Popular chat service Discord experienced widespread server outages today. The issues started at around 5PM ET, and lasted nearly an hour. Patreon, Deliveroo, GitLab, Zendesk, Medium, and many other sites were also down, and Cloudflare acknowledged issues with its network affected various apps and sites.

“The issue has been identified and a fix is being implemented,” says Cloudflare. Discord also had “all engineers on deck investigating the issue,” and its own problems were related to the Cloudflare outage.

Update, July 17th 5:55PM ET: Article updated with confirmation from Cloudflare that a fix is rolling out.
