Greenlight queue bug - invisible games
I'm experiencing it for like last two weeks since I started to vote for everything that gets into my queues.

Here's it: (no any genre filters on)

It shows 1-1 entries of 3 in total. No matter how many games are in the queue (when bugged for me categories contain those invisible games), should it be 2, 7, or 12 - no difference. It always shows me from (1) to (total-2) of (total). At first there was only 1 game "missing", now it's 2.

Doing some "research" on this I found out that one of invisible games contains "shooter" genre and another one contains "simulation" genre.
Doing like this:
Makes it look like this: (Action is ticked just to show the game Bloody Streets since it's the only game in GL not voted my me atm, because the queue is completely empty if I filter only by category that contains no visible games)

I don't know if any games on GL can be region-restricted, so they never show up but take up "slots" for queue. Or maybe it's just a glitch that occurred while voting on some of the games so they are not voted yes/no and generated with the queue, but for some reason are hidden in the queue.

Anyone else experiencing something similar?

P.S. I'm not exactly sure where to post this, but I hope to gather some feedback from users and that someone from staff sees it. I've looked through last few pages of discussion and found nothing similar.

This bug still annoys me, and I also fear it may expand ultimately leaving me no slots for queue at all

Is there any specific store/community/greenlight bugtracker where I can post it? Or maybe I should write a support ticket?
Can someone from staff please suggest me something I can do about it?

I get this too. I think it causes issues sometimes when I hit "View Next Item" (or whatever the button is called) I'll sometimes get bumped back to the main greenlight theory is that it tries to select one of these "phantom" games that I can't actually view, either way, I'm up to 3 phantom games now

Maybe they're just submissions that haven't been made public yet.

I've made a ticket a few weeks ago with a reference to this topic. The reply was that they've addressed this issue to "corresponding team". Nothig more so far.

I've got already 3 invisible games by the way. Wonder what happens if they expand to... 12?

We've updated the search index. Let me know if there's still an issue.

It now appears to be fixed, thanks TomB!

Well, it's okay now. Hope this problem won't wake up again. Thanks for fix!

all the same again :/

seems like some individual games are the cause of broken index for some reason or I don't know and I've no idea how to find exact game that is the cause (but I guess it's not related to voting, at least directly, I've encountered invisibility expansions always after a certain period of greenlight-inactivity for some ~2 weeks or more)

We're rebuilding the search index now.
