Gray Question Marks in Projects

Hey folks -

We have become aware that a number of projects that were edited since the morning of 4/8/2021 may have been afflicted with an issue that caused some of the costumes or backgrounds to appear as “gray question marks”.

We believe we have fixed the issue so that projects can now be edited without turning costumes or backgrounds into question marks. However, if you do have projects that were affected, we recommend that you use the Contact Us link (at the bottom of every page) to let us know so we can try to recover your project.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Thank you for acknowledging this issue!

Currently working on Move Your Mouse: Showtime, but I'm also really inactive so it probably won't be done for like 99 years

Thanks for sharing it. Only concern is that what if in the future people want to work on those affected projects after they get reverted to the version without question marks (At least after three weeks, one or two months after the incident happened)? Or you say that only if a project has been restored to the version that doesn't have any question mark can be edited?

the js console says the cause is a 404 error when trying to get the costume files from the server, but for me there is no 404 error when I go to the link and it downloads a zip file
EDIT: peasant of the page
