Imgur timing out

Kyle 3 years ago • updated 3 years ago 0
For the past few days, while attempting to access imgur, the site will simply timeout and I can't access the page/browse any imgur content on Reddit. This occurs on all my browsers (Chrome, Safari, and Firefox) on my mac (Macbook Pro, OSX Yosemite 10.10.5) are up to date. I'm on my campus wi-fi, which is very reliable (~27 up ~12 down at its worst) and I have no problems with any other site other than imgur. I tried clearing the cache and any cookies related to imgur.com, but neither has worked.I performed a traceroute of imgur and the packet would suddenly stop at around the 5th "hop." Every time I try to ping imgur.com I get a "request timeout for icmp_seq XX". Location on campus does not seem to have any impact.

Randomly, just as quickly as the problem appeared, the issues goes away. I can access imgur.com and browse reddit just as easily as I should be able to. Then, I can't access imgur anymore and the problem persists like a vicious cycle.

Is there anything I can do? I'd really appreciate any help. Nothing that has been archived has seemed to help.
