This bug has already been posted by Firebrand1, however it was not labeled ROBLOXCRITICAL and I am unsure if any admin has noticed it yet.
Data persistence loading has been bugged since about noon CDT Friday. I’ve seen reports of people having the same problem in other games around the same time so I don’t believe this is a bug isolated to me. I have done testing on about 4 places and the bug will occur regardless of whether anything had been previously saved to the place or the user.
Whenever this bug occurs there will be a warning and an error in the Server Log console tab:
httpGet https://data.roblox.com/Persistence/GetBlobUrl.ashx?placeid=46173287&userid=715577 failed. Trying again. Error: CURL error (curl_easy_perform): Couldn’t resolve host name (6) Elapsed time: 0.220257
Content failed because CURL error (curl_easy_perform): Couldn’t resolve host name (6)
This bug happens most of the times that I’d join a server and rarely would properly load, so it is possible to get around it by just rejoining a lot.
Saving however seems to be fine and works independently of this error; however when this error occurs and anything new is saved then everything that wasn’t loaded is deleted. This may cause players to start over and unknowingly clear data that is still there, or cause an autosave feature to automatically do that for them.
