Users are reporting issues with the popular social, entertainment, and news hub Reddit on September 18, and we’ve got the latest on this current outage.


Update – 3:40 PM PT / 7:40 PM ET

According to user reports, the issue causing Reddit to crash has been resolved on the most part, and the website has become accessible again.

However, it appears that there are still some delays with pages loading, so make sure to refresh the page if you are still experiencing delays.


When it comes to the internet, there isn’t a bigger or more prominent central hub than Reddit, which houses tens of thousands of communities for topics that range such as sports, entertainment, gaming, memes, and many more.

However, an unknown issue has struck the website, causing the website to become inaccessible to many, with half-loaded pages and/or error messages popping up when visited.

Reddit have acknowledged the outage, and reported that they were investigating the issue at 1:27 PM PT / 4:27 PM ET.

According to the Reddit Status Page, the incident is affecting the desktop website, mobile website, the app, votre processing, comment processing, spam processing, and modmail. 

RedditReddit users are met with this message when visiting the website.

DownDetector, the website that monitors and reports outage issues concerning all major entities, reported that the issues with Reddit began at around 12:53 PM PT / 3:53 PM ET, with 70% of the issues being reported for the actual website and 26% for the app.

Their live outage map shows that these issues are mostly concentrated in the United States, primarily around Southern California and the New England/New York area.

There also seems to be a cluster of reports coming from the London area in England, as well as Berlin, Germany, but there don’t appear to be any other major outages throughout Europe.

According to DownDetector, there have already been tens of thousands of reports filed concerning this incident, which confirms that the issue is quite serious and affecting a lot of people. 

DownDetector’s outage map shows Southern California and northeastern US as the main areas affected by issues.

This is the first major Reddit outage since the website went down on July 11, and the two incidents do appear to be similar in nature, with the only major difference being that the majority of reports were coming from the UK and the northeastern United States.

Dr Disrespect’s Halloween ‘Doctober’ contest has returned and with it, fans of the Two-Time have unveiled their best cosplays of the legendary streamer.

Given Doc’s larger-than-life personality and outfit with the red vest, black mullet, mustache, combat boots and sunglasses, he’s cosplay material.

The contest is simple, post a picture of yourself dressed as Doc and tweet it with the hashtag #Doctober for a chance to win prizes from the Two-Time himself.

While Dr Disrespect hasn’t picked his winners yet, here are five Doctober cosplays we think are deserving of tasting victory.

There’s a lot in this photo that makes it stand out from the crowd. Primarily, it’s the theme of the 1993/1994 BlockBuster video game championship that Doc has built his “Two Time” moniker around.

For one, you have the podium with the Doc cosplayer standing above two children as a man dressed as a BlockBuster employee hands out a trophy.

The BlockBuster video cases in the back keep the immersion intact while a Sega Genesis shows what appears to be NBA Jam. This was just well-done in general.

This one amplifies the Halloween aspect of the cosplay with some horror elements going on.

The cosplay itself is well done with the sweat pants featuring the logo, vest, mullet and sunglasses all intact. Meanwhile, the background features a spooky full moon and peashooters dropping in.

On the ground, the zombified hand reaching out of the grave secures its place on our list primarily for the Halloween theme.

Working together with your spouse on a cosplay deserves some credit, and that’s exactly what this couple did to recreate Mrs Assassin’s Instagram photo.

This unique cosplay has the wife standing on her husband with a knife by his throat – perfectly emulating the original.

Her husband’s pose as Doc is also extremely well-done, so this one is definitely a serious contender.

Cruzader1993

This is most likely the most standard Doc cosplay on this list, but it looks so authentic we couldn’t not mention it.

Nothing fancy, just an extremely well-crafted Doc outfit equipped with an authentic mustache. It just works, and it does so perfectly.

Kids dressed up as Doc is nothing new, but there’s something about a five-year-old with a mullet drinking G-Fuel that is downright hilarious.

As far as the outfit goes, once again, this kid’s parents nail it – all the boxes are checked. It also really helps that the boy’s attitude while posing for the video seems to match Doc’s energy, which is a major plus.

There is only one day left until Halloween, so it’s not to late for you to enter the contest itself and show the YouTube streamer what you’ve got.
