Used the control panel grief alerts while the server was restarting (might have effected it) and it came up with grief alerts from 01:10, 20 Oct 2014 or before. Attaching screenshot. Other than this the control panel works completely fine for me and I use it quite a lot.
@TheDarkrai85 suggested that it could have been my browser viewing a cached copy of the page, so this might be invalid, also could be similar to how passive saw no grief alerts.
Other note: after refreshing the grief alert page it fixed and continued to work great.
It seems to be working fine for me too now, maybe just a glitch with my browser.
