    It seems to me that the official Apple discussions site has been down for some time(Months perhaps or am I just not paying attention or checking at the wrong times?) Anyone noticing this or know why?

    Probably made the mistake of hosting it on their own equipment. They're waiting for AppleCare to admit that the hardware is defective and trying to get them to agree to fix it. :p

    According to my Safari history, I visited a thread on July the 18th of this year. Maybe they upgrade it with mobile compatibility, seeing as many Apple.com and Support pages are not made for mobile devices, which is completely understandable for the company focussing on mobile.

    Still not working here: I deleted cookies in cache but still cannot access. Really bad timing too because my Mac Pro is down and I could really use some help from there.

    Doesn't work for me either. The page I get says they are updating and will be back soon.

    Very strange. I just visited https://discussions.apple.com/welcome and drilled down to a particular section and topic, like https://discussions.apple.com/thread/7621545, and it all loaded fine for me.

    If you're following the link in the OP, that's exactly where it will take you as that's the page that gets displayed when the forums are down ;)

    Try this one instead: https://discussions.apple.com/welcome

    Are you using a bookmark to access the page? Maybe you have it bookmarked wrong.

    Try the link:
