And for everyone here, did the problem start mid January? Or have we got anyone here who only started to run into this more recently?
I noticed it 14 or 15 January -- right after the galactic update for that week. I assumed it came about because of some change made with the weekly update and expected it would be resolved with the next weekly update. There were some other changes that may or may not have a bearing. I'll put that it in a separate post.
Absolutely. I don't doubt our Devs will have already approached the problem from this angle. I'm largely out here, flapping about of my own volition, like an overenthusiastic detective sniffing for any tiny clue that may help to solve the case.
