There was just an outage of at least a portion, if not the whole, SE network. I went to the Global Status Page to see what was going on and it was identified as an Outage. Now, there's no reference to this incident or outage anywhere on the page. I know it happened and I see no reason why the outage wouldn't be there and record the start time, end time, and any additional information that should be shared about it.

  • Very odd, I do see the incident, however with wrong icon. (Icon means "no issues" however that was an incident, which has a different icon for it.) Jul 29 at 13:57
  • @ShadowTheKidWizard That was yesterday's incident

    I believe the outage page is manually updated. I see the incident now.

    Anyway exact same issue as this one, something that was there suddenly gone for some people, looks like nothing was fixed or done since then to address the issue. Jul 29 at 13:59
  • @aynber I had no idea today was another outage, saw about yesterday and that there was tweet about it. So maybe they prefer to wait until they know what's going on instead of starting new incident every day, which does make sense. Jul 29 at 14:00

    @ShadowTheKidWizard It doesn't make much sense to me. Once you call an incident or issue resolved, you wouldn't reopen it. As soon as you have other issues or incidents or outages, you'd make a new one. If you learn they are related, you can reference the older one in the newer one. Jul 29 at 14:07

    I've seen SO going offline several times in the last couple of weeks, it does seem a little unstable right now.

  • And now stackstatus.net itself is broken: There was an error loading the page data. Try refreshing the page or contacting support@firehydrant.io for support. ... and back again. But slow.

    Looks like an issue was eventually created. Related thread over on MSO: What's the point in Stack Status if it (almost) always reports "All systems operational"?
