Discourse.soylent.me is down


#1

For the last few days I’ve been unable to access http://discourse.soylent.me. I recommend creating a 301 redirect to the canonical version of the site (i.e. https://discourse.soylent.me).


#2

I had the exact same problem, which was fixed by pointing my bookmark to discourse.soylent.com as instructed by user ravenvii.


#3

I had the same problem, took me a couple days before I thought of trying discourse.soylent.com. Is this on purpose, as part of the switch from .me to .com for soylent in general? Would have been nice to have some warning…


#4

Its odd as its pingable and routes

I believe it was part the the SSL upgrade: Why does this Discourse not use SSL?


#6

hmmmmm, I’m wondering if you saved discourse as a favorite before it switched to .com


#7

I did have it saved from before and haven’t been on for a few days because of that. It didn’t take much troubleshooting to figure it out, but it also wasn’t worth my while for the first couple days, a redirect would have been nice.


#8

I’ve had the same problem recently. My Google home page shows about 8 of the most recently visited sites and I would always just click on that to get to the Discourse site. If you go to Soylent.com and click the Discourse icon at the very bottom of the page it takes you to the .com version.

Maybe up till now the .me was being forwarded to the .com?


#9

I’m having an engineer look into the problem.


#10

I don’t think it was being forwarded. My password didn’t work on the .com domain, so I had to reset it in order to login here.


#11

I’ve been using the .me URL and was really confused why the site was down for so long. I eventually tried the link from the soylent.com homepage and realized what was going on. It’s good to be back!

The [quote=“Raylingh, post:1, topic:24361”]
the canonical version of the site (i.e. https://discourse.soylent.me).

The canonical version of the site is https://discourse.soylent.com/

It looks like both http://discourse.soylent.me and https://discourse.soylent.me are redirecting to https://discourse.soylent.com now.

That’s actually a typo. Reading the “i.e.” part as .com, my post makes much more sense.
