Delicious and Reddit... my first checking stops
Are you on Delicious? Or did you use to be on Del.i.cio.us? (note the periods...)
Have you not checked in there for a few months? You are in for a bad surprise.
Anyone who did not get emails from them and did not migrate their bookmarks have zero bookmarks to migrate. There is no place to get them, they erased them.
But you can put all of them back one by one in a different way there.
I registered again using my old info. and found out about this yesterday.
Which again goes towards my own advice backup, backup, backup. Luckily, I have been using Firefox to save my bookmarks for awhile, so I didn't lose everything.
I made a web page on the Betsyanne website using a Delicious widget. I will need to redo that page too.
I like to pretend I know what is going on with the websites I use, but I sure got blindsided here. Of course, then I had to go on the 'net to find other people who lost everything there. It was kind of fun in a bad way to read these. Some people actually thought they saved their bookmarks but didn't. And some were super-users who lost thousands of their bookmarks. So I guess it could have been worse.
Next up: Reddit - and going to all the other bookmarking or social networking sites I can think of to check my account. I went there today to check that one out. I had a whole bunch of subscriptions on the site that I didn't remember signing up for. But the site looks pretty much the same, and my name and password worked. ::whew!::
Just a heads up.
