As a result of these issues, we have received a higher than normal number of support tickets and have been unable to answer all of them in a reasonable timeframe. As we continue to work on resolving these issues, we’d like to apologize for both long support wait times and for our website’s performance. 

To stay updated on which areas of the site are currently experiencing issues, please review this support article or visit our status page. We update these pages daily with any issues and remove features that have been fixed.
