Just posting this for those who may have missed it earlier.

We have tried to bring missing comments back, but the script to do this without replacing any new comments/creating duplicates or slowing the site down is seemingly impossible as we have over 400,000 pics in the system.

We have a workaround. If you see a photo that has comments missing click the Report Missing Comments link next to your photograph's edit link (right of the title when you open your photo). We will then run an import on the photo and they will return. Sorry for any inconvenience.

EDIT Just to clarify - any pics with missing comments will currently have no comments at all. There should be no pics on the site with some of the comments missing. (It's all or nothing)

Not sure how many comments were left on some of the photographs, so have just done the ones completely missing.

I just clicked the button you mentioned on one of my shots. I'll have to see if any other comments are missing. Impressive job on the site so far. I know what this takes.....

right that's that done and out of the way now - had to go through all 36 pages of my portfolio but appeared to be only newer photographs in the first 10 -15 pages

thanks for sorting out the comments problem =)

It was only one short period of time that was lost in the V3-V4 transfer, but as everyone who has reported missing comments will know they come back once reported. Smile

this has been enjoyable for me too because it got me round to looking through my whole portfolio again after a long time and remembering older image uploads i havn't seen for ages.
