Following topics will randomly unfollow

Posted by ~Shockwave~ on Nov 16 2012 - 07:13 PM

as I, and several other members have noted, the following feature is unreliable.
when used in a topic that is checked a lot (in my experience.) it will unfollow it for no apparent reason.
it has happened in topics I do not check often. but it's not as consistent.

I know there was a topic in Q&A about this a while back, and I talked to the developers of the software about it at one point, but they didn't have any insight at the time. If we can find some examples of where this is happening though, it might help.

Does it only happen in topics you've started? In topics you've replied to? In topics you haven't replied to? Things like that can all help.

This often happens to me after posting on mobile, and that was also a reported cause, so idk

typically, I only follow topics I have posted in. so I can't say for sure on that. And it has never happened in topics I have started, but I don't start very many, and they don't usually last long.
It happens in TF: Alignment a lot, that's a topic I was very active in for quite a while. but has only happened In Bionicle Fighter once... I think. I'm not there nearly as often.

I think it is a mobile site issue. I haven't had a problem with it since I switched out some of my hardware and stopped using that.

Back when I did use the mobile site, it was a common occurrence. Usually the topic would unfollow right after I posted.

I no longer use the mobile site. and it hasn't happened that I can think of. but I also don't sit on a topic for days and reply every five minutes. so not sure. could be it. but I don't know.

like I said, it really only happened in alignment and I would typically have that open for days and just shut my laptop when I wasn't actively playing.

Those of you experiencing this - are you using the mobile site in your browser or the dedicated Invision iOS app?

It was the mobile site in my browser.

This issue has been documented by Invision and should be fixed in the next release.

Please check and see if this is still occurring now that we've upgraded.

I havn't noticed it. and I got the mobile browser working, so if that does have anything to do with it, it hasn't unfollowed me. so
i'm going to say it's fixed.

Excellent. I think we can close this.
