On March 17th at 6:29pm PDT, we received a report that the search feature was not returning the most recently posted messages. An internal investigation was launched.
We established that this was caused by a change made to the search infrastructure tooling at 5:00pm PDT. This resulted in search indexing failing to return messages posted after this change. Once this was identified, we were able to deploy a fix and resolve the issue at 8:37pm PDT on March 17th.
We’re investigating the root cause, as well as making plans to ensure this doesn’t happen in the future.
