HEY, You Said The Galleries Would Be Back On March 15! What Gives?!

So I’ve been sitting here for about 15 minutes, staring at this blank page trying to figure out what to tell you guys. I don’t like lying, and I don’t like spewing bullshit around trying to make things sound better – so rather than throwing out a bunch of dumb excuses and gifs to try and distract you from the “WHY” you clicked on this in the first place, I’m just going to give you the facts straight.

Where are the galleries we said would return on the 15th? Well, they’re not here. Obviously. They’re coming, but when everything migrated over from our previous system to the new one it wasn’t exactly a seamless transition; more like running the 100 meter dash and realizing in the last 10 meters of the track that you don’t have shoes on and someone sprinkled Lego bricks everywhere. Ideally we’re hoping that they’ll be back by the end of the month, or April 1st at the latest.

You’ve probably noticed that we’re also missing view counters and comments, which bums me out because I really do enjoy conversing with you guys in the comments every now and then. That being said, those will hopefully be back within the next two weeks as well.

“But Rebecca,” you say completely justified because at this point it’s been two months without galleries and you’re running out of patience. “You said that LAST time. How do we know it’s ACTUALLY going to be the end of the month and not fall 2020?”

Real talk: you don’t. We don’t either, honestly. We sort of know and we hope and we try, but we don’t know 100% — and I know you guys are disappointed and frustrated. We are too. It’s not like we wake up in the morning and twiddle our villain mustaches like “Oh ho ho HO, ‘tis March 16th and THERE ARE NO GALLERIES TO BE SEEN! Ha ha fuck you ALL!”

(Yeah I know I said no gifs – but I think there’s enough truth bombs up there that I’m allowed just one.)

Now that we’re all mostly on the same page, I want to say sorry.

I am sorry that we haven’t stuck to the March 15th deadline, and I am sorry that we’re missing comments and view counters. And thank you to everyone out there who’s sticking with us through this technological rough patch – we really do value you guys. I swear. We’re doing our best to clean everything up right now (as well as trying to add an upvote/downvote functionality), and hopefully by April 1st everything will be back to normal.

Since comments are obviously still missing, if anyone wants to reach out and say something feel free to email me at becca.martie92@gmail.com; I’ll do my best to respond to everybody.

Thanks guys.
