    The same exact thing just happened to me and my husband when we logged in today and were were on day 20 on my server.  I verified files but still no luck, everything is reset to level 1 but we still have all our items we made over the past week.

    Thank you for reporting.

    There were some changes in the new update that would break player progression for some.  Unfortunately,  this can often happen while in experimental,  and is not considered a bug.
