Same here. Blog updates not showing on the Updates page at all. For quite some time now... they were shown there, once. A LONG TIME AGO. IIRC.

Yeah, I know that it should work, but it doesn't. I don't even recall if it worked when I first joined last year.

I'm tracking several people and I don't see their blog updates at all.

Feillyne, so at one point the blog updates actually showed in the updates page? Interesting.

This more and more is sounding like an unnoticed error that may be caused by a previous update to the website. That or something else that's more transitional.

@Arcones yeah if I remember correctly, was reading iQew's blogs feverishly, months or even years ago, then abruptly they stopped to appear on the Updates list.

And iQew has already 12 pages of blog posts:
Moddb.com

Feillyne, that's pretty weird and it makes me agree with Reqieum that it's perhaps an unnoticed error.

I have to say, the only reason I noticed this problem was because people who wanted to be updated with my blogs weren't and so I ended up using a media update to alert them about the blogs (case in point: Moddb.com). Which is interesting that they would see the media update (video or picture) but not the blog.

Yeah I'm not even sure how my 568 (on average) readers seem to know when I make a post, but they always seem to. Only five of them are tracking me so... explain that as well while you're at it.

The Desura community tab updates with the latest blog as well. Chances are that is where people are coming from. Also Moddb.com

I will look into the tracking not working anymore. TBH I don't track a lot of users unless I need to know something from them. Normally they dont post blogs so I never noticed the error.

Yeah people apparently really like a black version of super-man set during the depression era. Who'd have guessed?

Is this bug (if it is a bug) already fixed? People seem to get updates of blog posts when you delete & undelete them.

It wasn't fixed yesterday. I'm tracking Admiral Skeybar and didn't receive his blog update. The only way I knew it was even their was because I was tracking a group where he posted the media update that went along with his blog...

It is not a pressing issue, it is the EOTFY at the moment. We have other things that need to be attended too before a small fix like this is implemented.

Yeah, actually digging up this thread just to bring the workaround to attention:
you can delete & instantly undelete a blog post (clicking the delete button twice) so watchers can see the new blog post and abuse it in other ways but shhhhh

Okay, that's it. Stop this blatant self-promotion. You should have just started your own thread about your project. Threads are supposed to be about their topic, not just whatever someone wants it to be.

Thankfully, mods have gotten rid of the bugger.
