I've been waiting for Fanfiction to come back for almost two hours and it still isn't.

I think it's also due to the CloudFlare service time out and if I'm right, there's a maintenance happening with it.

Either way, please fix Fanfiction!

I really love fanfiction so much, please fix it very soon. It's been a month now since the glitches started and it's still getting even worse.

First was the update status of ongoing stories which is still not fixed, then the recently favourited stories in people's profiles randomly disappear before reappearing, then the email notifications are not working and the email opt-in hasn't automatically changed to no, now the forums are getting the error 1 message and not working at all either.

Please fix it very soon.

I really wish these really bad glitches will get fixed very soon. It's been going on for a month now. It keeps reversing the update schedule on and off, now showing the latest updates from November last year, the recent favourited stories count keep vanishing from other people's profiles, randomly, and I love the website so much.

Please fix it very soon.
