Over the past few days you may have noticed we had some performance issues. A combination of factors including a rather large and awesome spike in new user traffic, the Amazon U.S. East outage on Friday, and getting bitten by some of those “Oh, THAT’s why we disabled that!” moments led to a perfect storm of operational issues, and, unfortunately, downtime to the site.
We’ve stabilized the site, and are putting a rush on some infrastructure improvements that were already in the pipeline. We’re proud of the high amount of uptime we provide, but sometimes the universe has other plans.
Thanks for your patience and understanding while we work to provide you a better experience. If you have any questions, or if there is anything else at all we can help with, don’t hesitate to contact firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know.
