Has anybody else had this problem, and do you know what might be causing it?

I've been having essentially the same issue, including the double posts.

Hi @Robin Sedai,

we're unfortunately experiencing issues with our forum hosting right now and are working with our provider to fix the issue. I thought for some time that it was solve, but the problem persisted unfortunately. I have put measures in place that at least make the forums somewhat usable again for the time being. You might still see timeouts for some actions like posting, though.

I'll post an update here when the issues are fully resolved.

Paleo went to bed and left me with a few instructions. I believe the situation has been resolved perhaps now.

For some additional context, our particular node we were on was hit with some heavy IO failure of some kind, and moving us to a different node seems to have resolved things.

That's odd, I assumed Seattle was where their offices/servers/weird techy things were. Is Ahmedabad anywhere near where you live? (you don't have to answer that)

It's LA for me. That's odd, considering I'm closer to Seattle, so that can't be the reasoning.

Cloudflare is a Content Delivery Network which helps on a variety of things. Probably is easiest for me to just link this: https://www.cloudflare.com/learning/what-is-cloudflare/

It would indeed have nodes all over the place so would display a city near you. That's how it works.

But Seattle is (almost) as far as you can get from where I am. Surely it's got something nearer?

I mean, I don't work at Cloudflare nor know where you live, so I don't know how much I can illuminate things :)

Well, your in China right? Well maybe cloudflare doesn't have many Asian/Eastern European spots, and Seattle is just going East instead of West. Also, it can't be purely location-based because I'm closer to Seattle mine is LA.

Sorry :P I was just thinking out loud, and didn't really expect an answer.
