We're very sorry that the site is still experiencing problems. We are working urgently to get it back up and running as soon as possible.

As many of you have guessed, the number of people using the site has caused problems this morning. It's a mix of people reloading the front page to watch the signature count go up and people trying to sign petitions.

We've taken the trending petitions feature off the front page to prioritise people trying to sign petitions.

Our job is to help people to start and sign petitions about the things they care about, so we’re working really hard to make sure that can happen.

A lot of people have been asking about numbers. Between 80,000 and 100,000 people have been simultaneously viewing the petition to revoke article 50. Nearly 2,000 signatures are being completed every minute.

The rate of signing is the highest the site has ever had to deal with and we have had to make some changes to ensure the site remains stable and open for signatures and new petitions. Thanks for bearing with us.

Your devs, support, and hosting folk deserve some serious time off after this one. With complimentary beverages and snacks of choice. Sympathies and moral support noises from fellow geeks!

High five for getting it back up. Low five for not having it scale properly (and automatically) in the first place.
