Do you want to hear the good news first? Well, the site is back! 😀
Bad news? The whole gallery is gone.. Yeah, all pictures are lost/removed. Amanda-Bynes.net was deleted (I’m partially to blame for that myself), but the backup did not include the gallery, and unfortunately, I haven’t backed it up myself. 🙁
I am working on installing coppermine now so I can add the newest candids of Amanda. I figured I can add those new pictures for now, and we’ll take it from there. I love Amanda so much, and I do not want to give up on this site, but as you all I’ve been working on gallery updates (in addition to new pictures) since I took over the site in 2012. My question to you is are you all really interested in going through all these updates again? It’ll take me a long time to get all those 70,000+ pictures we once had back (and some of them I probably never will get back), but I’m more than happy to try to find/save as many of them as I can.
I work in the fitness industry, and we always say that slow progress is better than no progress, and I feel like that applies well to this site now as well. Haha! 😉
However, this whole process feels very repetitive, and I just want your input on it all. I have a feeling the wordpress comments here do not work as they should atm, so feel free to email me at youknowyouloveme[at]live.com with any advice/comments/suggestions!
I’m so sorry about the way I treated this site for the past year or so, but I want you to know I never wanted it to get deleted, ever. I’m torn regarding what to do. I spent all morning crying, because I’m so frustrated with myself at this point.
Let me know what you guys think is best. I’m hoping to be able to post these candids soon, I just need to fix the new gallery! 🙂
Amanda seems to be doing a lot better, and hopefully this will be her year! <3
