Default "My Subscriptions" problem

Hi there,

Today I noticed that ALL my subscriptions are gone. Both subscriptions on the post level as on the forum level are gone?

Did something go wrong?

Cheers,

Imar

Well...

There have been no changes that would affect your subscriptions and other people's subscriptions seem unaffected.

So I'd have to guess you either did something (I don't know what), or there is some bug that affects subscriptions.

Either way, any details of what you might have done recently regarding subscriptions would be helpful.

It would seem unlikely that a bug could affect (and delete) the subscription records. The subscriptions are stored as individual records in a database table. The "bug" would have to repetitively affect multiple records.

Ah, I see.

I am not sure what I have done just before they were gone. Just one day I noticed none of them were there. AFAIK, there isn't a Unsubscribe All button, is there? That would be the only thing that can cause all the subscriptions to disappear. I was subscribed to over 200 topics, and I can't imagine I removed them all by hand without remembering ;)

Thanks for looking into this. I'll keep an eye on it and let you know if and when it happens again.

Regards,

Imar

Same here. This has happened twice to me now, since late 2004.
