The lights are on
Please bear with us as we have launched in beta so you may notice a bug or two. The best thing you can do is let us know right here in the Site Feedback Forum. Have a question or comment regarding the new site? This is your place.
I recently wrote a new blog and a few reviews but my new blog, and Deus Ex HR Review are not showing.
I tried doing the blog again but it says that I have a blog of the same name.
As for the Review I can edit it, but it won't show up anywhere other than the edit button.
I've had the same problem. Weird.
I'm also having the same problem. I've tried posting my new blog five times, and it never shows up. I'm worried that five similarly named blogs will suddenly show up.
Have you tried through the Advanced Editor? That's what I use.

I have tried using the Advanced Editor once. And while it did technically publish, it still doesn't show in my blog feed or in the user blogs. I'm not sure what to do.
I would recommend you just provide a link to them on your page then. That's what I had to do with my reviews when I first started. Hopefully IT will iron this out soon.
I posted a blog about PS4 first weekend impressions and it was there in the user blogs feed. I came back and saw it in the listing with ~100 views. When I came back later today it is now gone. I don't see it anywhere?
I also posted a blog today, and it might not even be completely terrible, but it didn't show up in my feed. So I figured, "well that's weird and stupid. Where's my blog and so forth?" So I tried resubmitting it, but did it more quickly, so it wasn't going to look as cool, but GameInformer said I can't have two identical blogs, but they aren't identical since the second one was clearly lazier looking.
I'm a little slighted by this because I put considerable time into coming up with seemingly witty comments to put under the pictures I stole from Google.
Where is my blog?
By the way, everyone with "solutions" above--your solutions do not fix the problem that the blogs are not showing up in our feeds. "Workarounds" are not the same as "fixes" as some of us are too lazy for them.
Has anyone tryied emailing the GIO help desk or staff about this? And if so, have you gotten any response? I tried emailing the help desk twice. The ONLY response I ever received was an automated email message saying that they would respond within 24-48 hours. So, it appears that my efforts to raise the issue have been ignored. Is it safe to say that GIO has no plans of fixing this? And if so, then why are we paying for a subcription to Game Informer?
Admittedly, I hadn't notified GI until I read your post. I sent an email to them just now. Maybe if several people were to send an email, we can raise the issue and get it resolved as soon as possible. I'm very frustrated that I can't post any of my blogs.
Yes, I've got that problem with my reviews as well. I will write them tomorrow too.
I rewrote my PS4 first impressions blog and it did the same thing! It shows up under user blogs for a couple hours and it is now gone again. It is not listed on my personal blog page either.
I'm having all kinds of problems blogging on the site lately. Namely, I put the post together, hit publish, it takes me back to my blog page only no new blog. It never appears. I've tried using the advanced editor and the regular one to no avail. Appears to happen randomly, but I've tried twice under two different headlines to post my latest blog and neither has appeared. Extremely frustrating.
Aaagh it has happened again!
A response from an admin of the site would be nice :(
