I am trying to become a Fan of this campaign:

And clicking it in Chrome doesn't seem to work.

    Hi, thanks for contacting Obsidian Portal.

    I think this might have just taken a few minutes to take effect. I see you both on the fan page and I see it listed as a favorite on your profile page.

    If there's anything else we can do for you please let me know. Thanks for using Obsidian Portal!

    I ended up going directly into the campaign pages and doing the Fan thing
    there. The "Become a Fan" option that is offered when you find campaigns
    from the Systems link is the one that doesn't work.

    Clicking the "Become a Fan" button on someone's profile (specifically this one) in Chrome still does nothing.

    Seems to be that one still cannot "Become A Fan" of any campaign except by inside the campaign itself. Trying to do so from a profile or from the "Campaigns" page does not work still.

    Stupid question, but you are signed in when trying this? Works for me, so was just checking.

    Yes, I am signed in. And yes, stupid questions are often the most important to ask.

    Tried on both Firefox and Chrome and neither will let me "Become a Fan" by using a button outside of the campaign. Once I'm looking at the specific campaign pages the "Become a Fan" there works just fine. ...for me.

    I see the issue you are experiencing weasel0. As you said you can become a fan only on the Home page. All other avenues appear bugged. Thanks for discovering this bug weasel. I'll take it to support.

    @KillerVP Where were you able to become a fan of the campaign other then the home page of the campaign?

    Nope, sorry for the late response, but definitely a new bug.

    I see this as assigned and was wondering about any further update as it isn't yet functioning.

    Seems this is mostly working but not reliably. Also, COTM still doesn't say April.

    I would like to add that removing a favorite seems cumbersome at 5 clicks and a confirmation if you know where you need to find it.

    Might I suggest folding the "unFan a page" function into the same button Clicked to "Become a Fan" was with a confirmation?

    Being able to Fan a page from someone's profile works now, but you still can't unFan a campaign the same way.
