On August 24, 2023 between 10:41 AM PDT to 4:10 PM PDT, channel sections were missing from some users' sidebars.
We determined that a recent update in code failed to process an older format of data objects coming from our cache.
While we reverted this change and saw the majority of the issue resolved, this action caused an issue localized to the new data format and some users were still affected.
Once we pushed a fix to normalize and handle all objects in the cache, channel sections were restored for all impacted users.
