Member's "about" field is always null or the empty string since last night

Since last night, API responses from Paging through a list of pledges (<campaign_id>/pledges?include=patron.null,reward.null&page%5Bcount%5D=1000) show null or the empty string ('') for all included user objects.

This missing data is highly problematic for us because we were using the about field to encourage users to add (unsupported) social links to the ever-diminishing list of supported third party website integrations.

Moreover, it seems the about field no longer exists in the user settings pages on the Patreon website, which may explain its disappearance from the API. Nevertheless, as stated, this breaks our integration.

Is this still the case as of this moment?

Yes. But surely you can tell just as well as me?
