    I get this error a lot on the forums, been going on for at least two weeks (which is when I returned to TT after a long break, so possibly even longer).
    I'd say about 20 % of my clicks end up in this.
    Always works fine after reloading.
    Anyone else? @Matt

    That is common and is encountered by everyone I think. There's already been many protests or suggestions to change the hoster and fix it but it seems CloudFlare is here to stay... Sorry.

    I'm in the UK (if that makes any difference) and only seem to get it about 1 in 20, most the times. But it seems noticeably worst at weekends and busy times, I think.

    And yeah, been an issue for at least a year.

    and I also have been suffering from the CLODFIRE errors (usually the 502 in the last few months), and would dearly LOVE to see the clodfire damped out

    the clodfire locations that I often get errors from include hong kong, sydney, perth
    btw I am in australia east coast, and this morning I have had (so far) 8 clodfires, it must be the start of the clodfire season

    I'm blaming mine on the cloudflare(triggered cause fire) being in "San Jose, California" or someplace like that. I LIVE A FEW HOURS FLIGHT FROM THERE. PUT ONE IN EACH STATE AND PROVINCE OR RELATIVELY SMALL COUNTRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I don't think this is about lag, for browsing web/forums usually you won't notice any significant difference even if the actual web server is hosted on the other side of the planet... It may take a few seconds longer, but not cause actual timeouts.
    According to their website one datacenter is even located in my city. Must be some other issue, dunno what but hopefully fixable :).

    Hey everyone!

    Just a quick update to this issue. We've got the best minds looking into it and should have an update for you shortly.

    If it makes you feel any better, even we get the same error messages at about the same rate, so when I'm on here 90% of the time that's a lot of error pages to receive. We feel your pain!

    Matt, I understand your concern, but please. Use. Periods. And. Commas. It annoys me to no end and makes it harder to read.

    You may, or may not, have noticed the forum went offline for a few hours recently. This was while we were carrying out essential, long overdue server maintenance.

    The good news is that this should have resolved this issue. There is an added bonus that the forum is now running faster too (WAHOO!).

    Please update this thread if you come across any Cloudflare 502 errors so we can keep track.

    Thanks!
    Matt

    Not a 502 error, but I've noticed you can't put pictures correctly into threads anymore. The pictures only appear as normal files and cannot be embedded into the post as full-size pictures or thumbnails unless you embed them from a separate image hosting website.

    Ooh, excellent news indeed! Seems good, yeah, apart from this:
    Any insights on what's happening with that? It's a bug, right?

    On the topic of new forum bugs, a few of us from the Discord server have been strugging to change our profile pictures, desite using square > 200x200p .jpgs.
