Reddit was suffering an hours-long issue on Tuesday that made the popular discussion site inaccessible for many users — and the company didn’t have an ETA on when it will be resolved.
In an update at 2:43 p.m. PT, Reddit’s status page said, “We’ve identified a fix which may take some time to implement.
User reports of problems accessing Reddit’s website and apps spiked around noon PT on Tuesday, topping more than 60,000 outage reports, according to monitoring site Downdetector. The Reddit status page, at 12:18 p.m. PT, posted, “Investigating – Reddit is currently offline. We’re working to identify the issue” and subsequently said the problems stemmed from an “internal systems issue.”
In an update four hours after its initial announcement, Reddit said it had “implemented our fix” and was “slowly allowing things to ramp back up” and later confirmed “things are back in order” after a nearly six-hour outage.
Users who visited the website when it was offline saw blank boxes in some places where threads and comments would normally be shown. As of writing the website pages now show content and it appears to be functioning normally.
Reddit is a popular platform for cryptocurrency investors and enthusiasts, with some of the more popular subreddits including r/CryptoCurrency, r/Bitcoin and r/CryptoMarkets.
According to the outage monitoring platform Downdetector.com, tens of thousands have already reported experiencing app, website, and server connection issues.
While Reddit is yet to pinpoint the cause of these connection issues, errors seen by affected users currently seem to suggest ongoing CDN configuration issues.
Recently, the social network was also affected by an almost 4-hour-long partial outage on February 10 that led to a severely degraded search experience and stale subreddit feeds for desktop users.
Five days later, on February 15, Reddit was also hit by a major outage blocking access to the home feed and “preventing comments, awards and karma from displaying or processing correctly” for roughly 30 minutes.
Reddit functionality had been restored for some users as of 7:18 p.m., according to another update. It would take time for everything to reach full running capacity, and some users still reported an inability to access the website or app.
Reports indicate Reddit has returned to mostly normal operation. As of 8:17 p.m. EST, Reddit status says it is “almost back.”
Update: 8:24 p.m. EST: Reddit has returned to normal operations. Users should have full access to the app and website.
