“Sorry, for some reason Reddit can’t be reached.” It’s a message all redditors dread to see, but over the past 12 or so hours, many have seen versions of the text on the site’s homepage during a Reddit outage that started Tuesday evening

Around 6pm CT Monday evening, Reddit went down and the company began investigating what was going on. According to Twitter, Reddit identified and fixed a problem later that evening, but many users, both on web and mobile, were still experiencing a Reddit outage.

Earlier this morning, a number of users still couldn’t access the site. While Reddit believed the issue to be fixed, users were seeing “Our CDN was unable to reach our server” errors and were unable to reach the site’s homepage or login page. This error is an issue on Reddit’s end and has nothing to do with a user’s machine or internet connection.

Reddit is one of the most popular sites on the internet. As of data aggregated in April by Hootsuite, it had actually surpassed Twitter in terms of daily active users. In May, it became the third most popular destination on the internet.

At the time of writing, Reddit’s official status website says that all things are currently operational, and Twitter users seem to have resumed tweeting Reddit links as normal. The website seems to be loading normally again.
