Missing contact's most favorited posts on sidebar but not elsewhere. August 11, 2010 8:22 PM   Subscribe

My front page contact sidebar is no longer showing posts by contacts that have received the threshold of 12+ favorites, plus other odd behavior.

If I click on All Activity I can see that people have been getting picked up by the system for getting 12+ favorites. It's making it into All Activity, but somehow it's not going from there to the front page sidebar.

When I first noticed this all my checkboxes for the various filters on the All Activity page were all checked. None were unchecked. I started messing around with them trying to suss out a pattern. I tried unchecking Favorites, clicking Filter, and it did as expected, it filtered the Favorite notes. I checked Favorites to reenable them, and clicked Filter, and... the favorites are still gone! :(

Now after screwing with the checkboxes some more, leaving, and coming back hours later and screwing with them again, I can finally see my contact's comments that have been favorited more than 12 times. On my All Activity page. I still can't see them on my front page contact activity sidebar.

It's doing this on 2 different computers, one Win7 64 and one Ubuntu 10.4, in IE8 and FF 3.6.8 and 3.6.7.

Here is my frontpage contact activity sidebar. Note the lack of "UserX had a comment with 13 favorites in Metafilter."

Here is what I get when I click on All Activity at the bottom of the contact activity section of the sidebar. There are such notifications there.

Here is a screenshot of my contact activity page with Favorites checked, with no favorites notifications visible when they should be.

Thanks for the detailed bug report. Tracked it down and everything should be working again.
