At least I'm not the only one.

I'm having the opposite issue.

The last couple of days, my And-1 counter seems to be incrementing faster than I can account for based on the notifications I am getting, and the and-1's that show on recent posts.

I suppose it's possible that there are older posts of mine somewhere picking up and-1s rapidly all of the sudden for some reason, but it sure seems suspicious.

Well, there are some crazy posters on this forum who just like to And1 absolutely everything. Today when I logged in there's some guy named Sippy who is literally And1'ing everything on the Raptors board. Got literally around 100 notifications this morning about him clicking And1 to my posts. So maybe you have someone just as crazy on your board.

I edited my previous post - I figured it out.

Every and-1 I give to someone else is getting added to my own total.

I just went back in this thread and and-1's 4, then 7, then 7 posters, refreshing after each spree, and my own total incremented by 4, then 7, then 7.


So, if your counter has stopped incrementing, it's probably because you're not being very generous with the 1's. ;)


EDIT: Yup, the and-1 backseatboss just gave me for this post did not increment my counter. But I'm willing to bet it did his.

Holy crap, you're right! Happened to me just now as well. This is very weird.

Wow, this is powerful information we have in our hands here....

I'm not sure I want the burden of this kind of responsibility...

Some clarification on this point:
SMTBSI wrote:Now, I'm not sure that the issue is phantom and-1's, or if it's that the notifications are getting delayed. I've noticed that I'll get in a conversation, get a couple responses and a couple and-1's, but get no notifications, and then when I log in the next day, the notifications are there. So it may just be that things are lagging so much for some reason that the incrementing seems to be doing weird things.

I no longer think that is actually happening - what appeared to me to be lag is probably actually just a consequence of the self-and-1 bug.

I think it's just something I perceived and misinterpreted based on my counter incrementing (due to me giving out and-1's), but receiving no notifications. Then, overnight, I get a couple actual and-1s, which don't increment my counter, but do cause notifications.

So, it appeared to be that the notifications were getting delayed, when that was not the case. So, there's likely no notification bug - just the self-and-1 bug.

So an example of this bug in action:

The poster BackseatBoss references above, Sippy, now has 4787 and-1's on 80 lifetime posts.


Update: Sippy is now up to 9140 and-1's. At this point, I actually hope he gets to keep them once the bug is fixed, because that is a lot of time he'll never get back otherwise.

And-1 attribution now appears to be fixed. When I rescind my and-1 from Hermes' post above, it subtracts one from his count, and does not change mine. When I and-1 him again, it adds one to his count, and does not change mine.

As of now, all of the ill-gotten and-1's of the last few days have not been rescinded/redistributed. For example, Sippy still has his 9700+.

Yep. Happening to me as well. Checked my setting and box unchecked so I shouldn't be getting them.

Not sure if this is anyone else's problem but I keep getting diverted to a "contest of champions" pop up on my iPhone 6. It has a picture of Cyclops on it. I am sick of it. I can't really use real GM anymore on it. And I use my iPhone on real GM preferably about 75-80% of the time over desk tops. Please help.

I'm having an issue on my Samsung S7 where I'm constantly getting virus warnings while browsing realgm with the chrome browser.

It says something like "your system is heavily damaged by (4) virus" and then shows you a page that looks like a Google page with instructions on removing the virus. Is this a known pop-up coming from realgm?

I'm in Canada btw.

Howard,

I think it's been an issue for a few months, but the RealGM app seems to be delisted on iTunes. I don't seem to be seeing anything in the app store. I have the apps downloaded on my phone and iPad, so it isn't an issue necessarily for me, however the app most likely hasn't been updated in a while.

Are you aware of this issue?

I feel like I have no chance to successfully find an avatar that meets the requirements. It's either to large (which is not the big issue) or off a site that's not allowed (which holds up most of my attempts). Literally all the time. Any tricks? Which sites are allowed? Thanks

Hi. I'm having trouble over the last few days with the "My Posts" function (the link in the drop-down menu under your username which shows the most recent threads you have posted in) and keep getting an error message saying "Sorry, search could not be performed. More information about this failure has been logged in the error log."
