It is going on for six months since this site crashed and whilst minimal functionality has been restored since, it is just that, minimal.
One of the reasons I used this site was the ability to set up a random "queue" of posts and select who I saw on the dashboard as well as various other functions which suited my inability to be here that much. Almost all those functions have been gone since February and there is no sign of them returning. From what I have seen the problems just keep coming which is in stark contrast to communications which are a joke.
I decided after much thought to rescue what I could from here and set up on newTumbl instead of abandoning posting altogether.
As a site there are a few things that I would like to see on newTumbl, such as the ability to bulk post to queue, but that aside, the site works perfectly well and has almost none of the frustrations I have encountered here. I see lots of familiar posters there now so it seems people are voting with their feet and leaving BDSMLR. I don't blame them.
As to the "well it's free" argument, other sites are free but don't crash on a regular basis and have respect for the people who provide the content for the site, unlike here. What is the point of a free site that does not work? It's like getting free groceries you cannot use.
My posts have numbered well over 30,000 of which almost 50% have been lost, my followers number 16,400 + and it is for them alone I am posting on newTumbl, why should they miss out because this site is so appalling.
As soon as the salvage operation is finished I shall be gone permanently. I have no wish to be associated with the morons running this site. The frontpage/dashboard has not been fixed since the Feb. 2nd announcement, the promised blog has never materialised and the github page has not been updated since 5th May.
They are oblivious to anything posted here and the only one who seems to defend the current site operators is Jennie on an occasional basis. She may mean well but it does not solve a thing.
If others are happy to go down with the sinking ship, fine that is their choice but there are plenty of life rafts and the best one I have found is newTumbl so far.
I wish everyone well but if you are waiting for the site to be fixed, please don't hold your breath.
