I am subscribed to the "Android versions of actual boardgames" geeklist, but I have it configured to notify me on new items, not new comments. So when there's a new item, I get an entry in my "GeekLists" subscription.

Normally, the link to Android versions of actual boardgames points directly to the first new item. However, now it just points to the Geeklist only, making it impossible to determine what the new item is:

As you can see, there is no "#xxxxxxx" (where xxxxxxx would be the item number) in the link.

Not only that, but clicking on the link doesn't register as "reading" the subscription, so it always says, "2 geeklist items".

I've had that happen before. No solution found here so would just end up doing a delete and resubscribe.

I'm having a similar problem with "The first sentence..." Geeklist.

https://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/230479/first-sentence-pag...

It suddenly stopped taking me to the new items, then it showed up in my notifications when there were no new items.
I have since unsubscribed, but it continues to appear in my notifications and never goes away. Even without there being new items.

Even after unsubscribing, you have to click on "[mark read]" to clear it.

That's cleared it. I thought actually visiting the thread would have been enough, but that particular feature wasn't working.
Thanks.

I am now having this problem with the Metaauction list and the December 2017 Solo Games on Your Table Geeklists.

Deleting and re-subscribing should fix it.

Good to know. I will try that after I figure out which entries on SGOYT have comments in response to mine.

When my SGOYT subscription broke in November, I just had to "mark read" on the subscription and it started working again. I didn't have to unsubscribe and resubscribe.

An easy way to see comments in response to your own is to go to: My Geek: Contributions: Comments section: Geeklist Item Comments and just click on your comments there to bring them up.

Yes, that's what I've been doing. It's not fun on a phone. But if that's what we've got then that's what we've got. Marking read has not fixed the issue for me, but hopefully unsubscribing and re subscribing will.

The "Next:" link that brings you to the next subscribed item was still working for me. Once I had 0 new items the subscription worked again without having to mark all read or unsubscribe. That way I didn't miss any items.

Hope this helps.

Unsubscribing and resubscribing worked. Thanks!
