This may be related to some other recent questions and comments
its been a month since the unfortunate major technical glitch/ server crash. I believe Search has been rebuilt and is ‘reindexing’(?)
I’m still missing many gif sets I uploaded over the past 13 months. They are just not there anymore.
Will these return?
Also some favorite gifs and gif sets uploaded by me and others show as ‘there’ when searched-but the images don’t load. It’s the ‘blank post with broken windows where the gifs should be’ kind of thing.
Will these images load in the future?
Finally, and perhaps least important- sometimes an older gif or gif set (uploaded by me or anyone) simply won’t reblog. It’s frozen. You may view it, but that’s all. I say this is a lesser concern because-as a last resort- it could potentially be reuploaded by someone because the images are there and accessible.
Will these eventually ‘unfreeze’?
My main concern is about the completely missing gifs and sets, secondarily about the sets where images currently don’t load.
When I came here from tumblr, I put a Lot of time and effort in to manually uploading gifs and sets, so we could all enjoy and share the content. I’d hate to think some- perhaps many- of those uploads are now lost/unrecoverable. I don’t have the time now to do that work over again.
i appreciate any/info updates. A month after the crash, I’m becoming concerned. For me, reliable Search and Archives (for all blogs/all content) are key to being able to do the blog I want to do here.
thanks in advance
