As you reading are undoubtedly aware now, the Lemmy.one instance experienced a massive failure this weekend. Unfortunately the data was not in a recoverable state, so the server was restored from a July 26th backup, and data after that time is likely lost.

Since this occurred while I was out of town, I haven’t had the time to collect all the details of what happened, so I will have to post more information at a later time.

    My biggest concern was that there was no way to find information about what was going on. Your Mastodon had no information.

    There was a thread on Lemmy support about it and some people thought the instance was gone forever.

      I got confused, and ended up making an alternative account in another instance. Glad Ido not have to worry about it, but redundancy is a virtue.

        With each day with no news I started considering making another lemmy account in case this one didn’t come back. I didn’t know which one to make my new home though, since I liked privacyguides run one the best.

      Yeah really would be good to have a separatly hosted status page or something, but I understand that is a luxury. Considering Jonah has freely volunteered to host it’s hard to complain.

    Thank you for your work! No one is expecting you to be always available, considering this is voluntary work you are doing.

    Just another appreciation comment here. Thank you! Glad it was just temporary, and hope it doesn’t cause you too much stress.

    Thank you for your hard work none-the-less.

    I had a feeling it was just that. I heard rumbles about some type of issue in the lemmy software itself; although I don’t know the exact details. It appears similar problems happened to other instances as well; so don’t take it too hard…several massive instances did in fact crash.

    Does anyone know why this is still showing up at the top of my “active” feed?

    Glad to be back; Thanks, man!

    What’s up with browsing lemmy.world? Did it de-federate from us here or is it a syncing issue?

    [Edit]Fine now
