Original Post

jared says

Several hundred Treasuries from yesterday suddenly disappeared this afternoon. While they were gone, many new lists were created. We were able to recover the lists from yesterday, but the new ones created during this time will most like be lost.

A small number of comments and views may have also been lost.

The problem was caused by a backup accidentally restored by our hosting facility at the wrong time.

You should now see your lists from yesterday. List created during the anomaly may still be available, but will eventually be overwritten (most likely during the next Treasury creation event window).

It may take another couple of minutes before all lists are restored. Thanks for your patience.

Please, if you can, post a link to any Treasury lists you're still having a problem with and we'll see what might be going on. Thanks!
