Just now, was already logged in and reading, tried clicking onto a new thread and it brought me to another page that said “the site is being updated, please try again later”.

This happened with 2 diff threads. Others opened up normally for me.

Backed out, happened 3 more times.

Tried again and it let me into the threads that were re-directing me.

I’m not a tech guy, just passing it along to be safe. Thanks.

you were all over that mr. cams, like white on rice!
Ya, I was thinking that an update would have caused every thread or even the site to be blocked entirely until it was done, like the last big update.
Never hurts to ask the boss if you’re not sure.

Totally agreed - for reference, there are some mini updates that get applied occasionally which require 1-2 minutes of downtime - you just happened to get caught in the middle of one of them.
