Reddit has been experiencing intermittent outages since Monday, May 27.
The social media behemoth notified users it was investigating an issue at 6:01 p.m. PT on Monday night following reports of "elevated error rates". Roughly 20 minutes later, the Reddit status site confirmed it had implemented a fix and was "monitoring the results."
Downdetector, which monitors website outages, has seen a large spike in reports as of 6:00 p.m. PT. At this stage, the error is limited to desktop users and does not appear to affect Reddit's app or mobile site. At time of writing, we are still seeing the "service unavailable" message when accessing on desktop. Some users are reporting access via Microsoft Edge but not Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.
As of 8 p.m PT, services appear to have been restored.
Reddit did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
