Gitlab id error

URL of experiment: Pavlovia

Description of the problem:
I am facing the same issue with all of my experiments. after re-opening them i receive an error

KeyError: ‘Could not find GitLab project with id 223908.’

I made sure that the .git folder is in the same directory.
there is also a .gitignore file which if I delete then i am asked to create a whole new project.

as a note- i am preparing these projects on google drive. Could that be contributing to the issue?
