Is it planned downage, or what kind of emergency maintenance? Service unavailability appears to be recovering unstably.

[edit] About, not

For a couple of days it has become extreme again. Every second request or so gets a 503. Anyone else experiencing this issue?

Yes, same for me over the last 2 days (I assume you are talking about as in the original question).

And here we go again. :-(

For me too, for the last day or too help has been unusable much of the time.

It's been happening sometime this week.

I raised a new ticket on Github. Let's see if someone can help.

It happens from time to time. I had brought that up on Github a while ago but the admins claimed be unable to help at that time.

Strangely, I have never experienced this until yesterday.

There is no one "website" when you connect to you will be served by one of the five frontend servers which in turn connect to 5 backend servers (some of these are located in the UK some in NL), which in turn connect to a master and a couple of replica databases.

What you may have seen could just be a hiccup with one of the frontend servers that nobody else has experienced, without details definitely nobody will be able to help you.

I'm guessing that it might have been about the help site itself :)
