I had a bunch of cool Halloween blinkies up this morning. When I left to go pay a bill they were still there but when I got back they were gone and they were replaced with blinkies that I made 2 years ago and havent used since then. What the heck happened?

Mine are all missing too. Along with alot of the book images on my shelf. I don't know what's going on.

I sent feedback in hopefully they'll let me know something. I was afraid they might have been removed by R&R but if thats so then yours would be gone and how would they have added the ones I hadnt used in so long.

MiMi  I see yours.  Mine didn't go away either.  My avatar disappeared, and I put one up again.  A book en route to me had a cover image and now it doesn't.

I think server weirdness must be going on.  We were mentioned at yahoo, did you see it, and we had like 3500+ ppl on the site right before my avatar disappeared.  Still over 2500 now.  Maybe all that traffic strained the servers???  If so, R&R'll be fixing it.   Dunno if the avatars will come back though.

I was on this afternoon, and when I was on all of a sudden the book postings started going wild. Then all of a sudden the pictures disappeared. Hope they haven't gotten any kind of virus on their system and they will let us know when everything is back up and running. Keri

Read the post in the other forum (linked above).

There was mention of PBS on Yahoo's homepage which caused a gazillion more hits on the site than usual.  Lots of new members and it overwhelmed the servers.  They had to turn some stuff off like book cover images and some people lost blinkines and avatars.  You'll just have to upload them again.

I stole them all! I'm holding them for ransom. I haven't decided what I want in exchange to return your blinkies to you safe and sound.

Stay tuned . . .
