Default No point speculating

I recall the last time IB changed hosts it took many weeks of preparation and then some to bed down properly and that was without a bad server in the mix.

Personally i'll be ignoring them until we're told by someone who has some
factual information straight from the Admin on IB

Which says the recovery process is over

Otherwise your guessing whats alive / dead

I learned that Imagebam had a bad server. Data recovery is being attempted but no promises on how successful it will be.


Might be smart to simply wait awhile until everything settles

PS


From what i've been checking from avery small sample through March , April & May
there seems to be a cut off date

Full sized - 30.3.17 and before for 2017 - Alive

31.3.17 and up to and including 12.5.17 - dead

Post by deezer confirms similar 30.3.17 - 12.5.17 with example from MIR

I think all in all just the fact that Imagebam and Imgbox are not "closing their doors" is BIG and a real blessing, and we just need to be a little patient until they resolve their issues.

Hmmm, VEF perpetrated this Ibam/Ibox event as a test to see which members are loyal, true blue, and forum die-hards!

I'm aware that several of my former posts are not available from ImageBam currently.
I still hope they will be back soon once the server migration has been completed.
Please don't send reports (or PMs) of dead pics or requests for reuploads!

Just wondering, do we have some sort of press release saying they aren't actually shutting down? Was trying to upload some images today using their api....

Code:
(
    [rsp] => stdClass Object
        (
            [status] => fail
            [error_code] => 999
            [error_message] => service is shutting down - please backup your files
        )

)

If they were closing the same notice as before would be in place of the one below

The site appears to be down through the normal address (spoke too soon)

Reachable via proxy anonymouse but login doesnt work

database issues one would presume - looks to be widespread but intermittent

http://anonymouse.org/cgi-bin/anon-w....imagebam.com/

Just tested this 46 post - 6 alive using IHG

Manually they come and go - sometimes dead , other times alive
- pic descriptions are sometimes original other times numbers
- maybe a backup is in play who knows

Very unstable - patience & persistence are needed

Frustration via venting never achieved anything imho

Hi,

Server 101 is undergoing intensive data recovery efforts still, we do not expect all can be recovered, but we will restore what we can when we can, it is likely to still be 2-3 weeks, & that is only an estimation at this stage, not a firm timetable.

Best regards



At least now we have a time table to work to rather than being in the dark
