I was surprised to see a message, posted as an image, on twitter from the "new BDSMLR team" asking for ways to communicate with users. Naturally, since then they have not communicated. The thrust of what they had to say was they wished to communicate but wanted input as to the best way to do that. It also spoke of "engineering problems" and a DNS failure that prevented them starting a blog on their own site!!
Once again it was a communication that communicated nothing of use and did not address the issues that have been ongoing for months. It certainly did not explain what the actual problem was or a time line to fix it. So meet the "new team" same as the "old team"
Advertising has reduced dramatically over the last two weeks, I see one advert on the dashboard for oxy-shop.com and nothing else, either on the front page or my blog. The only other advert is when you log on or refresh the homepage/dashboard when a popup ad tries to load but usually fails. I was told some time ago that the advertisers have there own servers, this was the previous time the site crashed and all that could be seen were adverts. If that was true, advertisers are retreating from the site now. I predicted as much some while ago and if that is happening one day, we will find that the site is gone for good.
Most of us who post regularly and have done for a few years will lose all we posted. Already most of what is lost, and it is considerable, is gone for good. I know of no way to retrieve my content, nor do I think I could be bothered to start all over again.
I shall keep posting what is in my queue, that runs into thousands, until the inevitable happens and the site is gone.
