Discord Down

Those who use Discord as their primary tool for communicating in games, you might be wondering why it’s taking ages for your buddies to reply to your messages. Well, it’s not them (or you), but rather, Discord down reports are surfacing this March 8!

Discord Down and Messages Issues This March 8:

Update: According to Discord, things should be going back to normal now…

Update – Oncall Engineering has brought the media infrastructure back online, media embeds should be functional again. Message acknowledgement has also been re-enabled. We are continuing to work to restore full functionality. Typing events are still disabled at this time and we are investigating reports from bot developers regarding unexpected 403 errors.
Mar 812:19 PST
Identified – Remediations are working and traffic is coming back online. While we work to restore full service some functionality will remain intentionally disabled until the service stabilizes, typing events and message acknowledgement. Other functionality remains to be restored, media embeds may not work correctly at this time.
Mar 811:49 PST
Update – We are working with our providers to correct the root cause. We believe the cause is upstream of our service and our providers are working on determining and correcting the issue upstream. In the interim we are implementing a set of remediations to work around the issue. As the service comes back up some functionality will be intentionally disabled, namely, typing events and message acknowledge.
