those from a few days ago, so I'm always behind on everything!

So now I'm forced to sludge through my slow, slow LJ in search of new posts such as this one. %D Yes, my LJ has become a slug. And most of the time he doesn't even add my replies. Let's cross fingers and hope he will this time.

Argh, Bon, that's even worse.

I *think* my flist is in order, but without the nice notifications of when people/comms I have tracked, I can't be certain.

What the hell is LJ up to?

Rest assured 'he' did this time - I can see a comment.

I have a gmail notification that a friend posted. I clicked the link and it wouldn't take me there. It was blocked. I tried my friend's list then linked directly from my profile to the journal. There is no post. :-/

When you say 'blocked' did it say 'deleted post' or 'you do not have permission to access the server' or just nothing?

What is going on???

Or it's just another example of what the hell is going on with notifications at the moment.

Well, I'm having problems with update Journal notifications on and off. Sometimes works, sometimes not. So, as I cannot trust LJ is gonna tell me: hey! x updataded her/his journal I did the sensible thing and just watch every single friend journal.
Now, my flist is crowded, but at least I'm sure I'm no losing updates. Well, except if I'm not loggin *laughs*

*Mutters darkly and glares at LJ*

It seems they have now acknowledged there is a problem and are 'working on it'.

I know what you mean - I really do.
aingeal8c From: aingeal8c Date: 13th April 2008 19:51 (UTC) (Link)
Still having the same trouble. Darn it.

I might open up a report request myself yet, though I have seen several already have been so they have to be aware of the problem...

I think I'm getting all mine but I'm not sure.

Still missing the links nad it is beginning to get very tiresome.

Oh LJ.
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 14th April 2008 13:00 (UTC) (Link)

It seems now that they have finally admitted there is a problem - it's on the front page of support request - and they are 'working on it'. But what is odd is that there must be more than one problem.

How annoying, and frustrating.
I was so upset a few months ago when my LJ notifications were blocked from Juno. Both LJ and Juno passed the buck back and forth several times, saying it was out of each's control, and to get the other one to work on the problem.

I hope the problem is resolved soon. Hang in there.

I thought of you when these problems started.

At least LJ are now acknowledging it is a problem.

Thank you - I'm trying ;-)
