Technical Problems with Comments

Man -- three posts from me in one day. Sorry about that. I wanted to alert you to a possible Blogger problem.

I am not getting all comment notifications by email as I should be. I'm not sure how long this has been going on, but it seems to be just in the last few days. I noticed a whole bunch of comments I hadn't seen arrive in my email when I went back to comment on the This or That comments this morning. (Back to December 1st. It was joy to see new comments, but a bummer that I almost missed them entirely.) I got most, but -- horrors -- not all. Nor does it seem to be those by any one person or another. It's hit or miss. If it persists, I'll go to the bother of trying to figure out how to report it to Google/Blogger.

The other source of the problem could be my Yahoo email. Has anyone else had this problem of late? Your posts might be more popular than you had originally thought!

I had this problem very early on but not lately - it seems to be a cyclical problem, I don't get any notifications of comments, then I get a bunch of them at once. It could be because they have now added the follow-up email option to all comment pages.

Goodnight! I am off to bed to snuggle up away from this cold and blowy England which is all dark and scary!

Thanks for the notification Debi! Went and looked at mine and it turns out that I am not getting all of my comments either. I don't get any comment follow up posts...Hope they sort it soon!

Surprisingly I got all my comments. I've had some comments that didn't get posted. Could be that I didn't get the word verification in but I always (mean) to look for the posted message.

Sorry, just woke up and not coherent . I got that comments that others left for me, but there were some of my comments that I left that didn't seem to get posted.

I have had this problem lately too. I don't know how many comments I've missed, but a few kind folks have written to let me know their message came back with an error. Some of the error comments seem to have been published, so I don't know what's really going on.

I can't comment as I'm not technical.
