I was able to email them with the error message and the fact that others in the community are having the same issue.

What I find particularly frustrating is not just that the site is down, that happens on occasion, but that the first resource I found was the "Status Report" page claiming "All Systems Operational/ No Incidents Reported," but this page has no "Report Incident" button! So I came here and see how many others are also posting about this.

Is there not an "incident report" page or feature around here? I cannot be the only one to find that asinine (Unless I completely missed something that is actually obvious?)

Seems similar, but I'm getting from Windows Explorer from a folder I'm needing to share...

"Dropbox couldn't complete your request.
We encountered an unexpected error."

Not tied to a browser, though I see an issue there as well...

Actually got a chuckle out of the message having written a lot of code ... are errors ever expected?  Usually we fix / handle them if they are.
