Ok, time to recreate all the newsbot accounts again

At least with a clean DB the website is snappier 😀

So this is kinda cool... when you nuke an instance and give it a new DB, the federated starts to re-pop. Everyone else's sidekiq jobs I guess

Sorry if I'm re-following you. I screwed something up when upgrading to 2.4.4 and had to completely nuke my database.

I'm sure it's something I did.

Although on a fresh DB I had to manually go in the db and DROP INDEX index_statuses_20180106 in order to get the rake db:migrate job to run through to completion. 👀 @Gargron

Ok, this is 2.4.4 installed. Let's hope everything is stable.
