Sites failing to update when refreshed, going to "Service unavailable" screen.

Physics, biology, Sci-Fi and Fantasy, Medical, Psychology and Skeptics.

Worldbuilding being an exception went to an "Oops, something bad happened" screen (I was refreshing a particular question).

Main meta has so-far been fine.

I noticed this a few (~15) minutes ago, repeated refreshing a few minutes apart leads to sometimes the error message, sometimes the correct page.

Stack-Status report:

August 03, 2022 | 02:45PM (01:45 PM UTC) Stack Exchange Network Sites has transitioned to Unavailable

Then:

August 03, 2022 | 03:13PM (02:13 PM UTC) Stack Exchange Network Sites has transitioned to Degraded

Something seems up on SE's end, not just local to here, southern UK.

    Was just about to ask. My VPN endpoint (NE USA) is seeing the same, so it's not local to you. Also, it's a bit random; I hit the top 4 links in HNQ and 2 of them loaded, 2 of them got unavailable.

    I have just experienced similar behavior in western Canada, so I assume it's on SE's end. Also, there's a current (as of about 15 minutes ago) Stack Exchange status incident report about this. Aug 3 at 13:59

    @JohnOmielan Thanks, I'll add that.

    There's something very big ongoing for a long time now. SE doing their best, with the best possible people, to fight it. Let's wish them luck. Aug 3 at 14:03

    This is on SE's end, definitely. Has been happening on and off for a couple of days now.

    I don't think we need to edit it with current status; The question was posted, goal is getting official response explaining what's going on. Aug 3 at 14:47

    Fair enough, that's as far as it needs to go. Leaving as-is for now unless something stupendous happens. @ShadowTheKidWizard

    Well if something stupendous would happen, we won't be able to edit anyway. ;) Aug 3 at 14:51

    Note: For anybody interested, I believe the Recent site instability, major outages – July/August 2022 post, since it's about an instability that started on July 29, 2022, has information that is applicable to this post. 3 hours ago
