An Almighty Bloglines Server Stuff Up

bloglinesAm feeling like seriously eating my words about centralised RSS aggregation systems as Bloglines has just decided not to accept feeds from any site hosted on my servers… seriously, doesn’t matter whether you’re on WPMU or WP or the URL… it just isn’t updating anything at all!!!

Have no idea why either, no updates or upgrades have been made at my end whatsoever… it’s like being IP banned or something, very very odd :( Have pinged them with some very concerned support requests but it says they will take up to two days to get to them… so am hoping that someone out there – who isn’t reading this by bloglines – might be able to hurry stuff up, get things going… we’re talking of tens of thousands of blogs across all the sites and it needs fixing now!

Update: Sigh, the tech team thought bloglines was some sort of spambot and blocked it… all back to normal now… v impressed at the response time from Bloglines though, a comment by a Bloglines engineer within 3 hours of this post – I’m back in love again :)

  1. Hello,

    I am an Engineer for Bloglines, and am looking at why your feed is not updating.

    It looks like you, or your host, is blocking traffic from the Bloglines Crawlers. We are trying to fetch your site still, but we are recieving timeouts every time we attempt to fetch it. When i fetch it from a different IP, everything seems to work great.

    Can you check and make sure you or your service provider is not blocking or

    If you need any more help, feel free to contact me via email.

    Thanks for the quick response! Hopefully things should be unblocked (if that is teh problem) in the next 30 mins.

    Cheers, James
