Followers issue

  1. I'm having the exact same issue as @conrad72

    Everytime I get a new follower one of the oldest ones drop off and another page of followers cannot be created it seems.

  2. Update: I too am now having Conrad's and Maychau's issue. My first 5 WP followers have dropped off. On top of that, I still have the problem of the counter's not keeping up with my latest WP subscribers (short by 5 as of now) so that I am now short 10.

  3. Good morning everyone! Anything new happen while I was gone?

    Seriously though, the stats guys are looking into this, I promise. It's a problem, we're aware of it and the solution will be found.

    I'll keep updating here as I know more (or at least to let you know you haven't been forgotten).

    Hello, I am jumping on here too. Had 224 followers last night and 247 today, but can only see less than 10 new names & their blog URLs in my stats.

    I thought I would just add my site to this thread. aopinionatedman.com is also experiencing this... except I really can't tell you how many followers I should be at.

    It has been stuck at 23,762 followers for awhile now, which is definitely not correct. Thanks for the support, -OM

  6. Just adding my sites to report that I'm having the same issue with both of them.

  7. Hello everyone.

    As you can see, the followers aren't updating properly. We're still looking into it. Rest assured, your followers are not lost. It is a stats display issue rather than a data loss issue.

    Thank you rootjosh.

  9. I'm not sure this is the same problem, but I have stopped getting notifications from wordpress or storylinecreations (name of blog) about the current post. Used to always get several email notifications when a post was published, but so far, nothing (published yesterday). I've checked my email account--no problems there. Thank you.

    My follower count appears to have corrected itself. I hope! It now shows 23,778. Thanks for the great support rootjosh and timekeeper.

    OR timethief... heh. Oops!

  13. Mine is now up to date too, thank you! Your efforts are appreciated. Here's hoping the count now updates correctly going forward. Cheers!

  14. Mine is still stuck at the old number.....

  15. @Rootjosh,
    I saw about nine hours ago that the first of my followers who'd been bumped off were recovered. The Stats were now accommodating all my readers by adding another page as needed. But though my earliest subscribers were accounted for, I was back to the original issue: my WP aggregate remained sluggish and was still short by 1. Now, by 2. And again the gap widens with time. My WP counter (as opposed to Tumblr and email followers count) does not seem to be picking up readers who tap to follow by email. I try not to run tangents into other issues but in case this ends up a clue for you: months back, at the time my follower count was sluggish, I stopped getting email notification of followers who subscribe by email. If you'd like, I can dig up the old thread where I discussed both issues but Staff basically attributed this disappearance to a problem with my email function and the counter issue to people unsubscribing. Here, the proof of problem is in the simple manual count at 20 readers per Stats page vs the TOTAL listed on top of my Stats list.

    "Rest assured...it is a stats display issue rather than a data loss issue." Not quite, for me. My WP counter is not keeping up with the display of subscribers. Thanks.

  16. Thanks, dipumpkin. Good to know this isn't my imagination. Trying not to stress, but the situation is frustrating. I am sure the problem is not with my email function.

  17. Just wanted to let you know that we deleted our cache and followed the other directions, all to no avail. Our followers counter is still stuck at 33.

  18. The dev elves are working their magic.

    Keep an eye on your numbers and I will read reports that anyone posts. I may not take any action for a bit because I need to see how things are shaking out for everyone before I report back.

    I appreciate everyone's patience. I know how important stats are to us all.

  19. Rootjosh...makes us feel better to hear even this much from you. We'll work with Staff; we just want to know someone cares and that we're on your radar.

  20. That's why I have tried to keep posting regularly on this thread. It's not much fun for me to say "Still got nothing, we're working on it". But at least I can make sure you all don't feel forgotten.

  21. rootjosh and timethief, I know we all really appreciate your responsiveness. Thanks for checking back and reporting.

    None of my followers are receiving emails when I post. Are you sure it isn't related to this problem? Very frustrating. I started another thread, but no one from staff has looked at it.

    A different problem. In addition, I want to keep this thread focused on the followers issue so that the people who are waiting on time when I can make a "all fixed!" post won't get sidetracked.

    It is also much easier for me to keep track of error reports and problems when a thread stays on one topic. Thanks.

  24. Speaking of "all fixed", sadly, I can't say that yet. I do know that some people are reporting improvements. But it may not be EVERYONE as of yet. The guys are still working.

  25. Still having follower count issues. Any solution on the horizon?

  26. My number of Facebook followers is incorrect; is always 1 off, it seems.

  27. @Rootjosh, echoing Editorite I wanted to confirm that yes, since I stopped getting email notification of WP followers (not readers who come from Tumblr or outside WP and subscribe by email) months back my WP follower count has been lagging. It in fact looks like it's not picking up WP followers who tap to subscribe by email, so there's a disconnect where my blog is not fully receiving the email subscription message from WordPressers. The gap between reported total and actual will widen throughout the day and it seems that when I chk in the morning it narrows back to a difference of 1. The closest the count has gotten these months is when it would fall short by 1. Thanks for chkg in with us.

  28. While many of us work a bit on the weekend, it is still the weekend. Which tends to cause delay. I will check in with the dev team and see if I can learn anything new tomorrow (monday) morning.

  29. @Rootjosh, my stats list once again has bumped off the first of my WP followers (this time 3, so that they are not recorded in the count). The total # is at the moment short on 4 more (meaning, it's not accounting for the last four email followers who show on the list), and has not updated my two most recent Tumblr followers who came on board on the 18th. I did not mention these two over the wknd because the Staff woman (who just kept saying a few months back that my numbers declining meant readers were unsubscribing) said it takes about two days for Stats to catch up with Tumblr. It's been 5 days.

    As of now, very first 3 + last 4 WP followers who subscribed by email + 2 Tumblr = 9 that I am short by.

  30. I'm still missing the followers who mysteriously disappeared. Any update on this?
