Discord Say It almost completely resolved a “widespread API outage” that prevented users from logging into the chat platform for hours on Wednesday. According to the company, the log-in rate limit has been lifted and “Discord is almost back to normal.”
Finally, we can all share memes and annoy each other by talking too much in tense FPS skirmishes.
“Over the next hour, some Discord servers may continue to see some issues with interacting with bots using slash commands,” the company said. “As part of resolving the incident, we needed to reduce the load on the database, and we shut down part of the slash command system.”
Discord first reported the outage at 11:49 a.m. Wednesday. By noon, it said it had found two issues, one related to the API and one related to one of its “database clusters.” At the time, Discord limited the speed at which users could log in.
At 12:30 p.m. PT, Discord said its systems were healthy again, but didn’t restore access to all users until after 2 p.m.
“We will complete our internal post-mortem process to really gain insight into what’s going on here, but if you’re unable to log in or experience other issues today, we apologize for the inconvenience,” the company said.
