The company or another trusted organization must make a statement confirming the outage's cause to be sure. It does not have to me a malicious outage, it could be due to an error.

@strutheo Seems there was also downtime on Super Tuesday for many platforms, most notably YouTube and Discord. Not sure if it qualifies as "significant" (seems like all were down for under 2 hours), but there's a plethora of articles about it: https://ackodrive.com/news/instagram-facebook-threads-youtube-discord-down-for-users-worldwide/

@SaviorofPlant i was literally on all of those sites the whole time, first im hearing of it lol

ill look into this

@strutheo Do outages that occurred before the creation of this market count? Seems OpenAI suffered a DDOS attack in February:

Official tracker shows significant downtime Feb 13 - 14: https://status.openai.com/

we wont count it sry

@strutheo or ill NA and say 'a 2nd one'

cc @Amaryllis i made another entry for a FULL wikipedia outage

I assume this means amazon.com as opposed to AWS services etc.?

Is there some benchmark for how "significant" is decided?

bought Ṁ10 Answer #e3414f0a0d52 YES

@Retr0id only to avoid people coming here with a tiny outage on their end, or a blip on the 'is this website out' trackers, which i dont count as serious outages

if there is a news report or widespread consensus or company acknowledgement i'll count it

bought Ṁ10 Spotify YES

@strutheo for company acknowledgement I guess it needs to be like, a dedicated blog post or press release, as opposed to e.g. a status dashboard update?

bought Ṁ50 Answer #e3414f0a0d52 YES

@Retr0id a blog or tweet is best i guess. depends on the dashboard and data it is showing.

I think LinkedIn is down?

https://www.wikimediastatus.net/ is, as of the time of this comment, listing "Partial Outage" for reading and "Major Outage" for editing on Wikipedia.

@Tulip ok i honestly didnt think about this sort of distinction for outage, so i might resolve 50-50 or NA it. i was assuming it would be a loss of access to the wikipedia pages themselves not editors. good catch though thanks for pointing out!

sold Ṁ35 Chess.com NO

What level of downtime counts? For example, DownDetectors lists some incidents in Feb for chess.com: https://downforeveryoneorjustme.com/chesscom

@DanMan314 i dont trust these websites sometimes they report small outages for 1-2 people that dont reflect the whole world

i'm going off of company statements/news mainly

@strutheo Thanks for the clarification! Makes sense.
