However, I exasperatedly concur on the 504 errors. They really slow me down on the FG and I just have keep trying and weathering through them.
I reset all my cookies and the endless 504 errors seem to have vanished, but it took me half a dozen tries to actually post what I wrote yesterday because of the Spamhaus IP blacklist - which appears to be something that happens automatically to CenturyLink customers. So this forum is pretty unusable at the moment. Is Dan still alive? Can he fix this?

the 504 errors are a minor annoyance to me. Usually, if I come back a short while later it works.

One day recently I looked several times during a day and always got 504 errors. If I was in a hurry to get info about a hike this would be more annoying. But I can't really complain about a site that doesn't have a pay wall and obnoxious ads.

I have also had a lot of 504 errors. Yesterday I tried to reply to a post and got the spamhaus blacklist. I'm not on centurylink, i have hood river electric co-op. We'll see if this works today. Oh, I also got a message yesterday, while trying to post, that said I didn't have enough characters. I had two full lines of text. Weird stuff happening indeed.

Is there any rhyme or reason to the 504 errors, like time of day, etc? Do they come up instantly, after 5 seconds, after 30 seconds, etc? I'm assuming they slow you down because they often happen when submitting data, and maybe you can't re-post it? Or do they slow you down navigating?

We don't have a lot of analytics/monitoring set up, so I'm a bit blind to what might be happening, other than combing through logs.

My guess is the 504s are coming from Cloudflare. I'll take a look if there's something I can do from that end too.

I bumped up a setting that I *think* will help with this. Let me know if it:
-Goes away
-Gets better, but doesn't go away
-Doesn't change at all or gets worse

There's some risk of performance degradation, but hopefully not.

I haven't noticed it being at certain times of the day but I'm not usually on till the evening. The 504 appears as soon as OH has loaded. I've found that hitting reload page usually makes it go away so it hasn't really interfered with OH for me.

For me, the 504 errors have occurred quite regularly just after midnight. Usually there's a few-second pause before the error message appears. Reloading doesn't help.

For the record, the error screen says that CloudFlare is fine but OregonHikers.org has issues.

Yeah, sorry I didn't mean Cloudflare was causing the errors, just that it's the page that Cloudflare displays when it's having trouble connecting to a site.

Ok, so if reloading doesn't help, that sounds like the downtime is lasting, and it's not just intermittent. Does it last several minutes?
