Cover art problem

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f7cfa5c4148> #<Tag:0x00007f7cfa5c4080>

The cover art on this release was last updated 3 years ago, but it’s not showing up here: https://beta.musicbrainz.org/release/bebd90ae-8bfe-4dfd-9980-ea7f44b53de8/cover-art

I can click through to the original artwork, but not the thumbnails.

Is this likely to resolve itself? Should I try removing the artwork and readding it?

There was a wrong image added in March 2017 (id: 16271260173).
In May 2017 someone noticed and replaced it (id: 16804810460)

For some reason the index.json wasn’t updated which caused the thumbnail generation to fail.

So is there a solution? Or do we have to wait for it to get fixed on the back end?

Seems it can’t hurt to try and upload the image again and see if that fixes it.

Well, I uploaded it again, which worked AND made the old one show up. So I canceled the new one and the old one is happy now. :sunglasses:
