"This morning I'm back in SH after looking like I was coming out of it yesterday"

WOW, 5 months post Jagger and webmasters are just happy that pages can be crawled and indexed.
Still no across the board complete conical fix, ancient supplemental issues, 404 pages, it just goes on and on and on.....
Google, please tell me you have something big around the corner. The past 5 months efforts have yielded very little value in the quality of the serps for your users.
Now everything is completely restored including the ranking BUT there are less of the back end / stray supplementals that were there before 21 Feb.
So the index count is down - but trimmed to the bone showing only "good" non-supp pages and a handful of the supp's (before I had dozens).
Still early days - I doubt this adjustment is over yet. There may be more surprises to come
My status - actual site pages: 1,080
BD DCs - 280 pages with 80 being supplemental
Non BD DC - 1,030 pages
GBot Activity as of March 11th
Mozilla GBot - 1,447 pages
Googlebot 2.1 - 1,064 pages
Not sure what they fixed, if anything.
Today reporting as 528 pages on BD with 80 being supplemental. An improvement! I'm going to try to avoid weather reports, but this is the first positive movement for me on a BD center in months now.
The sites I have seen come back show some pages with Cache dates before March.
So it was not just the case of newly crawled pages being added to the serps but some pages being added back in.
BillyS - apart from this supplemental issue, IMO Big Daddy has been very stale for changes ever since launch in November time.
the results are mostly on autralia and france
Some came back on march 11, and since them more and more pages are slowly, but surely, showing up again with their original ranking.
The fix seems on its way.
Strange thing, based on their cache, it looks like some pages re-appear in their pre-desindexing version, and others re-appear as the result of a new crawl.
All my pages are back now with caches all current. Back as of 3-12 AM.
Today my pages are starting to crawl back into the the pre supplemental disaster serp position. Not all, but at least some and my traffic is increasing.
I was definately in the dumper before yesterday.
Hang in there all, hopefully more good news is on the way.
Lost 10,000 pages but I feel most of these were old pages or duplicate content issues. My site does not have 12,000 pages it has very close to the site command Google is displaying now.
I did have a fourm at one time but deleted it about 5 months ago this would account for a good number of pages gone.
Hope this helps you figure out were you are at in this
"I have a question to those which have left the Supplemental hell:
Have the pages which appeared again a new cache (without exception) -> crawled in the last 4-5 days?
Or did also pages return with older caches? "
