What has happened?
Suddenly i'm missing a lot of sounds, after freesound has been down for a couple of hours. This is not good! I haven't saved the text and tags belonging to the sounds, anywhere else.
I guess the next question is, will anyone be able to recreate this?
Moderated or unmoderated sounds?
Sounds that has been approved, and has been downloaded by people.
I also miss the last sounds that were uploaded in July.
I am now missing 4 out of 5 of my approved sounds after the down time. The one sound that still seems to be there is actually the newest one uploaded. All the others say "failed".
This is not good at all!
I have found that sounds I uploaded in July and August this year now have a status of:
Processing state: Failed
If you click on the sound, you get messages:
Be advised, this file has not been processed yet.
Download unavailable, sound not yet processed or moderated
These are sounds that have already been approved and have been downloaded.
I guess this is basically the same problem that you guys are getting?
I see it too - a lot of my sounds are missing.
I have reported this to the technical team.
we're currently looking at the problem. We still don't know what exactly happened, but we have seen that around 5000 sounds have been suddenly labeled as if they failed processing. As a consequence, all these sounds have disappeared from the web interface, but they have not been lost. We still have all these sounds with all their descriptions and metadata, and once we manage to better understand what happened we will put them back online.
Thank you for your understanding!
Thank you very much for your answer frederick, and I can see that my sounds are back again. I got all nervous for a while there
Hello everyone again,
the issue with sounds being marked as "processing failed" is solved. You should see all your sounds back again!
However, if you notice about any missing sound or further problem which you think might be related don't hesitate to tell us.
Time for a beer guys!!!! Jippy...
