  • The case of the missing lists has been solved. Turns out they're all invite-only. The plan had been to temporarily convert those to creator-only until we got email notifications working, but we inadvertently made them invisible.

    We have a fix for it on deck, but we're going to do some testing and consolidation and generally batten down the hatches a little before putting it into production. It should happen tomorrow night, barring anything unforeseen. Thanks very much for your patience on this everyone. Your lists will be back in your arms again soon.

  • Same here. Note the difference between the URL of this page ("/words/word/lists") and the URL your bracket-link points to ("/words/lists") and you'll identify the problem. At some point John added the additional "word" subdirectory and caused all the old higher-level pages to forward to the new lower level so existing links wouldn't break, with the exception of forwarding special pages, like lists and some others that I can't remember right now. However, I think he forgot to change the bracket-to-link converter accordingly, which still generates the old-format URLs.
