[HOT] Bounding box not in iD Editor anymore

We held a mapathon yesterday evening (5pm - 7pm US MST) with about 60
people in attendance.  None of the participants ever got the purple box
 bounding box in iD, despite multiple attempts. I see it is now working.
Was there a problem yesterday that has subsequently been fixed?
