522 errors

Worth noting: I've had several American friends now tell me they're experiencing the same issue, so clearly it's not just a regional thing.

To Yak: In my case the issues happens with my residential connection (ISP is Rogers) and wireless (4G, also Rogers). My connection is not shared, but the residential is done via a router. I'm currently not using a proxy or VPN. As of posting I still have the issue. I'll PM you screenshots with a traceroute

Thank you for replies.
The prime suspect in this appears to be corrupted cache entries on Cloudflare's side. If you could test this out, I would appreciate it.
Take the direct image URL to d.facdn.net, that doesn't load with a 522 error, and add a random query string at the end of it like "?fdgkjhsdfgkjhwhateverrandomstring". If the theory is correct, the image should load for you.

i'm experiencing some lag (~5 to ~10 second delay)
nothing that serious so far, and i'm thinking that it may have something to do with my computer or internet

Yeah, it works, but is an actual fix to this problem being worked on so we don't have to waste our time doing that over and over, and so we can see all the thumbnails that are still missing, which there isn't a workaround for that we can use?

I'm just getting a plain ol' 522 Will Not Connecct, and have for the past 2 hours or so. I think the WuFlu has transmitted aminals -> hyOOmins -> FurAffinity, but that's just me. ;-)

Hello, Proto
Tried www.furaffinity.net: Xander the Kobold by XanderPendrake
loads the page but not the art. This makes me think file system permissions issues more than corrupted cache.
This page works perfectly fine on my end.

I'm getting a similar thing right now. People are commenting on the pictures that I'm not able to see, so obviously, it's happening to some and not others. There is also at least one where the thumbnail from my submissions page is not loading for me, but the full picture is.

Yeah, that honestly makes this even worse, some images seem to load for some who are experiencing this, but not others.

Hello, Proto
Yeah It's an oddity to me.
It'd be far easier if everyone had the same problem so we could pinpoint exactly where the issue is coming from.
It's not like I had the image cached either since I rarely use FA proper in the first place.

If I knew how the servers were made up, I would have a few theories on why this is, but I don't think any admin would give those to me for good reason.

This clearly isn't an issue originating with any of our devices--brand new images I've never seen or clicked on aren't working or don't have working thumbnails.

What would cause the exact same uncached pages to work for some and not others?
I can't find a single page on FA that's busted for me yet.

Hello, Proto
maybe it's affecting people's IPs?
I really wish I knew more about networking. All my experience is mostly user-side applications.
I have no idea why some users would be locked out whereas others are given free reign.
It seems to be that way if everyone who used a VPN changed their location to a different country.

But still. What are the mechanics behind it? I'm really curious.

maybe Canada region-blocked certain parts of it?
i'm not quite sure if it's even possible to block certain parts of a website and not the whole thing

I can see how it's possible, but it'd also take a whole lot of work. It'd be more effective to just block the whole thing and leave it at that.
Such a project to block just a part of the website and from what I've seen, even SFW art, would be pretty insane.
I could see maybe someone writing a bot to filter out stuff tagged as NSFW as soon as it's been posted but... that's just way too much work.

I already said it's not just Canadians experiencing it, and if that were the case, A LOT more people would be talking about this.
