Around 2pm on Sunday afternoon, the server that both the Treasury and Chat rooms run crashed when a record number of people tried to connect within a short time frame.

The good news is that we keep breaking records with Treasury traffic.

The bad news is we haven’t yet come up with a proper scalable fix that both immediately corrects the current problem and solves the new high record undoubtedly not far away. A solution exists.

Thanks for your patience and apologies to anyone who was disconnected just moments before the open Treasury spot arrived.

The Treasury list limit was temporarily raised to 270 after the problem was identified and repaired in an effort to help give some a second chance at a new list.
