#2919 resolved; the fix is in

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.

Manual Correction

  1. Shutdown Flock
  2. Go into your profile folder
  3. Delete files: flock_fq_default_in.rdf and flock_fq_default_out.rdf
  4. 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.

  1. Yes, agreed. Now I can finaly upload all my Fx bookmarks included pr0n..:)

    – ØØ –

  2. 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,
