    The above is what chunk corruption errors look like. Chunk corruption can cause a plethora of problems including: lag, world data not saving, world holes, malfunctioning plugins, and other odd behavior. There aren't many solutions to fixing it other than by using a program such as MCEdit to remove the damaged area or using chunk repair utilities (if they are not outdated/still in development), restoring a backup of the world from before the issue started or by starting a new world completely.
