Update more than this archaic structure of a forum. Notes should be posted on Discord as its an Official medium. Not links to the forums that most dont want to visit.
I have no access to the official Discord server right now as it is well past my work shift. I did, however, pass the link to the thread to people who should be able to post and I expect it's been put into announcements already.
On the matter of compensation, I will certainly be talking about it with the Dev Team. We'll see what can be done.
To explain the situation in more detail, the issue does not affect the entire server, but it did affect several segments. We did several maintenance sessions earlier on - all of them were announced. It took a while for more reports to come through, once the scope of the issue became clear we took the necessary steps to reboot the server. This happened fairly recently, and I made the post as soon as I was able (on account of it being night and not work hours). Right now the server is up, but we are in the process of monitoring it to see if the issue has been fully resolved or not. Stand by for more information.
