July 2021 Ratelimit issues

Update July 10: While ratelimiting remains heavier than usual, the issue appears to be resolved. Most users should now be able to use Later with minimal impact. When in doubt, schedule 15 minutes apart!

As you may have noticed, Later for Reddit has been having some trouble getting posts to Reddit lately. Since about a week ago, many post attempts are receiving RATELIMIT errors (what's a ratelimit?), even for users that have not posted recently. The overall impact of this is that most posts for the past week have failed. Sorry about that!

What's happened so far?

What is being done about it?

In summary, I have no idea what's going on and the future remains stubbornly unknowable. If you know someone at Reddit who can tell me wtf is happening, or if you have any other questions, please contact support or check out the subreddit!
