MSDN forums alert notification is working slow

    General discussion

  • Hello,

    Is MSDN forums alert notification is working slow?

    I am experiencing some issue on email alert, As per my MSDN account setting I have checked the below option,

    "Always alert me by default when I post"

    It was working fine till Sunday i.e. December 6th, but from Monday i.e. December 7th I am facing delay in email notification when any user respond on the same thread that I subscribe. 

    Is anyone experiencing same issue?


    Thanks,

  • So MSDN developers are working on it or anyone have notice this issue from Microsoft technical support team?

    I reported this to the forums team on Monday, but I haven't gotten a response back yet. The activity will eventually show up, but it's currently delayed by 4-24 hours.

    I don't use the email alerting, but others have noticed this as well. I'm not sure if this has been directly reported to the forums team. You can do that by sending an email to fissues (at) microsoft [dot] com.

  • Profile activities are late getting updated by several hours (up to maybe 12) for several days now. Also, spam flagged as abusive is not getting deleted (and the accounts banned), which may be related. There have been hundreds of spam threads in the last few days.

  • It is not just late. When I reply to a thread, it will notify me for all past replies as well.

    Activities not being updated, awards not showing up.

    I have e-mailed fissues, with no response.

    Yes correct. I have faced same issue. When I respond to new thread then after 4 to 6h received notification of thread with original questions.. really it's weird. I sent a mail to fissues (at) microsoft [dot] com but still didn't received any update.

  • Still having same issue. And Today experiencing another issue, When I replied to any thread then generally it comes on top with my latest reply on MSDN forum, but it is not happening today. I replied to one thread and it shows alert icon but not coming on top thread and also my reply is not showing as Last reply.

    Anyone experiencing the same issue?

  • The thread lists are frozen as of about 7 hours ago. I just sent in an email to fissues to notify them, but we'll see...

    The RSS feeds are still working normally, so you can keep up using that method for the time being.
