This is due to a truncate command being run on the local statuses table, including the cascade option to include other related tables.
Normal functionality is there, so I don't think anything else has been affected. I'll try to see if there's a way of reimporting our user account exports, but if not:
Whitespashe.uk has been given a fresh start!
Yeah, I ignored a database error at the beginning of my mastodon journey, then it blocked a successful upgrade to a newer version.

This site was named after this project, as it represents a desire to create whilst simultaneously sticking it to the Man (or in this case, the hellscape that is Twitter).
