It seems that there have been no new updates regarding Pre-Pubs sent via Feedburner since 25 July (http://feeds2.feedburner.com/LogosPrepubs).  Does anyone know if there is a problem with it, or whether Logos has stopped using it in this way?  

They still seem to be using Feedburner for Community Pricing updates (http://feeds2.feedburner.com/LogosCommunityPricing).

Thanks.

It could be that Logos changed their settings from specifying a regularly scheduled time to specifying an exact time that posts are supposed to go up...

Thanks, Tom.  I'm not quite sure I understand this.  I used to get email updates, but I no longer do.  Has anyone else any ideas?

Sometimes removing and reinstalling a feed helps. 

Email might be old hat, but it still works most of the time.

I just stuck the pre-pub link into Feedly. It showed a whopping 18 subscribers. Maybe that's why it's not being updated.

Thanks, mab.  I wasn't aware we could do that.

It would be reasonable not to update it for just 18 subscribers, but it would be even better if these 18 were informed.  I've been using it as my source for dates of when pre-pub titles go on sale for the tracking spreadsheet (http://community.logos.com/forums/t/51506.aspx).  With such an array of emails to opt into, I'm no longer sure which ones I want.  I already feel fairly swamped by Logos emails, and when I originally posted this above, I checked my signups and it didn't even show me as signed up for the pre-pub email.  I checked the box, but have had nothing since.

In the absence of any word from Logos, I guess I just forget about it and stop updating the spreadsheet...

Thanks for your patience, we have resolved all the issues with the feeds and Feedburner and they should be updating normally now.

Thanks, Aaron.  It does appear to be fixed, as you say.  It would have been good to hear a couple of months earlier though that Logos were working on it at least.  I had assumed that Feedburner had been left to die, as suggested above.  It's a bit late to resurrect the tracking spreadsheet (http://community.logos.com/forums/t/51506.aspx).  It's simply too out of date now, and would take too long to update it with the data that's now available.  I don't suppose Logos would be willing to produce something automatically for us, would they?  This would be far better, shouldn't be too much work, and could update itself automatically as the data changes.

Please let us know if there are any such plans afoot (or even possibly afoot).
