Intermittent site outage

A few times in recent days I've tried to pull up this site and it just instantly fails to load, on multiple attempts. Then I'll try it an hour later and it's fine. At first I thought maybe it was just downtime for maintenance, but it keeps happening, so it's making me wonder if there's some underlying server issue, or if possibly it's connected to the naughty-list loading issue that we had earlier this year. It doesn't seem like the same thing, because there's no delay in this case; it simply fails. The problem usually lasts for maybe 20 minutes to an hour, and might happen once or twice a day as I check the site frequently. So right now it's only an annoyance, but I'm wondering what might be the cause of it.

I've been having the same problem too. Usually comes up as a "HTTP 500 error" or a 502. Not sure if that helps, but it is becoming an annoyance.

I've been seeing it off and on was well, but if I wait a bit and try to reload, it works. Very odd, and given how long I was effectively locked out by the server issue this year, it worries me. I'm just starting to delve back into role play again. :)

Well there isn't a user discouraged list anymore and there are less than 10 errors / day in the server logs...so I'm guessing cloudflare.

Well as annoying as that can be I prefer this over the massively slow loading times. At least when the site works it's still going fast.
