Reddit is Having an Emergency

In the last 5 years, I have seen Reddit have a few issues here and there, but today they have gone down for a while now already to ‘emergency maintenance’.

They also have update their ‘reddit is down’ graphic, which used to look like this:

No word yet on what the emergency is, but personally I am hoping it is some new feature or design change.

I will update if it turns out to me more than a new ‘server down’ graphic.

EDIT 3: Reddit announced through an update what the problem was. Read more here.

EDIT 2: The site is back up, but users are notified they cannot log in to the site yet:
