Hmm. Okay so it seems like this is happening in waves, too. I've emailed Chris a few times offering to help, but I've not yet heard back from him. Every time I get my hopes up that the latest fix will solve it, it stops working. Seems to almost batch posts in the tune of 20 at a time, as the last few times I've refreshed it SEEMS like it's been 20 stories sitting there.

Feels just... wrong not to be totally up to date on my TA news 😭

Mine is not working again as of a few days ago, last article I got was the Snowball review. Haven't changed anything on my end at all, using Bazqux reader and Reeder.

Emailed the Bazqux dev again and here is what he replied with:

They now return stale feed for both my US and Germany servers (and here in Moscow from my home computer last post is from December 13).

I've mailed them two days ago but no reply yet.

I've tried to proxy their feed through feedburner.com but it returns stale feed too.
You could try to subscribe to their twitter https://twitter.com/toucharcade?excl...clude_retweets
but it will only present links and short text.
Any chance any of you TA folks would be able to look into this?

Thank you!

Same here for a few weeks now. Also, clicking on the feed icon on the homepage shows that the feed is empty.

Using inoReader on iOS and web.

Well, I'm on Feedly and use the Reeder app and my RSS has been working fine. I've forwarded this to our support person and hopefully he'll be able to look into the problems you guys are having. I'll let you know what happens!

The problem is none of us can duplicate this problem so it's incredibly difficult to fix.

My feed suddenly just updated with a bunch of articles, so hopefully it's fixed? I'll report back if it stops again!

Same thing. Haven't gotten any news from TouchArcade in a couple of weeks and then all of a sudden had a flood of them overnight. I use InoReader back from when I moved to it off Google Reader.

Not sure what's causing TA to lose RSS every now and then. Mostly I miss the "New this week" release posts
