Lempod is intermittently unavailable.
This is under investigation.
A fix is in place, we are monitoring for stability. Some posts were delayed by up to an hour.
Made some improvements to server monitoring and management.
Stability issues are occurring again. Investigating. Post engagements are not being affected by this issue.
A bug has been discovered that causes application crashes whenever the Chrome extension requests an update for the notification badge. This only affects the Lempod site and does not affect post engagements.
However, some users who were drafting a post may experience data corruption. We recommend deleting your post engagements and re-creating them. (Update: We are aware of one user who experienced data corruption since the server crashed at the exact moment that they clicked the Begin Post Engagement button).
The fix has been completed and is in the process of being deployed to production.
A code update has been deployed. We are monitoring the app closely.

The PIR (Post-Incident-Review) results are in. More info on the bug: it caused a server crash only when the time left to engage a new post was 1 hour and the Chrome extension requestd an update for the notification badge.
