As of this morning and for the past hour I am unable to access any IMDB urls, from www.imdb.com to www.imdb.com/title/tt1655442/, all lead to a error message:

D'oh!
We're sorry, something went wrong.
Please try again...wait...wait...yep, try reload/refresh now.
But if you are seeing this again, please report it here.
Please explain which page you were at and where on it that you clicked
Thank you!

I clicked "here" to report the issue, but the link was http://www.imdb.com/helpdesk/contact_... and so also unavailable. I am glad to be able to post this issue via https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topi... which I can access.

Is there any maintenance currently going on?

Thanks!

I am getting those pages fine. So, it's not totally down. Are you still seeing those messages? It might have been something like a power outage, or maybe some quick maintenance issue.

It is all very odd - it isn't the reference view problem reported a lot here and maintenance wouldn't tend to drive you to the 404 error messages (and would resolve itself quickly, so it might be something like a problem with your ISPs cache. Try hard refreshing the pages - CTRL + F5 in Windows.

I tried regularly for a few hours (refreshing and testing in new windows) and kept getting the message but it recently worked again all of a sudden.
Thanks for your messages. Hope it doesn't happen again and if it does I'll know just to be patient.

I'm actually getting quite a bit of this at the moment, especially on my user profile and my lists aren't loading. I assume it is some kind of tinkering going on behind the scenes.

When I try to reply on the forum I often get redirected to the page saying I need to authenticate my account. Then it goes away.

I've recently started to experience this exact same error message "d'oh". I believe it has something to do with imdb.com servers because I experience it on many different devices. There is also another page that comes up stating that the page is loading but in fact nothing is loading and it says something like, "if it doesn't upload, try this page (page is hyper-linked) but when clicked, it just refreshes the same page.

Getting those errors today.  Sometimes can read a board post, but trying to click back to the main board results in... D'oh!

Have been getting d'oh's for past 2 days and on different devices. Imdb has been working great for years and now suddenly it's almost unusable.

Same here. IMDb has always worked fine but now it's really tripping out!

I also keep on getting to d'oh pages, although I did manage to send a message on one of the board after 6 or 7 refreshes and resend. I can't get to the helpdesk submission form either, hence coming here.

I have been receiving this message as well. It was fine yesterday , but today when I tried to view a post in the boards of any movie , I got the message. Also , I can't find/see my posting history anywhere. Maybe it is a glitch and they are fixing it.

Guys, Star War came out today. No doubt, people are flooding the message boards, causing it to crash.

That seems like a reasonable explanation. I've noticed that when major movies come out , sometimes the boards crash for a while or off and on for a couple of days until it calms down.

Been on IMDB since the 90s. This is my first time getting D'Oh! errors on the forums. I've also been plagued by a large red print "warning" to follow imdb netiquette, which I always have.
Weird how IMDB was a fantastic site until 2-3 years ago...  it's becoming a an issue site... I wish it had never sold to Amazon :(
