Nathan Weinberg is reporting that hundreds of Google users have found their Personalized Homepages settings in a flux.

Users are coming into their accounts and seeing them rolled back several months, losing the last few months of customizations, and any attempt to edit their pages and fix it gets rolled backwards.

Google appears to be aware of the problem, it just doesn’t know how to fix it…yet.

Yikes! So sorry about this everyone… but thanks so much for coming here to report it. We’re now in frantic-chase-down-this-bug mode here at the Googleplex, and I hope to have more info for you soon.

For now, we’re not entirely sure of this, but it’s possible that changing your homepage theme might cause the problem. SO, if you still have your homepage intact, please avoid changing your theme until
further notice.

The big question I know you’ll all want answered is whether you’ll get your homepage back once we sort things out… and the really honest answer is that I hope so, but I just don’t know yet.

Thanks for all your patience and helpful details. I will update this thread as soon as I can.

As we were saying, if you use Google’s free services, don’t expect them to be available 24/7.

  • It’s just like you said… if it’s free you can’t demand much from it. You can’t have your cake and eat it to! :S
