Far to busy making "improvements" that no one needs, asked for or wants to worry about trivial details like having a site that actually works.

It looks like a load issue - things are timing out.  Sometimes it works, often things dont.

So far
- the dashboard accepted/pending thing doesnt work
- the keyword suggestion doesnt work
- FTP doesnt work

...and from a buyers side:-

- search times out
- contributors galleries dont work

They've managed to break both buyer AND contributor stuff at the same time.

I guess their exponential expansion due to the "accept everything" policy is starting to catch up with their creaky infrastructure and coding.

I thought not so long ago they said they rebuilt their system to bring their infrastructure up to date?  :o. I know they spent vast sums on IT.......

One of their moves was to limit files pixel dimensions to 150M, although many other agencies keep it at 250m, because the files from the newer full frame cameras are larger than 150M by default, and then you don't have to downsize them. It is very frustrating to downsize each picture, just because they can't keep up with the standards for modern cameras and the storage space needed for that.

When you stop quality controlling submitted images and your goal is to be the "biggest" you end up with over a million images a week being added.
That's going to kill your infrastructure rapidly regardless of switching to AWS or other systems.

"MORE MORE MORE" is possibly good from a shareholder point of view but really bad from an IT management point of view!

Apparently theres been a Fire at one of their Data Centres......looks like their Disaster Recovery plan could do with a brush down.....a global leader should be able to cope better.

It also doesn't explain why it broke at the same time last Sunday.
And the one before that.

How much money should they now owe shareholders, clients and contributors for their day of negligence?
