Reddit goes down for emergency maintenance

Reddit is coming back online after an outage that lasted more than an hour.

The issues began around 3:26 p.m. PT, according to the site’s status page, following “a slight issue with a routine software upgrade.”

Though the company promised to be back online “momentarily,” it wasn’t until more than an hour later — at 4:57 p.m. PT — when they updated to say “bringing the site back slowly.”

Complain on Twitter

While it was down, users who tried to visit the site were greeted with a message saying “Reddit is down for emergency maintenance.” Other users saw error pages.

According to Mashable unsurprisingly, Redditors did not take the roughly 90-minute downtime well.

So what do you do when the front page of the internet goes down? Complain on Twitter, of course.

And Reddit comes back

With Reddit being Reddit, it only took a few minutes after the site came back online for Redditors to begin sharing their experiences of the outage on AskReddit.
