Current Issues

:orange_circle: Partial Outage

:purple_circle: Investigating:

The team is still investigating on why the pop-up shows up for some community members - the bug with the world disappearing as soon as the pop-up is displayed is known and will be fixed for a future update.
Temporary workaround: Re-enabling data streaming in the option settings “solves” the issue.
