For those that are wondering why Reddit is down on Oct 2, it is for scheduled server maintenance. We also have a heads-up for when Reddit will be back up today for those that didn’t get the sudden message.
The creators of Reddit let everyone know that Reddit will be down today for a brief period of time lasting around 15-20 minutes. Hopefully the estimation is correct and Reddit will be available very soon.
Unsurprisingly, some unassuming users didn’t get the memo and are now going crazy and asking why Reddit is offline today.
You can get a confirmation from the Reddit team on the maintenance here – which we managed to pluck out using Google’s trusty cache system.
Is Reddit back up for you yet in your area? Hold on tight as the service should be ok soon.
