Not sure if anyone else is noticing this but I am not longer getting notifications of new/updated questions on the front page of the site anymore. Other Stack Exchange sites that I have open in different tabs are still showing the X number of new posts notice in the tab and the page itself but I am not seeing this on Board Games. Now I am having to manually refresh the page to see if there are any new posts.

  • @Glorfindel Thanks for the response. Makes me wonder why it works for some Stack Exchange sites for me but not others. I just had to refresh to see recent changes and no indication of any changes beforehand

    I think I am also experiencing this. I don't think I have seen that notification banner recently.

  • @murgatroid99 Interesting, seems this isn't just a bug on my side and wonder what is different between us and Glorfindel

  • I’m voting to close this question because it's reporting a problem that can no longer be reproduced. Commented Aug 2, 2022 at 12:21
  • @doppelgreener Maybe you can no longer reproduce it but that doesn't mean it isn't happening to others still. This has not been solved for me and I don't see that as a reason to close the question.

It seems that this is a bug in SE code around ignored tags and has to do with the setting to hide them versus graying the question out. I was changed it from hiding (not sure how that got set that way as I had no ignored tags) to graying them out. After that change it started showing updates as expected.

This was found after I asked the question on Meta Stack Exchange and a helpful user was able to find the bug and explain it. More information can be found in the question and answer on Meta Stack Exchange
