When I try to go to http://www.geocaching.com I get a yellow line at the top of the page with the text

I just checked, and I'm not seeing that banner. I wonder if a test server was accidentally made available to the public.

For Groundspeak's reference, if you're curious, I'm on WEB01, Build: Tucson.Main.release-20140603.Release_113 and don't see the test banner. Another machine is on WEB17 with the same build and no problem.

Well, it's fine now.

 

A little patience can do wonders.

I'll bet that for everybody seeing that banner were to "refresh" their browser it would go away.

 

Funny how that works..... Turn it on and leave it on, of course it still shows the banner.

Clearly that wasn't the case when they first saw the banner, because at least the OP also encountered problems trying to log in (redirected to a staging site), so a simple refresh likely wouldn't have made it go away. It's likely that a staging server was temporarily being used in production, and that it has now been taken down. There haven't been any further reports since it was posted that the banner seemed to have gone away, so I'm confused by your comment.
