News feed is not loading

Hi

The news feed is not loading for my Github account

is there any setting that I should change to get back the feed?

Kindly let me know.

Hey @karthikasasanka o/

There’s currently an internal-only tool which will clear a users’ activity feed. We typically suggest this if we see a feed kicking out a :unicorn: but it might be appropriate, here.

Before I take any action which might clear your feed history, can you please confirm this is still going on?

I have also checked to make sure, and you’re certainly following some folks and I’d expect there to be some activity.

So again, lmk if it’s still ongoing, and I can kick it in the pants for you.

Hey Kartheek,

Thanks for following up! I appreciate the :+1: and I’ve gone ahead and cleared your activity feed on the backend.

I would recommend logging in from an Incognito or Private Browsing window and perhaps test by following a very active repository, or contributor.

If you continue to have problems, I’d be curious to know if there is a specific repo or individual that you’re following where you’re not seeing updates.

I really hope this worked, though!! :crossed_fingers:

its working now

able to see feed

thank you

That’s wonderful! Thank you so much for following up @karthikasasanka

It’s unfortunately a rather destructive action, which will remove historic feed data. We are working internally on a broader fix as I’m positive you are not the only one that’s had this experience.

The solution is also not sustainable. For all impacted, we wouldn’t be able to manually go and take that action. From what I’ve seen, there is discussion around exposing that option (completely clear your activity feed) to users, but it hasn’t been decided yet.

If there is anything relevant that comes from that conversation, I’ll come back here to post.

Having the same issue here since a while now
How can i fix it ?
