Popular social, news, and entertainment website Reddit is reportedly suffering issues, with users worldwide unable to access the site on Thursday, July 11.

The popular website is home to thousands of communities, allowing users to discuss their favorite pastimes or current events with people who share the same interests from around the world.

While the website refers to itself as the front page of the internet, it appears it is currently dealing with some sort of issue, as reports from across the globe suggest that people are unable to access the site.

According to DownDetector, Reddit first started having issues at 3:00 AM EST, but have continued to get worse as the day has gone on, with thousands of complaints from users pouring in as they struggle to access the site.

Users who are trying to access the site are being met with an error code, which claims that the site’s “CDN is unable to reach their servers,” while others claim they are being met with a “503 Error Code” when they attempt to sign in.

Users are being greeted with an error code when they try to access the site.

The issues appear to be taking place worldwide, but most reports are coming from the east coast of the United States and the United Kingdom, with a handful of complaints coming from eastern Europe, Malaysia and Australia.

Reddit themselves have yet to address the issues with the site, with the company remaining silent on social media as to when they can expect the problems to end.

Users are having issues with the site worldwide.

The company does have a status website, however it appears that they have yet to update this, as it claims that all of Reddit’s systems are functional, although this is clearly not the case.

We’ll be sure to update this post with more information as it becomes available, or if Reddit push a fix to allow users back on the site.


TSM Hamlinz finally breaks Twitter silence after four-months away

Hamlinz has been missing in action for quite some time, but the beloved Fortnite streamer has finally broken his silence on Twitter on Oct. 25, and let the world know he is back and feeling good.

Darryle ‘Hamlinz’ Hamlin was once a pillar in the streaming world. He shot to fame while streaming Fortnite during its peak, and his popularity rose even more after he joined Team Solo Mid.

However, the beloved streamer has been on the down-low for several months now; in fact, he has been silent on social media for most of the year. 

Hamlinz tweeted every now and then between January and March, and even streamed a couple of times. But he was far less active than he used to be, and hadn’t posted at all since July.

Many speculated he might have been on another hiatus. The first one happened when he needed some time off to deal with a nasty cyst. The second one happened not long after when he needed some time to deal with personal issues.

Hamlinz was once one of the most popular streamers alongside Shroud and Ninja.

Hamlinz is back and feeling like his old self again

Thankfully, he bounced back on both those occasions, and it seems like he’s bounced back once again. The full extent of what happened this time around remains unclear. However, the most important thing is that Hamlinz has finally broken his silence on social media.

“Feeling like my old self again,” he wrote. It’s a little more than one hour old, but the tweet has already amassed 50,000 likes, 6,5000 retweets, and 6,000 comments.

The hype is real, and for a good reason. Hamlinz is one of the most entertaining, likable, and talented streamers in the world. Plus, it’s always nice to see people recover from whatever issues they’re facing and get back on their own two feet.

The comments are filled with people happy to see him back. “Finally something good in 2020,” wrote one fan. “Hamlinz is BACK BABY,” wrote another.

Sadly, Hamlinz has remained tight-lipped on whether he will stream again anytime soon. However, considering he is feeling like his old self again, it could mean that a stream might not be too far away.

Either way, there’s no doubt that it will be a momentous occasion. If the excitement in the comments is anything to go by, the floodgates will open and his fans, followers, and viewers will come pouring in.

Hamlinz has more than five million followers across Twitch, Twitter, and Youtube. It seems all the time off hasn’t dampened his popularity in the slightest.
