Update: Reddit is back online. See below for detail.

Online discussion board Reddit is having issues today — the downdetector website shows that Reddit is currently not accessible for some users.

Update at 4:52 p.m. Pacific: The Reddit Status Twitter account has just tweeted out confirmation of the outage.

“We’re having some troubles dealing with the additional load right now. We’re working on it,” the company said in a status update.

Update at 5:07 p.m. Pacific: Some subreddits are working, but the homepage still isn’t loading for me.

Update at 5:13 p.m. Pacific: The Reddit homepage is now consistently loading for me.

Update at 5:21 p.m. Pacific: The Reddit team says it has “stabilized the site.”

The outage is happening following attacks in Paris, where 140 people are reported to have died. Earlier today, the Reddit logo in the top left corner of the website featured a French flag.

Reddit experienced an outage in September as a result of downtime at public cloud Amazon Web Services. Reddit also had an Amazon-related outage in 2011.
