Yeah I'm still noticing the same weirdness going on as well. Mine & Sean's ports - and specifically with those two now weird duplicates on the end pages.
I was not experiencing the duplicate issue that others were experiencing yesterday, but today I am.
This is clearly something wrong with the indexing and/or search functionality.
Perhaps it is time to get a dedicated UX Expert on board to iron out these wrinkles.

We have someone looking at it and will post any updates we can.

No indexing has happened for the 2nd 24 hour period, can we have some feedback as to when this will happen, otherwise it's easier for me to remove the 2 recently uploaded and accepted illustrations which are delayed in showing up in my portfolio and which, past experience tells me, will be disadvantaged in searches?

I had a peek again today, and from my end I am not seeing the issues that I saw before with the odd search.
I checked mine and Sean's ports and from where I sit it looked good so far.
I also noticed that there is a marked increase in downloads happening that was not happening when there were these search problems earlier this week. I am not complaining about the increase Although it is a bit of a letdown that it seems that these weird search issues did actually affect downloads, and I'm not assuming - I'm just looking at the numbers. Just some food for thought there to pass on up to HQ.
Every time there is a problem like this it not only affects the contributor's ability to make money - but Getty's as well.
