The API was down very briefly this morning at 8:32AM and 8:45AM for about a minute each time.

This was related to Monday’s downtime incident, with our authentication database briefly failing each time. Since Monday, we had already fixed our monitoring system, and so we were swiftly alerted to the errors and were able to mitigate them.

In response to this downtime, we’ve made several changes to the database to reduce the risk of further errors; there remains more work to do, but this should prevent downtime until we’re able to cut over to the new layer mentioned in the previous incident report.

Thanks again for your support!
