Official #4523 down #4517 looted corpse

Played a couple of weeks on Official LATAM #4523 and it’s been down for over 3 days (lagged badly before that). No news about it.
Lost all time invested.
Started on #4517 and found out other players could loot my corpse on that PvE server even with the “others can loot” unchecked. Any idea on why?

P.D.: Didn’t want to fill the forum with two posts.
