Same here, experiencing it for days now (i.e. https://academy.unrealengine.com). I guess all we can do is wait until they find someone who has the time to take care of it.

Thanks for reporting this. We hadn’t seen the issue until today. I’m sorry that it has been affecting you for days. You might try clearing cookies for docs.unrealengine.com to see if that helps. We have someone looking for the root cause and will let you know as soon as we resolve it.

I actually did just that, removing cookies and re-login temporary helped (although the issue still comes back randomly, some page refreshes usually solve it). Thanks!
