Discord says (opens in new tab) it has almost completely resolved a "widespread API outage" that blocked users from logging into the chat platform for hours on Wednesday. According to the company, login rate limits have been removed, and "Discord is almost back to normal."
Finally, we can all go back to sharing memes and annoying each other by talking too much during tense FPS skirmishes.
"Over the next hour, some Discord servers may continue to see some issues interacting with bots using slash commands," said the company. "As part of resolving the incident, we needed to reduce load on our databases and we turned down some parts of our slash command system."
Discord first reported the outage Wednesday morning at 11:49 am Pacific. At around noon, it said it had identified two issues, one with the API and another with one of its "database clusters." At that point, Discord limited the rate at which users could log in.
At 12:30 pm Pacific, Discord said that its systems were healthy again, but it wasn't until after 2 pm that access was restored for all users.
"We are going to complete our internal postmortem process to really dig in and understand exactly what happened here, but we really apologize for the inconvenience if you were unable to login today or had other issues," said the company.
