Damn autocorrect. Supposed to be Voat.xyz! All these sites were giving me 500 internal server errors last night. That’s pretty odd. Almost like they’re all on the same server or all being upgraded at the same time.

I read it was a cloudflare issue but I don't know.

It's you, Bitswitch!

Joking aside, doing a quick traceroute shows that Communities and 4chan do indeed run behind Cloudflare proxies. Voat seems to be running off of some Amazon instances.

It wasn’t me. Not this time anyway. ;-) I thought a 500 internal server error was on the server itself and not related to browser, network, or proxies. Just weird they’d all be like that at the same time.

The front end servers may rely on other cloudflare services.

What confused me was switching between cellular and cable caused the issue to resolve/reappear. I thought it was my home network.

Even downdetector.com was spotty, so maybe it was cloud fare or a CDN like Akamai.

What's Voat.cuz? Nothing happens if I enter into my address bar.

it’s a typo. should be voat.xyz. used to be voat.co back in the day. it’s nothing like it used to be but I assume it’s on the naughtly list like 4chan so that’s why I checked.
