Hey Folks,

For a long while now, one of our most-reported bugs has been the inability to delete certain (often old or dead) likes from your profile; after a long and grueling battle, this bug is finally fixed!

You should now be able to delete any given item from your likes; if you've experienced issues with this in the past, please give it another try, and let us know if there's any problems.

I have 5 (that I know of so far) that I still can't delete: http://www.stumbleupon.com/stumbler/g...

I think that's a separate bug - deletions via likes-by-interest pages or interests searches may take awhile to be reflected on those pages, as that data is cached separately.

Does that mean that if I keep clicking the X they'll disappear eventually? I tried deleting one after finding it via a search, and that didn't work either. How else are we to find the pages we want to delete?

and surely enough, you don't show up as a liker anymore:
http://www.stumbleupon.com/content/1m...

you may just want to remove the 'cant-delete' tag from those pages.

I have done that, and still find the pages when I search my likes. I'm assuming those will disappear as the cache for those pages changes.

But my reviews (which I had changed to a period) still appear as a review consisting of a period: http://www.stumbleupon.com/content/2N... and http://www.stumbleupon.com/content/1p...

Not only that, but when I tried to delete said period and clicked Save, I was congratulated for adding a comment:

deleting likes won't delete reviews, you'll still have to remove those separately.

ah yes and, searching for likes is yet another different situation - the search index is rebuilt every few days, so changes won't be immediately visible there.

and . . . um,. . . how do I delete the review if deleting it from the review box doesn't delete it?

ok, sounds like a separate bug wrt deleting comments - please open a new thread to track it, or bump an existing thread if there is one.
