Dissapearing Followers

Recommended Posts

Yesterday I set up about 40 member accounts to follow a couple of important files.  About 30 minutes later I noticed that there were only 12 followers on one of the files. Swearing I had signed up more than 40 members to follow I was thinking I had messed up something. 

So today I went back in and set up the 28 members who somehow had slipped off the follow list.  I took a screen shot just to make sure I was not imagining things.

Well,  I just logged in and found that there are only 13 followers now.

What the heck is going on?  Anyone have an explanation for this?  I think I am going out of my mind.  One question that comes to mind is this.  If I sign up someone to follow and sign them up for version updates, does the system take them off the Follow list?  Or,,,,  If I hide the forum or if I uncheck the privileges for member to view the forum and then unhide or recheck the permissions to see the forum would that make followers disappear?

I ask this because it is getting real difficult to keep going down the list of 40 pilots and re-signing them up for each of hte 5 files they need to be aware of when they are updated...

Thanks for any advice.

People can unfollow.

it is unlikely that 28 people who have not logged in once since last years event suddenly all logged in within a couple of hours and unfollowed something that they did not know they were following.  I am setting this up for a beg balloon even starting on the 28th.  I will check and see if I can find that setting you have mentioned, thank you.

why not try actually logging in as them

I do not know their passwords. 

Currently the even has not released the official pilot maps and targets for the event.  I am getting all the files set up and ready for the event.  When I get the official files I want to be able to load them and let the follow feature notify the pilots that the files are ready for download.  In between time I am not telling anyone that the files are in the forum.  If they log in they will see them and they are marked as (unofficial).  But I may not get the official files till the last moment and I have no idea how many changes I may have to make to last years files.  So I am trying to have everything else I can do in advance done.

Having those whom I set up to follow suddenly become un-followed defeats my attempts to get ahead of the rush.

Thank you all!

I am so sorry,  I thought it was from the time I set them up to follow. 


You are completely correct!  I am sure that is it.  I will turn that off.

Thank you.  I was not thinking of it that way.
