    Just within the past half an hour whenever I go onto a thread or the homepage of the site it loads, hangs for about 10 seconds, then redirects to an Error page on Facebook.

    I know at least two other people are having this problem through IRC and thought it should be brought to attention as urgent, just in case it's not affecting the people that need to know.

    I'm having this problem too on Chrome 24. Log out of Facebook, and it won't redirect you.

    You know, Facebook, you're not much of a social network if you're keeping me from talking with people.

    The problem was constant until I logged off Facebook manually - now it's smooth cruising again, so I suggest you guys do that.

    It affects people that use the Facebook connect thing, it's basically a quick way to register on a site by signing into your facebook account instead of putting in your e-mail, password, verification, etc.

    Seems to be fixed now, though.

    Apparently Facebook has fixed it (I wouldn't know :P)

    Either way, this is not a bug of GBAtemp

    it is neither modesty nor humility to acknowledge that we are far from having the popularity of sites such as kotaku, 1up and the likes. it is reality

    I've never used Facebook Connect to sign into anything but it started happening to me last night on GBAtemp, but only the homepage, the subforum listing, and in topics. Inside a subforum was just fine, for some reason.

    It hasn't affected me yet, but I am also not using facebook connect to sign into gbatemp. When the forum index is loading, for just a second I can see traffic coming from/to facebook on the bottom left ("waiting for www.facebook.com") so I guess it connects to facebook just by having it integrated into this forum, not just if you're signed into it. So maybe that could be why people who haven't linked also have the issue.
