I just screencapped my favorites page; works about the same, really.
At this point it might be wise to bookmark or save the link of your favorite creators, that way if the search becomes broken you can still access the creator's page, and you don't have to worry about your favorites being deleted.
all my favorites are gone, this is the like 9th time this has happened and every other time they magically came back….
but this time i didn't realize they were nuked, went to a userpage, favorited it, now my favorites list has one entry on it. I worry this means they won't all magically come back like before.
any one know? when favorites vanish randomly like this do once or twice a week, does adding a new one prevent them from magically returning?
Every time my favorites went away in the past I tried and failed adding new favorites, and when they finally came back I got duplicates from those attempts.
This time the new favorites immediately got added so it seems like the old ones are gone forever.
Could we please refactor how the favorites work so people can back them up and import them at any time? Clearly saving things in an accountless, cookie based manner is not working out reliably.
