It seems r/wallstreetbets has created so much traffic for Reddit with the GameStop stock madness, that Reddit servers overload.

With all of the madness happening over on the r/wallstreetbets subreddit on Reddit, the site is having issues. I thought it was just me when I was trying to get some more information for some stories, but then the issues got worse.

I was logged in, but the site was saying I wasn't logged in. Clearly I wasn't as I wasn't able to comment, and then I checked Twitter and voila -- Reddit is having issues. The official Reddit Status website states that there are "elevated error rates" and that they are "currently investigating the issue".

This is 8 minutes ago, at the time of writing -- I'll update when there's more news.
