Yeah, maybe it's time for a #getloud movement to start up again .. against Amazon in general.

Is the "What Are Amazon Doing?" sub-forum for daily issues on their platform? Currently, we've got several that are ongoing:

1) Ebooks disappearing for different markets (a growing issue)
2) Series pages screwed up or missing
3) Glitches/Delays uploading to KDP, some very prolonged (weeks)
4) AMS funkiness (several of us yesterday suffered extraordinary spend numbers)

What else?

A daily status board would be nice.

I'm holding releases until #3 is no longer an issue and AMS authorities explain to me what happened yesterday.

Publishing since May 2017. Writing full time since January 2018 general fiction and satire.

I think revisions via KDP, including price changes, have been taking a very long time to go through as well. Also people have had trouble updating their blurbs. And people have said sales have been very low or delayed or sporadic in being reported.

There's been sporadic issues of people having the html tags displayed in their descriptions without there actually being any fault with the tags (ie all opened and closed properly).  Amazon have acknowledged it's an internal issue and eventually fix the descriptions.
