UPDATE 3/23/21:

This issue appears to be resolved. However, if anyone is still experiencing problems with the Rec button or navigation, please send me a DU Mail message.

UPDATE 3/11/21:

We're confident that this issue is now resolved for all users. However, if you do experience any further weirdness, please feel free to send me a DU Mail message. Thanks again for your patience.


We think we know what's causing the problem, but unfortunately we're not going to be able to resolve it until some time tomorrow so these functions will be unavailable to some users until then. There is no cause for alarm, this is not a hack or anything nefarious.

If you cannot open groups in the left-hand navigation menu, you can still reach them by navigating via the "Forums & Groups" tab at the top of any page.

Unfortunately there isn't a workaround for reccing posts. It's possible that refreshing the page may resolve it in some cases -- using Shift-Reload on your browser may do the trick, but it may not. You could also try using a different device if you have one available.

In some cases you may also find that Alert and Bookmark functions are unavailable. Again, reloading the page may help, or using a different device.

At this time we hope to have the issues resolved before the end of the day Thursday, so we appreciate your patience until then. My apologies for the inconvenience.
