In a comment dated July 12, 2013 on my blog, luciab pointed out to me that several URLs leading to subtitle pages in a work document we had used early in June for an activity with Amara within a cMOOC, weren't working anymore now. Here they are:
The pages they lead to all say "Sorry, the page you requested was not found."
Fortunately I had also indicated the URL for the video's main page - http://www.amara.org/en/videos/rVHqxPbw8m90/info/importare-un-file-opml-in-bloglines/ - in that document, so we were able to see that the subs were still there, but with different URLs now:
Otherwise, as I had added the video to the Captions Requested team, I might have thought some admin or owner had goofed with the new Delete Subtitle Language function (see here ).
It made me wonder if there might not be other cases of subtitles that had changed URLs. So I checked the subtitles submitted for deletion in the Removing subtitles or videos topic after Amara staff stopped deleting them at the end of February 2013 (i.e from p. 5 of that topic). All their URLs also lead to pages that say "Sorry, the page you requested was not found," giving the false impression that Amara Staff has started again fulfilling these deletion requests.
Not so: here too, the URLs for the subtitles have changed, but the subtitles are still there:
So, is this yet another aftershock of the June 29, 2013 upgrade? E.g. a
consequence of the reinsertion of subtitles that were initially deleted
by it (see My subtitles are gone)?
