Lemmy.ca currently shows 22 comments on this post, but its native instance, lemmy.ml, shows 35 comments.

It’s not (or not only) a matter of only older comments being present, or of comments being from different instances: for example, this comment from a lemmy.ml user doesn’t appear on lemmy.ca but this later comment from a different lemmy.ml user does.

Is this a known problem?

Good questions, to be sure. I presently don’t have any answers for why that would have occurred, but I definitely see that the federation around that post is totally inconsistent - the post on sopuli.xyz has even fewer comments than here: https://sopuli.xyz/post/18413

And now that I’ve had a look at lemmy bugs, I can see why it’s occurring: https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy/issues/1820

Fortunately it’s being worked on!

Man, I’m tired today. So that bug was closed and the timeline of that post you noticed was the same time frame.

I need to update our backend here, which I will do once I’m a little more awake, but I expect that very little regarding this issue should be noticed after lemmy.ml updated.

Have updated the backend to 0.13.1 now.

Great, thanks! I guess I will post again if I see still see it happening with future comments.

Thanks, appreciated. Updated the backend again today due to another federation issue that was just resolved (had to do with vote counts, so a little less major).
