Blog entry Missing rice!

02 February 2011

If you are a Freericer who regular checks back in on your account and keeps a small part of the day free to help raise rice (there are many of us), you will have noticed a drop in your rice totals yesterday.

Our apologies for causing concern - we upgraded the Freerice database and servers to increase the speed of the site. You will note that questions are now loading faster. However, in the process, the old database was not uploaded correctly resulting in rice totals dropping dramatically.

We have now rectified the situation and you should see your totals are restored. But please let us know if the problem persists?

Many thanks for taking the time to play Freerice and raise rice!

Hi, I did notice this drop yesterday and then spent a long time last night regaining the original amount I had (39,090 grains). This morning when I woke up the original number I had was back but the 38,700 grains I got last night were not included. Is there anyway to get this fixed?

I am hosting a competition for my high school to see which grade can donate the most rice on your website. I created four groups yesterday on your website (one for each class), and they are all gone today.
