Feed disappeared

The Daring Fireball feed disappeared from my subscription list (username: biocs), and I did not delete it. After a day or two I was wondering what had happened, but for a less voluminous feed I might not have noticed. What’s going on? I have resubscribed, but can you please check the logs what happened?

Looks like my Pollygon feed disappeared too.

I didn’t delete it and there is no log of me deleting it. That’s pretty annoying. I have no way of knowing if I’ve lost other feeds but haven’t noticed yet.

NewsBlur is a great service, but it’s always been a little glitchy.

update:
I resubscribed. That worked fine but I thought it was odd that there was only a few hours of back articles. I looked under feed statistics and it lists only one subscriber. Which I assume is me. There used to be at least hundreds of people following this feed.

So either I typed in the wrong feed, but it still worked for some reason, or EVERY NewsBlur subscriber lost this feed.

Yep, my Daring Fireball feed disappeared too. I don’t think it’s the first time it’s happened, either.

This has happened twice to me over the last few months, both times with the same feed (Gizmodo.)

I had Engadget and 2 others disappear from my Noisytext folder at one point about a year ago. I’ll do some experiments at some point and see if I can recreate the problem with a test feed.

Well, it wasn’t what I thought it was, so it might be a trickier problem to fix. I’ll keep poking at it though.

By today morning Engadget disappeared from my feed list - with my unread articles. Not just from the tree, but also the number of subscribed feeds decreased.

Also strange, when I tried to resubscribe, the correct feed url didn’t show up in the popup menu (http://www.engadget.com/rss.xml), and also after subscribing to this url it says that only 40 subscribers subscribed to this feed - which I think is really a low number.

Same for me when I resubscribed to the Daring Fireball feed: there were only ~50 subscribers, which is also way too low.

The main problem with this is that if the tree is set to show only unread feeds, then if you are not looking for these specific feeds, you won’t even notice that they are missing. So maybe this a more complex problem, just the users don’t notice it.

Exact same problem, with the Gizmodo feed.

+1 - My Engadget feed also disappeared overnight! Had to resubscribe!

@Samuel: the official Engadget feed still has only 49 subscribers, so I’d check that if there were others, who lost their feed, and if it is connected to a bigger problem.

Same here. Gizmodo has disappeared twice.

Lost engadget here sometime in the last day or two

This is the Engadget feed I’ve got: http://www.newsblur.com/site/1498485/…

That source is: http://feeds.engadget.com/weblogsinc/…
From their site the current is: http://www.engadget.com/rss.xml

This isn’t newsblurs problem but sites really need to settle on a single address since theres both http://www.engadget.com/rss.xml which somehow got itself deleted and then http://feeds.engadget.com/weblogsinc/… from samuels link…but theyre the same thing just at different addresses

I lost Gizmodo, Engadget, Autoblog and Techbargains as far as I know.

Gizmodo seems to disappear for me about once a month. It just did it again yesterday.

Gizmodo just disappeared for me now.

I don’t mind a little glitch now and then, but losing my feeds is completely unacceptable.
