I can't be sure that 1 caused 2, but it certainly looks like it, in view of what Dean Jansen wrote on June 17, 2013 about a new data model that makes the new editor possible in the Amara: please address severe longstanding issues discussion, in spite of his previous affirmation on June 14 that "We are done with the data model and are basically ready to launch, but are waiting on a few partners to make the necessary confirmation tests and modifications to ensure a smooth transition".
A My subtitles are gone thread was started by Mami Kawade on the Amara help forum 5 hours ago, reporting about deleted last revisions in a TED team video. Since then, 5 other users have reported deletions, either of last revisions or of whole subtitles.
As Amara developers are responsible for these deletions, could they please immediately go and explain what happened and how they're fixing it in that My subtitles are gone thread? Or possibly, Dean Jansen, if the developers are too busy fixing that mess. But the developers would be better.
And then, make an announcement about the deletions on top of all Amara pages, linking to the My subtitles are gone thread on top of ALL Amara pages.
Also: if a maintenance is scheduled as this one purported to be, announce it in the Updates and News board of the help forum with an explanation of what it will involve, as Jules Rincón used to do and again, link to the announcement on top of all Amara pages.
In general: when Amara developers are cooking up new stuff, stop doing so behind Amara users' back, tell them in the help forum and involve them in the testing, please!
