A Single Light

A single light,
In a darkened room
A hooded figure

An incomplete heart
Or a misleading mind
The source of smiles
She cannot find

Teardrops fall
Past the freckles on her nose
And two hands hold
Remains of a dead rose

A single light turns off
The room becomes unseen
The hooded figure forever will be

I want to apologise for the delay here; I ripped down the staging site and it’s infra space on the production cluster as part of a cost savings effort just before the discovery of the source of these issues.

I am just about through the re-arch of my at home on-prem servers to support running all this from home again. Just need to ensure I have it setup to be prod-like so I can reproduce and verify the problem and verify it’s solved on staging. I’ll have these addressed as soon as I can.

Finally through the slog of getting the infra re-architecture done and now able to move on to these fixes.

The following bugs are now fixed:

  • Users getting 403 errors on messages endpoints, causing them to be unable to view messages.

  • Unverified users being removed before 14 day time limit.

  • Users getting 403 errors on mark all and clear all options.

Apologies for the delays in resolving these.

I’ve noted that since the updates that came with these fixes, mobile sessions in Firefox and Edge on Android are not able to stay alive for the full 24 hours, but I’ve not yet understood why. Desktop versions of the same browsers seem unaffected.. I’m looking into it.

FWIW, if you encounter a weird state because of this on mobile, just refresh the page and log back in.

Session persistence is fixed, along with all issues except whatever is causing about 1 in 20 verification tokens to crash the app after verification completes. That last one is a bit hard to track down as the actual error gets cut off the logs.
