I attempted to follow through a link today that a CM posted to a post on the SO blog, https://blog.stackoverflow.com/2012/03/respect-the-community-your-own-and-others/, and it's showing me an error page. I've tried "retry for a live version" but that has the same effect. Going to the root doesn't help, it isn't just a problem with that link.

Error 524

It's a very pretty error page, I'll give them that, but I suspect I shouldn't be seeing it. The rest of SE is working fine as far as I can tell.

Edit: As I was posting this, I guess, it did manage to load, but with this header present.

Using Cache

The plot thickens: It seems that I'm the only person actually experiencing this issue, but I am experiencing it both at home and at work. I'm in Redmond, so I wonder whether there's something geographical occurring, like a cache that's devoted only to my area, or even to the west coast? I've tried it on three computers now, one of which is never used for anything real so it shouldn't have any outside affect. And just for the record, at no point have I seen any problems with any other SE site.

  • Back up for me. Can you still repro?

  • @hichris123 It doesn't seem quite as keen to give me that very error page, but it's been sitting and loading with a blank page for around a minute, now. Oct 29, 2014 at 19:53

    I'm getting the same error after a minute of waiting for load as well. I am on a different cloudflare cache as well. Oct 29, 2014 at 20:18
  • I'm getting the same error (off and on) from CloudFlare Los Angeles. Oct 29, 2014 at 20:24

    We have a ticket opened with CloudFlare; hope to get this resolved soon.

  • Didn't see this, but I did get mysteriously rate-limited for no obvious reason. Nov 3, 2014 at 20:21
