We’ve identified some important enhancements that we need to make, which will help mitigate some of the login/logout issues we’ve seen primarily on the SB Nation network.

During the release of the next round of changes, we will likely see some momentary site performance issues across the network.

We are expecting the first window of performance degradation to occur in approximately 10 minutes (around 4:30 PM Eastern), and the second window to occur tomorrow, Saturday morning around 7 AM Eastern time.

If you see performance issues around these times, please know it’s expected and will not last more than a few minutes.

Hello everyone, we've released a few additional fixes that should help ease the "Couldn't authenticate you" messaging that many users have reported seeing when trying to leave comments on the SB Nation network. We're working up a few more improvements that we will be releasing over the next day or so, but we wanted to make sure everyone was aware of our progress on this front. Thanks for your patience!
