While Iíve  been off putting my Pi as a webcam (as still yet to create a portable power supply for it)
This request may be in the wrong spot, if so, you may move it to the appropriate area.

One thing is when the software Iím running in my Pi2 has a hiccup, itíll error itself and put strange readings.  Our internet went down a while ago  and when it came back up, it reported a wind gust of 348km/h, would there be a way down the track to allow users to edit their data we can remove and change the errored data? And even have a way to upload data packets if hours of data have errored as mine was flat lining for a tad least 3 days before I realised on what it was doing

I'm running WeatherCat to send data to my PWS. Wonder of anyone else is having a similar problem. About every 24 hours I notice the weather station getting behind. If I restart WeatherCat the PWS start showing the the current data WeatherCat is uploading. If I don't catch the missing uploads in a few hours, the PWS drops off and tells me how many hours since last update. 48 hours yesterday was the longes time the station has stayed up since the outage. Restarting WeatherCat has always fixed the issue. When the PWS is working, WeatherCat has been saying 100% acknowledgment and Current Status is Running. If data is not uploading, acknowledgments is less than 100% and current status is Starting. I am wondering  why restarting the WeatherCat always fixes the problem. Thanks

... or frustrated that your weather cam isn't showing up ...
There are other resources, eg:  http://www.the-webcam-network.com/
No idea whether they have the capacity to handle a sudden surge of former wu cams ...

One that underpins it is apparently:
https://www.webcamgalore.com/

Both have ties to Germany, but might be hosted anywhere ...

A few more possibilities:  https://www.accuweather.com/en/weather-blogs/weathermatrix/7-ways-to-get-your-weather-webcam-online/70003305

Interesting update occurred with my Status message  within the pasth 24 hours. 

I put the date at the beginning of all my Status messages and my last update, up until yesterday,  showed 12/27/2017.  I've also been checking and changing this Status message almost every day since the beginning of January.  This morning I checked and it's now showing the update I made on 1/6/2018..

Interesting indeed. I just checked mine and whaddayaknow, it's changed. But not to any specific date, just one of my random musings around early February where I tacked on "(Or have they?)" to my "...webcams have returned".  As I said on Trello, no Status is better than Dated Status.  :roll:

It's getting more interesting - two updates in 24 hours...now I'm showing 2/08/2018 in my status.  Something's afoot at WU.

Hi Sean
Can you tell me if the mesomap function will be re-introduced?
If not I will delete the page from my site.
Best regards
Paul

OMG OMG OMG!!!!!!!!!!!

Can it be true? The favorites looks like it's working again?????????  \:D/

Although at first a random station pops up, it quickly refreshes to the PWS chosen in favorites. Wow, they are working on stuff!

Let's see how long it lasts...  :roll:

FYI: They are updating info on the Trello site, on a semi-regular basis.

My webcam uploads have been fairly consistent the past two days.

Later that day:  I'm happy to report that my, hopefully final, switch back to FTP is now producing great results. Webcam images are appearing nearly immediately after they hit the WU servers. Progress!

:roll: Hey stickman, I thought they fixed you!

Word to the wise. Don't bother switching between FTP and URL in hopes of seeing your wondercam again. It's a 24 hour waiting game of whack-a-mole.

Does anyone know the meaning behind the dashed outline symbology shown in the attachment?  Does that mean "calm" wind?...or something else?  Is it an artifact of the other lingering WU issues?

Perhaps this holds true?

https://www.wxforum.net/index.php?topic=24277.0

If the link is broken, the station doesnít have wind measurements AFAIK.

LOL, right, but I think there should be a Skull-&-Crossbones for stations reporting ridiculous wind speeds  #-o

Thanks for the info.  I'm reporting 0 m.p.h. for calm winds.  I'll check the weeWX forum to see if that's what I should be reporting or if I can clear this issue up with a setting modification.

OK, for a start they can fix the website which is in very sad shape with many issues. I don't think we need to cut them any slack for the lack of quality and the loss of features as they race to be the worst instead of the best as they once were. Here is a link to 179 reviews:

Well they fixed the station note, but broke the rest of the site.
9 times out of 10 this is all you get when you try and look at your Dashboard:

You will.  They've quit trying to save it and now the roof is caving in.

They're sending out surveys which basically are about what we want them to put on the weather.com site.  The days of WU are very limited...I wouldn't be surprised if it were gone by July.

The silence from WU is defening. It would be such a shame to lose their services, but as pointed out in other posts, their reputation is very tarnished. Such a classic example of big fish eating little fish and spitting them out cuz they taste funny.
