Login, Register, Upgrade pages are blank
The Login page, Register page, and Upgrade page are blank, except for the Login page, which just has an ad for Adobe Express on the Login page and no background; when clicking on the ad, it opens a new tab and immediately closes it; same thing with right-clicking the ad to open it in a new window; it only works when opened in Google Chrome Incognito Mode.

There are no fields for me to fill out, so I can't sign in! I can't even sign in with Google because that button is gone too!

When I go to the "watch free ad" page, the ad is blank so I can't click through it and get to "I'm done" I have tried it on Chrome and Edge

Broken Ads means citation doesn't generate
Cite itself is mostly working, but won't finalize the citations. It wants you to watch an "interactive ad", but the ad won't load, so you can't get through it and get your citation. I've tried reloading the page but it keeps doing it, it's been this way since last night >:(

Site itself works but not citation generation/finalization. :(
Seems to be an endless loading screen going on when trying to finalize website details for an APA citation. I've been using it for years in education, but it always worked; however, it's also not working in other browsers. Sure the site generally works but the generation of citations are not working right now it seems because it's stuck in an endless loading loop.

It seems as if advertisements have taken over for citation machine. Originally you were asked to watch an ad, then be allowed to use the program, not the program, which many universities rely on is locked up for an hour at a time while it runs a series of ads finally allowing one to access it;'s material. This has happened numerous times in the past weeks, previously I had never seen this problem with the program.

The login page is not displaying and entry fields, just the background image, so you can't login right now. (Very frustrating, as I have a paper to finish!)
