Sorry for the downtime!

I woke up this morning to a message from our main developer explaining the downtime last night (Taipei time). He explained a human error caused a data corruption in our production database, which eventually led to our first downtime in five months.

The dev team restored a backup from 11PM UTC+2 yesterday and we lost the submissions made between 11PM and 11.15PM UTC+2 when we took the server down for maintainance.

We will continue our work to improve your HWBOT experience. Sorry for the inconvenience!

This night we suffered a 2h downtime, the first in 5 months time. Due to a dev error the production database was corrupted at 23:15 +2h UTC.

We restored a database backup of 23:00 +2 UTC shortly after, which was up and running at 01:00 AM this morning. Submissions made between 23:00 and 23:15h have been lost, our apologies for the inconvenience!
