Missing Image Covers Fixed

22 Feb

We have just resolved an issue which caused some intermittent issues with missing image covers.

Turns out one of our image servers was out of sync with its peers causing the random disappearance of some image covers. Usually these early hardware symptoms are caught by our self-monitoring system but this particular server was mistakenly left off our monitoring list.

Problem solved and everything should return to normal within the hour.

    There must be a number of servers responsible for image covers alone…

    I’ve been getting the odd problem when uploading a doc. It sometimes uploads the whole thing in italics. Has anyone else had this problem?

      No, but I have been getting the problem where some of my words are bunched. Usually that happens when there’s an italicized word before it. I wonder if they are related problems?

    There are still quite a few covers out there that aren’t showing up on category pages. They show up if you access the story, but are either a blue “no” sign or the default silhouette on the category page. Some of the silhouettes indicate no profile picture, but on others, neither the cover nor the profile picture show up. As this roughly a half day since the “fix”, shouldn’t it have propogated out to all the categories by now?

      I’ve noticed the same, on stories that I know to have an image cover. Maybe it needs some more addressing?

    Now all my covers are missing instead of just two – not sure about the “fix.”

    I just want to comment on Anime section. I access some of them on my mobile phone. Like Kyo Kara Maoh, Junjo Romantica, Negima! Magister Negi Magi. I try to select English language, most favourite, the character, rating, etc. But the sorting does not work. Could you fix it? It will be great. Thx ya for reading this. 😀

    Not sure where to post this. I post the link for each of my stories on my facebook page and the last few weeks I’ve had problems getting the cover image to appear next to my story. Now they don’t appear at all. What happened? Also, on my earily posts, I have both the cover image and the summary. Now I’m not getting any image and instead of the summary, it’s the first few lines of the story or authors note instead. I prefered the summary.

    I am not sure if this is completely fixed because today there were some images missing.
