I Broke The Comment Subscription System For The Last Year

Published Comments (15)

Apparently, when I updated my blog to use Hotwire Turbo, I broke the comment subscription system. That is, I accidentally removed the logic wherein people were automatically subscribed to receive notifications about new comments on posts that they had participated in. I never noticed the break because I always receive notifications (even when I haven't commented on a post previously).

An angry panda destroyed a desktop computer and swipes all contents off the top of a desk. Then stares-down a terrified office employee.

This issue has been fixed. And, I'm working on making the whole subscription system a little more robust (which is how I stumbled upon the mistake in the first place).

My apologies to all the people who never received new comment notifications; and, as a result, didn't get to participate more deeply in the conversation.

TESTING: Yes, I did not get previous notification. But, by leaving this comment, I will be automatically re-subscribed to the post.

I believe in love. I believe in compassion. I believe in human rights. I believe that we can afford to give more of these gifts to the world around us because it costs us nothing to be decent and kind and understanding. And, I want you to know that when you land on this site, you are accepted for who you are, no matter how you identify, what truths you live, or whatever kind of goofy shit makes you feel alive! Rock on with your bad self!
