Lloyd‘s posted a solution to the disappearing favorites bug I reported on last week. Apparently it was a change on del.icio.us’s end that caused the problem.
Notes from Lloyd:
There are no negative effects to your favorites on del.icio.us. Unfortunately, the nature of this del.icio.us service bug, requires your manual correction.
- Shutdown Flock
- Go into your profile folder
- Delete files:
- Restart Flock
In other news, del.icio.us has finally added privacy to favorites! I know Joshua has his reservations about this feature and that it threatens the sharing focus of the community, but I actually would be willing to wager that more people are going start sharing now that they at least have the option to keep certain things private.

I think it’s a great idea to leave an option to private favorites, incorrectly categorized as “anti-social”. There are instances where you want that web site to be private. Having public and private favorites enriches the software.
In my opinion, del.cio.us made a great decision, and in the process, made Flock a better blogging browser.
I’m a happy user now,
