Activity Feed not showing names

+10 votes

I've noticed that when a profile is updated that is not fully "open" privacy, it is now blanking out that name on my Family Activity Feed and it's a bit annoying. If that's the way it has to be, then I'm OK with it, but it seems like this was working fine recently, and now I'm having a harder time backtracking to a profile I was working on than before as it only gives me cryptic messages like:

15:31: You added You as manager for profile of .


15:36: You added Notables Project WikiTree as manager for profile of .

It does seem to be fairly consistent in that the issues are with privacy changes and not so much with edits. Perhaps that's the pattern?

Anyway, I figured I'd throw this out and see if anyone else has noticed this, and find out if it is something that can be adjusted. Thanks.

Has been this way for a couple days, at least, and have not seen any explanation.. I've only adopted one profile, since this change, but made sure to add a link to it on my Home Page scratch pad, so I can find it again, to work on it.
Thanks for reporting this, Scott. It has now been fixed.

Scott, others of us have seen the same thing, and have reported it here.  But I haven't seen a response from Chris or anyone about what the status is.

I haven't seen a response either.  I didn't realize I used my contribution list so much .
Glad this has been reported.  I just noticed it myself.

This still appears to be a problem, so I'm answering it here to bring it back to the top of the list. Similar errors are showing up in the Ranger's referral feed.

Just noticed that the problem has been acknowledged in another G2G thread, and a fix is coming :)  Sooo glad this was not an intended change/improvement, that we would have to adapt to and work around.
