Reddit is Down for About 3 Hours Now
In what is a very rare occurrence, it appears that something has gone wrong with Reddit's systems for the third hour now.
As yours truly was nosing about trying to bring you the latest on Reddit, it wasn't working. I use Reddit on the web via desktop and was kinda confused to find that I had been logged out. I also couldn't access r/maniaincc, our subreddit which is usually the first Reddit link that appears in my search suggestions when I type 'r'. After some research, I've discovered that Reddit is experiencing an outage.
Reddit Has Been Down for About 3 Hours
In what is a very rare occurrence, it appears that something has gone wrong with Reddit's systems for the third hour now. The outage, Reddit Status reports, affects Reddit on Desktop and Mobile, with a partial outage on their Native Web App. What this means is app users may experience a pretty broken interface that may show posts but not comment threads, as per the verge. Reddit is making light of the situation, however, saying that they'll be "up and running again soon."
Enjoy the productivity. We'll be up and running again soon.— Reddit (@Reddit) March 14, 2023
Reddit Says They've Found a Fix
Reddit, via their Reddit Status page on Twitter, have since notified users that they've "identified a fix which may take some time to implement", and will be getting their systems back online as soon as possible.
Identified: We’ve identified a fix which may take some time to implement, in the meantime ready your bananas 🍌 (or eat them!). https://t.co/MrQHiFwwox— Reddit Status (@redditstatus) March 14, 2023
Update - 3:26 AM (GMT + 3) 15th March 2023: Reddit is now working for me and I think Reddit is slowly coming back up now. Check for updates on the situation on the Reddit Status Page.
