    What's the point of Cloudflare? Ever since you use that service the page is way too often unreachable. It wasn't that bad before you used that in my opinion useless service.

    The error message from CloudFlare, if you read it, simply states that CloudFlare does not have a cached version of Stratics Forums. This is because forum content is too dynamic to cache. If you recall, we were having a lot of downtimes prior to using CloudFlare. In the past, this was occasionally due to DDoS, but more recently due to high memory usage or traffic volume. (Note: CloudFlare hinders the efficacy of DDoS incidents, among other things). In short, it's a server problem, not a CloudFlare problem.

    I'll notify our SYSOP again about the issue, but they have not yet been able to pinpoint the problem.
