The Operations Team is tracing a leak in the voice chat system.
Over time, backbone services for various regions can become bloated and cause failure in group voice chats. Operations is activating debugging code to better assess the bug. Until there’s a fix, backbone segments will periodically have to be rebooted, which will cause about 4-5 minutes of presence issues for avatars who happen to be associated with one another through those segments. Mainly, residents may find themselves temporarily unable to see friends online status correctly.
We apologize for the inconvenience. We have multiple developers working to resolve this issue.
