This is taking too long. I have a pretty strong feeling there are more problems with this than has been said. I work in a tech industry and I can't help but feel that way. It just is not adding up to the explanations or the time it would take to fix the stated issues.
You're 100% correct. The site IS a mess, and this IS taking too long. Unfortunately we don't have any additional information for you other than what we have already shared.
The most recent update we have been given is the server that hosts our site was infected with a virus around the same time that the gallery issues we first reported started happening. Apparently this virus is a particularly nasty one, and is taking a long time to disinfect. I am not present as these repairs are being made, so I can't give you regular updates as to the progress of the fix. All I can do is reiterate that our tech support team is working on a solution, and continue to provide updates in this space as I receive them.
I understand your frustration, because I feel the same way. We all do. I don't blame you if you're starting to get annoyed. Frankly, I have been blown away by the patience and understanding our members have shown us thus far. But I understand that patience is starting to wear thin. I wish I had a better solution than the temporary free gallery folder, but as I previously mentioned I don't have the ability to extend subscriptions or otherwise access members' profiles for privacy and security reasons. So I'm left with very few options to appease our loyal and supportive members while this issue drags on. If anyone has any suggestions we would certainly love to hear them.
