Shared List not accepting - name conflict?

quasistoic says:

I had a list with a particular name - let's call it "list5". A friend of mine then sent me a list which also happened to be named "list5". Now I can't get it to accept - or even if it is, it always shows up as new on my overview and settings>list pages.

Can you try logging out and then logging back in again?

Is the list still unaccepted?

There should be no problems with naming conflicts -- we allow sharing of lists with the same name.

No matter how many times I log out and back in, the list is still unaccepted. In fact, nowadays my "overview" page is telling me I have two unaccepted lists (while the Settings>Tasks page only shows the one) and 12 new shared tasks (there's only one in my inbox and 3 total in the duplicated list).

I'd be happy to allow access to my account for diagnostic purposes.

Can you email us at [old address removed] with the name of the list, and also the username of your friend? We'll see if we can figure out what's going on.
