As you may have noticed, I’ve not done much on this site. I am in the process of setting up another site and will be moving some, but not all, of this site’s content over to it. Check it out — http://jilbert.org — and let me know if there is an article from this site that you would like me to copy over to that one.
It has recently come to my attention that the items I have uploaded/clipped to Polyvore cannot be found. On the 18th of September I sent the following email to Polyvore —
Seems with your latest update, people are no longer able to find my items via search. I realize you were trying to lessen the “noise” for me, but I had assumed it was a “tweak” to the interface, not making my items impossible for others to find.
It used to be that a simple search for “comcast trees” or “comcast.net trees” would return any trees that I had uploaded via my comcast.net account and had tagged as “trees” … or … if I created a query along the lines of http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/search.things?displayurl=comcast.net&tag=trees trees would show up … not anymore (I have had more than one person tell me about this).
If I had unlimited storage in my comcast account, I wouldn’t worry about this problem, I’d just leave everything up on the server so folks could find them there. But this is a personal (ie, free) account and I must continually delete things in order to upload more.
I received a response back almost immediately that it would be looked into.
