Make sure uploaded papers don't disappear
I notice that previous feedback refers to the falling number of newspapers available during the WWI period. I have had a similar problem today, in that one previously accessed newspaper (London Daily News, 22.08.1891) appears to have completely vanished from your site. I accessed it on the 24th February this year, but because the quality of the downloaded PDF was not great (another minor gripe), I wanted to check the original, to no avail.
Can you clarify whether or not vanishing newspapers are a common problem? Is it just your database being temperamental, or are certain uploads only temporary? Thanks in advance for your help.
We are now working on a process to add back in the newspapers we had to remove temporarily for copyright reasons – expect some good news soon!
Last week, the home page showed 262 titles available - I now see there are only 259 - that is not 'progress', but exceedingly frustrating. I see little point renewing the subscription when the patchy coverage of the archive is actually diminishing.
