It's Been a Week. Is Feedburner Going to Fix its Problems?

Yesterday, we reported that Feedburner is not recording Bloglines subscribers. The funny thing is that this was acknowledged on December 6th. It's December 11th and there is absolutely no fix in sight.

As you can tell by the image on the right (which reflects an RSS feed of mine), subscriber counts have been down for a week. And for whatever reason, Google is not fixing the Bloglines issue.

Or maybe they tried. But at the same time, "when you fix a bug, you introduce a new one." Apparently, they're breaking other counts along the way. Today, I noticed that my other blog has a subscriber count of 0, which is completely different than yesterday's subscriber count (of more than 0, of course!)

(Or maybe they aren't, because my Bloglines number is still down on one RSS feed and I have a 0 subscriber count on another feed of mine.)

It seems that Google's Feedburner team needs to get its act together. But hey, that's just me -- and the percentage of people who have been affected for a week now.

Forum discussion continues at Google Groups.
