Just a heads up, today the site has been slow and has errored out a couple of times.

Error 524 - A Timeout has Occurred ( I have also gotten the 522 Error in the past )

What happened?

The connection to the origin web server was made, but the origin web server timed out before responding. The likely cause is an overloaded background task, database or application, stressing the resources on your web server. To resolve, please work with your hosting provider or web development team to free up resources for your database or overloaded application. Additional troubleshooting information here.
I was getting 524, 522, and 521 throughout the day yesterday, too.
Yeah, I've been getting them a little more frequently. Usually more in the mornings, but that's also when I'm on the site more and would notice. I thought maybe it was just Eric working on stuff, but seems a little often for that.

Yep I got the same I had to sign in every time I actually got on and look at badges or forum.
Sorry about that folks. Our server has been crapping out at odd times of the day. If you get a timeout or CloudFlare-based error message, that typically means the server has exhausted it's resources. There are several database queries that are very resource-intensive.

I'm looking into upgrading the server to address this.
