Update: Slack is back, Jack

Update: Slack say it’s finally resolved the issue, after hours of intermittent service.

We’re happy to report that workspaces should be able to connect again, as we’ve isolated the problem. Some folks may need to refresh (Ctrl + R or Cmd + R)

If you are reading this, you are free. Slack is down, and it has been for a while. Feel free to invoke the 15-minute rule and take the rest of the day off. Work is canceled.

Or, you know, just keep checking back at the wonderfully alliterative Slack System Status page. The last update, from about 15 minutes ago notes:

Our team is still looking into the cause of the connectivity issues, and we’ll continue to update you on our progress.

The company’s Twitter account is also responding to freaked out users at an inhuman pace.

We’ll update when ASAP arrives.
