    Here we go again ...

    Nine out of 10 pics not displaying. So actually, that takes care of the UNABLE TO POST issue  (yes, that one's back as well), because if what you post won't show, there's no need to post it in the first place, right?

    But please God let them succeed in completing that poll they put up last week, that's the main thing, don't you agree? I don't mind chat not working, or images not displaying, or any of the other stuff that's been broken for months. Who needs it? And it's only been just over half a year that all that stuff's been fucked, so let's not get impatient.

    But I MUST find out how many of us are doms, and how many switch - otherwise, what's the point of having a blog?

    My entire archive is wiped. Even a purely text post is blank. No images, just text. Gone. I don't want to have to rewrite it.

    I see giant holes like this in other people's archives where presumably the content lost never got recovered. If that happens I'm probably gonna check out and go back to ghosting for porn again.

    Oh yeah. I just remembered Russia was going to wage a huge ransomware attack over the July 4th weekend. I hope their hosting service didn't get caught up in that.

    Well if Russia - or whoever - has the intelligence to paralyze hundreds of companies worldwide, they wouldn't be stupid enough to bother with this site whose management, it appears, can't even afford a few tech people worth a salary. I'm sure BDSMLR aren't caught up in a ransom attack from abroad but in a web of incompetence woven exclusively by themselves.

    Oh - and my archive's currently more or less empty as well.

    Thanks for reporting it.  I have huge gaps of missing pictures as well.  I guess we'll just have to monitor the situation.  There were no communications on the regular bdsmr.com site concerning issues/outages.

    Its the same for me, nothing showing at all except for the advertising. Thought it something to do with my Desktop computer, tried all sorts of stuff until I saw all your post. Hope its able to be sorted soon.....

    Oh, you folks are all exaggerating. I see plenty of pictures.

    Pretty much all of the ads are full of visible pictures.

    So there's that.

    My subs and I are also experiencing this technical difficulty

    I'm not idiot enough to think Russian hackers attacked BDSMlr directly.

    I'm also not idiot enough to not realize they have to use some major web hosting platform for their servers, and that platform would also be host to a myriad of other far more crucial web services. The hackers were targeting the web hosting services, not individual websites; that's where the real ransom money is.

    I'm also not idiot enough to believe correlation is causation. I was mainly just throwing out the possibility that the problem may not even be within their control.

    Most systemic website crashes have more to do with the hosting service than the webmasters themselves. Look at the chaos that ensues when some part of AWS goes down every few days and suddenly half the world can't play Fortnite for a few hours.

    My queue is back now but images still dont load. I started backing up every post I make on a hard drive ever since the Tumblr ban but it's been especially helpful here.

    Also check out newtumbl as a backup plan at least

    The Russian conspiracy theory can't account for the fact that the problem bdsmlr has with CDN servers well predates the alleged 4-July date for the alleged attack.  Unless the conspiracy theory can be expanded to include time travel.  But that would require science, and Republicans don't believe in science.  :P

    So picture that have shown in the past are not now. Most pics show a broken page.

    No pictures showing, even photos posted yesterday that I could see yesterday, not even able to see my own photos posted months ago.

    Presumably, as the older image servers got full, new ones have come online.  For example, on older blog entries, the images are on "cdn05", "cdn08", etc.

    The current image server is called "cdn012".  cdn012 is the one that's, presently, experiencing trouble.

    This would mean that anything uploaded recently (including icons) show up as missing.
    It also means that nothing can be uploaded, since it would, otherwise, go onto cdn012.

    Yeah old images are ok but new ones on cdn012 are all blank.  Frustrating, but they came back before and this is not our first rodeo... so I guess we get upset for a while then they fix it in a month or two...

    This is really disappointing, even heartbreaking.  I thought we had a new porn home.  This place was awesome, people were digging my posts, I was making new friends, even came close to having a new boyfriend too!  Now it's all turned to shit.  Whatever they did when they started, GO BACK TO DOING THAT.  It was WORKING, guys!  I'll even accept more ads if I can get my bdsmlr back again!!

    This is hilarious. I discovered this site barely a week ago and cannot describe how excited I was. Spent much of the last couple days trying to figure out what I had messed up that 90% of stuff stopped displaying.

    Of course the site stops working days after I find it. Isn't that just the way?

    Instead of making unlikely theories, read the relevant part of the error message:

    <Message>The bucket cdn012.bdsmlr.com is temporarily unavailable:
    excessive READ/GET API calls</Message>

    The most likely thing that could have happened is that some kind of quota of requests (READ/GET) for resources (images) to the CDN (Content Delivery Network) has been exceeded.

    If I have to make an educated guess as to why the problem has yet to be solved, it is because of a lack of time and/or money.

    It'd sure help their bandwidth if they'd make thumbnails of the images for use on the archive/s, instead of displaying the full images sized down by one's browser.

    ---

    If it makes y'all feel any better, the other two similar sites, also, have problems.

    newTumbl doesn't have a functioning search engine, doesn't answer tickets, and their chat rooms constantly fail and need reset.

    blogr.xxx has the same stuck e-mail problem that bdsmlr had, so no new person can complete their signup.

    Same proble here. I've already lost most of my blog like 2 years ago where there was a problem with failed server (I was said it would be fixed but it wasn't, at least not for me). Now, most of my blog is empty :( 

    I don't want to be ungrateful to BDSMLR staff, but I've put so much work into my blog and I feel like it no longer makes any sense on this unreliable service.

    Pictures are back! At least for me.
    And about the competing sites, thank you to Nubutnotnu . I am using newTumbl, but what are unintentional problems at bdsmlr seem to be intentional design flaws at newTumbl. At the current state that site is not an alternative, neither by technology nor by content.
