Reddit appears to recovering from some big issues that lasted for about an hour. While outages were happening, I couldn’t load any Reddit pages on my browsers where I’m logged into the site — usually, I ran into an error message, though I also hit a blank white screen. However, if I tried to visit the site while logged out, pages loaded fine. As I write this, I’m not having any troubles browsing Reddit.
Things weren’t just down for me. A few colleagues here at The Verge were having some troubles loading pages as well, and Downdetector showed a peak of around 30,000 user reports.
