Am I the only one who's new SoH polls for the night have completely disappeared from the app?

I have noticed a huge reduction in polls. Usually if I am gone for a day, I will come back to 400 to 600 polls. Now it's under 200.. Heck.. It's under 100 a good majority of the time. I don't understand why.

I'm seeing way more polls than 100. Haven't counted them but it's a ton.

Unread? Since I posted this, I have only gained 88 unanswered polls. So.. Out of the 4700 people I'm following, there were less than 100 questions asked? That's very atypical for before the update, but typical for after.

The amount of unread polls for me have been significantly reduced unfortunately. Maybe I need to unfollow and refollow users?

Yeah, that doesn't sound quite right. I'm following about 770; I'm sure a lot of them don't post polls. I think I get a couple hundred a day. I don't know what to tell you - I suspect that since you follow such a large number you were probably a...

....bit more vulnerable to the "data transfer weirdness" that hit some people in small ways, but still...

I'll report it to Tony, at any rate.

Thank you, and that would be a pain on the servers switch.

That happened but it remedied itself

I'm still seeing them. The only one I noticed has gone missing was Tony's from earlier about the ESPN returning servicemen video.

Go out, see "Polls" at top of page, click and reset all categories

That's a great suggestion EB! On the iPad it's called "Categories". Make sure the appropriate ones are checkmarked.

If you have an iPhone, it happens when you tap the "new" polls tab. Sometimes the "polls" button gets hit by mistake.

Tony posted a message somewhere today or yesterday (the days flow together) saying that Categories had gotten messed up for some people in the 2.0 -> 2.1 transition, & suggested people check them or reset if they had problems...

...but if you've been seeing SOH polls for a few days, it doesn't seem right that they'd get messed up *now.* Unless something else is going on. Ugh.

I literally backed out of one of the new polls and they were all gone.

So when you looked at the Categories list, what was it like? Any unchecked? All unchecked? Is there even one for SOH polls (I didn't think so)?

I imagine Tony will see your poll, but I'll mention it anyway.

OK, thanks, I'll add that.

That's freaky.
