No, it is not your imagination: Reddit, the “front page of the internet,” is down.

I noticed the problem while researching (ie., looking at memes) for a separate story about The Last of Us, which you’ll hopefully be reading fairly shortly. In the midst of that, the site very suddenly stopped loading: I wasn’t getting any errors, just a blank page.

After a few frustrated reloads, I popped over to, which indicates that a “major outage” is currently underway. It’s specifically affecting the desktop and mobile versions of the site, with mobile apps showing a less severe “partial outage,” which might mean you can get some, but not all, pages to load. Downdetector likewise indicates a major problem of some sort, with close to 60,000 users reporting a problem.

We’ll keep an eye on things and update when Reddit is back, hopefully with some information about what went wrong.
