The Treasury and Chat Status

Very early this morning, the server that powers both the Treasury and chat rooms crashed. This unfortunately rendered both features inaccessible.

They were restored back to the point of functionality, but Etsy’s resident Flash guru Jared has taken measures to troubleshoot this issue and prevent it from happening again.

 "I think we found part of the problem, but in order to fix it, we need to do some serious housecleaning.

We’re going to keep the maximum number of lists at 1 (actually I better make the limit 0) until all the current lists expire. At that time we’ll take the Treasury down for an hour, make scheduled repairs, then bring it back up hopefully in full form.

Thank you all for your patience, understanding, and extremely kind words!

– Jared"
