I hope this isn't happening to anyone else, and that it's just a glitch.

I tried to go to the homepage a few times just now and it redirected me to nginx or something. I thought I'd bring it to y'alls attention

I saw that too. Apparently it was just added to the forums or something? Maybe for new features?

An answer on that would be great.

I'm getting this as well. Won't let me view SSMB on my laptop.

Although, I can still view SSMB on my phone.

Bug in the config, should be fixed now.

For info, nginx is the web server software (the part that listens for page/image/etc requests and sends back the response) we use. Most of our main sites are served via HTTPS, which encrypts the traffic between you and the server so it can't be eavesdropped on. This requires that users that attempt to use HTTP instead (the default, if you don't specify the scheme by using "https://" in the URL) are redirected to the HTTPS version of the URL, and it's this part that didn't work correctly, sending you to a generic welcome page for nginx instead.
